    I bet you:

    1. Use Kazaa
    2. Don't run updated virus software

    Because as Ms. Mittens pointed out, you have the signature of a specific virus.

    You owe her a sweety pop.

    What Antivirus program are you running? When was it last updated? Is it in fact running?
    MsM seems to have the answer for you.

    Wanker, did you even go to the link MsM provided you with? It clearly states that the message "Patch the leaks or the ship will sink" is the sig of the Supova worm! Correct me if i am wrong, but just because a virus is most commonly recieved through Kazaa doesnt mean you couldnt have gotten it somewhere else. What about the following do you not understand?

    Because as Ms. Mittens pointed out, you have the signature of a specific virus.
    From Symantec's Web site...
    The W32.Supova.C.Worm displays the following message:

    Title: Just checkin' the walls...
    Message: Patch the leaks or the ship will sink
    When was the last virus scan you did? just to see, scan again. If nothing comes up, update your virus definitions and scan again. If that still comes clean, then i'm out of ideas.

    [edit] hey !mitaion rust, i guess we kinda crossed posts...curses!!! i would have been first if it werent for those nosey kids [/edit]
    \"Look, Doc, I spent last Tuesday watching fibers on my carpet. And the whole time I was watching my carpet, I was worrying that I, I might vomit. And the whole time, I was thinking, \"I\'m a grown man. I should know what goes on my head.\" And the more I thought about it... the more I realized that I should just blow my brains out and end it all. But then I thought, well, if I thought more about blowing my brains out... I start worrying about what that was going to do to my goddamn carpet. Okay, so, ah-he, that was a GOOD day, Doc. And, and I just want you to give me some pills and let me get on with my life. \" -Roy Waller
