Are you aware of scareware? It’s a form of malware that injects (infects) itself on your PC and then displays very authentic-looking error messages that warn you that a virus scan has found that you have been infected with computer viruses and need to purchase the “security software package” to get rid of them. The messages are false, you have no viruses. But you have been infected with scareware that is almost impossible to remove from your PC. Bill Mullins has written an excellent article on this subject. Read it at Bill Mullins’ Weblog – Scareware is Destroyware – Not Just Malware, you won’t regret it.
