Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Something strange is happening in my computer.
I do not know if this is the right forum to post in, and please feel free to re-locate my post.
Since this morning I have a little pixel-like thing moving in my computer screen. It is very little and crawls around like a very tiny ant. I thought it could be virus and I ran Norton 2008, but nothing was found. I used also Spybot, but the "bug" is still crawling around.
Has anybody heard about something similar and have any idea what it can be and what I should do to eliminate it? I searched WebmasterWorld, but I got nowhere.
Thank you for our help.
I did think of writing some LavaScript to get shot of it, but I've grown rather fond of it.
Neither was it a joke when I called tech support to find out how to tell whether my DSL was connected a couple of years ago when I had to hook up a new computer to the router by myself for the first time.
After he walked me through the whole troubleshooting routine checking connections and whether red or green lights were one (it was all fine), I asked him "But how can I know for sure that I'm connected?" He replied, "Ma'am, open up a browser window."
I did wet my pants
Seriously though, anyone who's home-based and has their computer anywhere near the kitchen, and has an over-ripe banana or old onion or potato potential, should know what remedies are available.
No big deal to have one, just leave it, unless it's a big one, then you might be in trouble.

I was going to use Spambot and Norton...but I can't seem to find it. Darn, I never use it.
The bug, at the same time, has crawled across Firefox's Find field, and is about assault webpages.
Maybe it'll start a tiny web in there.
For those of you who are laughing about this, just hope you don't get this bug virus. Not sure if I will lose my hard drive yet.
