This is kind of scary, these "cleaners" are often spyware in disguise. I think this link should be disabled for users who have their PCs set up for auto downloads.

Hang on a minute, I have a feeling that I know what that might be, it is a .pps file. Yes, I have checked it out and it is what I thought, very amusing!

Perhaps I will move it back.

I downloaded that file, scanned it and ran it. Now I have smears all over the screen

(Some points go to Gamemaster1967 for voicing concern when thought to be needed )

Absolutely, especially since the time I got caught earlier in the year, I will never live that one down.

I'm dealing with a major hijacker on the browser on my other machine at the moment, so GM's sentiments are echoed...thanks for watching out for us!

ON the other hand, that's cute.
