Read this article if you are still using IE6 (or even more importantly if you don’t know what I mean by IE6) and don’t want to end up with a smart virus ruining your computer
Recently my computer was infected by a virus. A very smart virus. This virus infected me just because I visited a web page. It was not sent through an email. I did not have to download anything. All I had to have in order to let this virus onto my machine is IE6. My anti-virus software did not stop it and once I was infected my protective software could not get rid of it. The virus then disabled my firewall and windows security settings, contacted a site and began to load my machine with many other viruses and trojan horses. I went from a couple infections to 21, and then rapidly on to 75 before I quickly unplugged the ethernet (internet) cable, and then spent over a week and many other people’s time trying to repair my poor computer.
