Hey, just a quick message, I had been checking out the ezboard for Canadian law schools/students and got infected with spyware after posting a message. There was a pop up add and I may have selected it accidently, but I don't think so. It was a real pain to get rid of, so just be careful.

JBI,

The same thing happened to me.  If anyone else gets infected with that spyare that underlines certain keywords in IE, download Ad-aware or Spybot (both are free and really good) to get rid of that crap.  I only wished someone mentioned that the site was loaded with spyware.  When it happened to me, I didn't know which site did it.  But yeah, it definitely was a real pain to scan my entire drive and remove it.

I was banned from there for comments on stabbing people from "Christians interested in Windsor Law school."

As if you can be Christian and be a lawyer! Heh, JOKING people.  But i was banned for the first part.

I was lucky that my roommate is a computer whiz and was able to get rid of it. I had spy sweeper but every time it deleted the file, it would re-spawn. Grrr, stupid computer nerds who don't have anything better to do than to write viruses and spyware! geez, folks, do yourself a favour and go get laid!

Ok, rant over. And MAtt, good job for getting kicked out. The joys of living in a Politically Correct society.
