Default I'm back!!!!!!!!

If you missed me or not is not important. I've been missing for over a week due to
my computer getting a virus. I had a recurring screen that wouldn't close that said
"Ultimate Defender" . It wanted me to download programs that would mine my system for password etc!

Has anyone ever noticed that when a new virus appears the fix is ready in 2 days?

Without mentioning names, but virus protection software companies have been busted for creating viruses just so they can be the first ones with a fix........the thinking behind this madness is to promote sales!
