I hope my cat didn't just give me a computer virus!
 
I left my desk for a few and I came back to find my crazy cat tapping away on the keyboard. I look at the screen and it says "in order for your new settings to take effect please restart your computer" or something like that. He must have hit "yes" to some pop-up installer thing. What did he do? Arg!! The little devil!

Make sure you don't have the Ratonexe file in your system. According to AVG's website's resource about this Trojan...it enables your computer to turn on and get online (Acts as a Rat dialer) and download loud in real-time rat noises located in your nearest dark alley in your neighborhood (If you have Zonealarm Pro DO NOT give Ratexe server access) thus scaring your kitty kat away and all other feline animals.

:thumbsup: Thanks for the advice!

As of now I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary. Except that around 5am my computer now starts bugging me to give it a snack. I wonder what that means...
