I’m Infected – Google Virus / Spyware checking.

In: General

17 Dec 2005

I was browsing through google for any new information on large scale PHP deployments, and to my surprise I got a message telling me my machine had been infected! Considering I am very careful what I run on my machine, and haven’t had a virus on my computer in over two or more years I was quite surprised. Admitedly I have installed applications that do contain spyware, and I quite promptly physically remove them from the registry, the file system, and ensuring that any application hooks are also removed.

I immediately ran an antivirus program and a number of other applications to ensure nothing was ary, which picked up nothing. Anyway heres the amusing little picture :) .
