Gratefulness: malware detectors/protectors/cleaners
[what are you talking about dude?]
Got something bad a week or so ago (even though I had up to date virus/firewall rules in place - serves me right for running windows). Partly my fault for not tricking out firefox with all the latest security goodies (I heart NoScript). But after much pain I got everything cleaned up and ready to go. SpyBot and HijackThis are your friends.
I am grateful for malware defenders.
