Don't go to UTube.com

Last night I wanted to see the Dominos Pizza Video and heard it was on YouTube so I mistakenly typed UTube.com and whammy I got hit with several spyware viruses and it took like 6 hours to clean my PC. I had pop-ups coming every 2 minutes.

Why do these stupid sites exist and why can't the Govt' shut them down - I know they are usually run from foreign countries.

Just an FYI.

Interesting, thanks Lil Bastard. I didn't know about those tools.

A Dell support tech recently installed the malwarebytes on my PC while investigating another problem. It found 6 key loggers my other systems had missed.

Google MajorGeeks for all sorts of free stuff to D/L.
