June '08 - Internet Viruses.
a website called Free As A Bird and it's all
about the anime called Appleseed. While I was
updating the site I was looking for wallpaper
pics to add onto the site. I've done some 'home-made'
ones that are screenshots from the movie but
I wanted some official ones too.
searched on the internet my anti-virus
detected a virus so I disconnected the
computer from the internet, then deleted all
of the Temporary Internet Files then did a
virus check and it found nothing so it must
have blocked it successfully.
day I used the internet and had no problems
but the day after when I searched for
Appleseed again my anti-virus detected a
virus and then the anti-virus itself stoppped
working. Then something tried to download
onto the computer. I disconnected the modem
from the computer but it was too late and
already had the virus. Internet Explorer
stopped working, the anti-virus stopped
working, Windows Firewall kept switching
itself off and System Restore wouldn't start.
I keep everyhting backed-up and was able to
reformat the hard disk and reinstall
everything but it did take all evening. I
couldn't understand the point of the virus or
what it was trying to achieve.
