I wondered if my home PC has been infected?
Apparently not.
Here's a very quick and safe test.

Hi there. That is a cool test. I will reply if for no other reason to bump it to the top.

Recently, I was on a very popular message forum when a warning came up saying that my computer was infected with such and such a virus or whatever. I was immediately suspicious and was in no way going to click anywhere in the box. I went to the tab at the bottom of the screen to override but was not able to get the right click to work. A very bad indication. Then I went into task manager to the applications tab and as soon as i would try to right click to select "close" from the drop down menu, the selection would shift to the next application below it. Beware! I finally got it by shutting down Internet Explorer processes (processes tab) one by one rather randomly until I found it and it closed.

Nice idea. Moderators/Admins. Any possibility of making this a STICKY so it is at the top for the next few months?
