Exclamation i've been hit:(

okay, if you remember, a few days ago CmdrMic claimed he recieved a virus from a section of our wonderful site. well, a few minutes ago, while viewing the houses thread, my system completely shut down(like his did). it then rebooted, and my anti-virus software was going insane. almost 250 problems were found in a minute(and i did a scan when i first got home, it was all clean). luckily, my dads computer genius friend has put some great security on our computer, so whatever the infection was was wiped out, except for the small fact i have several hundred copies of microsoft word on my computer now i was just curious if anyone thought these could be linked, or if both of us have just had bad luck. thanks

I'm glad everything on your computer is alright, but are you sure it was from WI?
It could just be a coincidence.

Ok, I don't know if this is definitely related or not, but right after checking out the WI yesterday morning, I got a big virus warning from Avast....the virus program I run on my laptop. It immediately suggested letting it run a scan in boot mode. It found and contained the virus. It also found over 200 spyware items, and I had just done my weekly scan the night before and shouldn't have had more than a couple in less than 12 hours. WW and WI are the first place I go in the morning before the day gets busy, so I had not been anywhere else. I didn't connect it at first, but I will respond to this report in case there is something more to it. Anyone else have any problems?

Wow, I'm glad your computer is okay! The Microsoft Word copies are probably linked, so you might want to wait to do anything about them until someone like your dad's computer genius friend can fix it!! Good luck!!!
