Ok here's what happend. I went to work this morning and brought my laptop with me so i could do some Website eddinting etcetera. So when the wirelesss link pops up (Running Windows XP, at the time) I clicked Connect. then all of the sudden I get a crap load of Error Messages from my Ad-Ware Watcher/Remover. It's saying that something is trying to modify my System Registery so obbviousliy I block the attacks. Then I tried to add a new FTP access folder in My network Places and for some reason it wouldn't do anythig when I clicked on it (typicle Windows....) so I thought maybe my Ad-ware program was blocking me from adding an FTp Folder so i turned it off. Then I tryed to Make the folder, still nothing... Tryed turning the Ad-Ware program back on and it wouldn't...? So I try clicking on the internet and my home page was somthing else, XPZ77.somthing or another, and I exited out. Then I tried to click on my Anit-Virus to scan, but guess what? The icon turned GREY when I double clicked it and it wouldn't let me open it. then I opend my Start box and ALL of the files had that deafalt icon when the OS can't read the file type. I am PI$$ED!!!!!! So i sayed F U Windows, More like Bimbos... It was my fault that I got the virus or w/e it was because I disabled the Ad-ware blocker for a few seconsd. The point it is there are too many viruses for Windows (~144,000 so the Mac comercials say), How many Linux Viruses are there constantly targeting random people? I spoke with a Dell Software Tech and even he is running a Linux OS system ( Ubuntu). He said he has seen to many problems assosciated with Windows. he sayed there are so many holes in the system that they don't know how/won't fix them. Check it out, it's free. you can try it before you install it (running from a CD) and see the OS without installing it/formating your computer. http://www.ubuntu.com/ So I have just installed Ubuntu linux OS and I am LOVIN it. i am installing the updates right now and i am going to get right down and start learning the program, I have never in my life used anything but Windows so this is going to be one heck of a challenge (doubt it ) for me. With Windows XP I had to set up my network computers, with Ubuntu, it did it automaticly and was ready to go when i clicked on network Connections smile.gif What i like most is that all of the Applications like the graphic design is almost like Adobe photoShop 7.0 which is what I use to do my webdesign layouts and such. I will let you guys know how things progress when they do. BTW, on the Windows XP, I did have AVG Free and Lavasoft Ad-ware Plus (I payed $22 for it), so I guess this was a new virus that AVG didn't update for yet.
