Very very pissed off...

First of all, my damn internet keeps dropping connection. I have broadband, and it usually has no problems. But for the last few days, I've been losing connection at around 6pm. I rang my service provider, they say its something to do with the phone exchange, or with the phone lines, but they can't get a maintenance person out until Tuesday. Which is bollocks I reckon.
Secondly, I got a virus on my computer today. Damn MSN virus. Its one of those ones that sends mass IM's to all your contacts that are online at the time. I'm not blaming the person who sent it to me, coz she didn't know what it did. It came up as a link, so stupid me, thinking she was sending me just a regular link, clicked on it, opened it. BAM, virus time. So it sent to everyone on my list who was online. I think a couple of people may have got caught out. Took me all damn afternoon to remove it, and still things are fucking up. But they're only minor problems. The major one is, my firewall is completely screwed. Lucky I have one I can use for backup.
So if you do happen to get this virus.. which is named ssms.exe DO NOT OPEN IT! It'll come in the form of a link, saying "Is this you?" with a link with your MSN address in it. If you do happen to accidentally have it, use something like SpyBot Search and Destroy to remove it.
Please be careful with ANYTHING you click on, or anything that is sent to you.

I think it was Daniel who ended up sending me that link thing on msn once. I didnt open it. I remember once that rob got pissed that I would click on any old link and he told me not to click any .exe files that I didnt know. So I never had that problem of getting the virus but others did and said it was hard to get rid of. MSN is the devil!! I'm glad I got rid of it, to be honest and I'm rethinking about getting it back on my other computer.

They better step to it by fixing your net problem. Im starting to get problems with my connection too but it's nothing to worry about...yet :p

I just wish more people would get google chat, then i could get rid of msn, ive had nothing but trouble with it. I didnt even realise it was an .exe file, I just thought..someone's made a site about me, and god knows ive got enough enemies on here that someone would do that. so i was curious. Stupid of me I know now.

yep Jenny, its been around for a while now, but I've always managed to escape it. Some of the people I know online that arent on my MSN got it too. About 15 people Ive heard of so far.

Use Trillian or Gaim to connect to MSN. Those programs are very secure and won't end up installing viruses and crap.

Finally got the firewall fixed, thank god.

As for the connection, I need a new modem. $189 later....NOT IMPRESSED!
