    Nup!

    You know me ;-)

    Thanks though, it would appear Im far from alone in this dilemma mind you.

    Any word on why it would have only started today? I was connected fine all last night until around 2AM when I rebooted the Gateway.. What would have made it begin today of all days?

    Hey Chill, It happened to me once last week & i didn't realise what was happening.
    When I was returning to my PC ,I saw that popup just for a few seconds, but not long enough to read it.
    It must of been a oneoff at the time as everything was fine till this morning.

    cheers steve

    This has to be one of the worst windows attacks in a while. I moderate a tech forum on another NZ site and it exploded with questions about this attack and its effects today.

    Firewall and the specific Windows patch is whats needed to slow it. It surprises me that the public still obviously neglects to use whats available to protect ones PC from the evildoers. A windows machine without a decent firewall is like a bank with all its cash laid out on tables in a public space....asking for it!
