Any great war general will tell you to know your enemy, get inside their head, think like they think, act like they act, become their best friend, as this will prepare you to overcome your enemy. A computer virus is your enemy, is it not? The only way you can truly defeat an enemy is if you know all you can about it. So engage yourself with the virus, keep an eye out for any security messages that pop up, as these usually provide the exact name of the virus that has infected your computer. If it gives you a security message that says more info click here, or anything to click on that does not require you to enter your personal financial information, then you need to click on it. Just make sure you are prepared to write down any file name and directory path (example: C:UsersYourUserNameAppDataLocalLowTempVirus) or the name of the product that it gives you, and always remember to NEVER give it your personal financial information.

Neither the computer viruses, nor the anti-virus programs are created equal. In fact this past August I was attacked by one of the most vicious computer viruses created, called the fFollower.exe, which is a nasty, evil trojan horse. The fFollower.exe computer virus creates start-up files, registry files, and various types of other files which will copy names of files that were already on your computer, making duplicate files to tie up your computer processes and resources. While this trojan horse is doing all that, it is also creating new system processes. The symptoms of this computer virus are horrible; all of a sudden your computer begins the restart process, and as soon as your computer restarts, a window pops up that says something about the fFollower.exe, with a little picture on it that looks like a devil. Then, that window vanishes as quickly as it came and the next thing you know, system windows, Internet Explorer windows, and JavaScript windows start popping up so fast your head starts spinning, I almost thought I was in a scene from the Exorcist. All of which floods the computer processes, and can only lead to one outcome… a computer running slow until the eventual and inevitable computer crash. As I had just signed up with a new internet service provider and received from them the Norton AntiVirus Online, I thought what luck, and started the virus scan. Time was running out for Ace (my computer) and I; every minute that passed, Ace was closer to death, I could just see it. The damage this trojan horse had already caused was drastically slowing down my computer, and the Norton antivirus virus scan showed nothing but a tracking cookie. My luck was out and I was left with no other option.
