      Apparently, hacking is on the rise! Last night I was playing Yahoo! Games with a friend. I was using Google Chrome for my browser, but suddenly an Inteet Explorer screen popped up saying my computer was being attacked! Then, all these tiny pop-ups at the bottom of the screen telling me what was attacking my computer. There was an option of Do you want to allow this attack?, so I clicked No, but that was the WRONG thing to do! When I did that, it took me to a web site for AG Security Suite, a spy-ware program. Once I did this, my computer was almost dead. I couldn't open any programs, including the task manager. I looked it up on dh's computer while this was happening, and here's what I found out: it is a fake spy-ware company that disables nearly everything- it's trying to get you to buy their bogus program, but it really just takes your credit card information. It took almost two hours to get that crap off of my computer, and I already have two spy-ware programs running- this program is strong and gets passed almost every security program. So beware: if you see this pop up on your computer, disable your inteet connection immediately!!

        Wow…omg…thanks Rae for the heads up!!

        "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
