RE: back to MS problems....

My husband's computer got the same virus- he didn't bother setting up the
antivirus software that HE recommended (and then I bought).  He then got
another virus that was internet based.  I did set up PC-Cillin on my
computer- no viruses on my computer: ).  I am dually impressed with the
software as it works AND doesn't interfere inordinately with other computer
functions.  Wednesday I cleaned the 2nd virus off of his computer (which
required the virus scan and altering a line in the regedit screen for 2
seconds to halt the virus loop) and loaded the antivirus software- including
"real-time" scan and auto-updates.  Within 30 minutes, it had stopped 2
other virus attacks. No problems since then.

Not the same problem, but the same Microsoft.

Our MIS guy at work told me that at home his computer had become
infected by one of those annoying but mostly harmless viruses that kept
directing him to a specific search engine when he clicked on Google. He
said he found it and eliminated it and decided it had gotten into his
machine by way of Microsoft's Java program, which apparently holely. So
he decided to eliminate MS Java and download Sun Java. He said you
can't just eliminate MS Java, but you can disable it if you remove it
from the command line. Which he did--and immediately a warning popped
up that said if he eliminated MS Java he would not be able to download
anything from the internet. But he eliminated it anyway, went on line,
and downloaded Sun Java with no problems.
