PC Virus Alert -- Protect Yourself

From Americablog

If you are a Windows user you should be aware that a BIG virus will hit tomorrow.

Also, please make sure every Windows machine is patched. Follow the instructions of your Operating system here.

Also, there is a free removal tool being provided by Mcaffee and it can be found here.

Make sure you click on the link on the upper right for the STINGER application.

If they are already infected, the WORM prevents the anti-virus software from updating automatically and it prevents people from getting to security websites. What is worse, if they did not update their OS with the Microsoft patch I sent you before they got infected, the WORM makes the system THINK that it already has that update! What this means is that the end-users Windows OS will not update itself to fix the hole that the Worm is using. The end-user will see a dialog box that tells them their system is already up to date and does not need the patch. It is the WORM that is making the system tell the end user that!

At this point, the only way I can determine that a person can be 100% sure to be un-infected is to run the STINGER application I sent you earlier. I ran it on all of my personal systems. If they cannot get to that site, I would be concerned as that may mean they are infected.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems
of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog
has a lot of exclusive content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being stolen? I'd really
appreciate it.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I am really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.

Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?
