Viruses, How I Loathe Thee...


It seems that Vista Smart Security 2010 is a virus of some sort. Malware. Is there a difference? Anyway, I kind of guessed, because I'd had a virus once before that was all like "ZOMG!!! U gotz spywarez!!! Buy this nao n killz it!!!" Also, I couldn't find the so-called program anywhere, and I figured if it was legit, I could remove it. Also, the "scan" it runs claims there's a virus in an excellent program I bought new and installed ages ago, which I've never had problems with.


Ah, well. Viruses stink, what can I say? Like dialogue.

Bad dialogue is like a virus. It can look as legit as it wants, but all it does is weigh down the story.

I take pride in finding odd analogies for things.


  1. I am very much enjoying your odd analogy. :) And like viruses (virii?), bad dialogue usually takes several rounds to kill.

  2. ROFL! I like that analogy. Yep, I do.

    Thanks for visiting my blog today! The Twain quote you shared was cool.

    I see you're on AW. I'm not there too, too often, but maybe I'll see you around? :)

  3. I'm sorry about your virus :( But odd analogies are fun :)

    On a side note, malwarebytes is a great freeware tool for getting rid of spyware/malware/etc... You should google it.

  4. @Amy: (Oooh, I feel so Internet savvy, doing the @ thing!) ZOMG! That's exactly right. Bad dialogue is one persistent little bugger.

    @Janna: Twain says a lot of great things. Well, said. Considering he's dead and all. AW is probably the best thing to ever happen to me. ^.^

    @Stefanie: I will definitely have to check it out! Thanks for the suggestion. ^.^

    I think I'm getting all too fond of the "^.^" smiley... thing.
