I am a "House MD" fan and missed Monday night's episode. I searched online to see if I could find the episode to watch. One of the search results took me to a sight called Midnight online tv, "won't post the link for your safety", and clicked on the video. It downloaded "Total Security" instead of the episode and said I had all sorts of viruses and needed to purchase it. Shocked I was able to delete with Microsoft Security Essentials, but I still thought it was funny. First time I ever encountered any type of spyware in years Laughing

These rogue pushers are getting more and more agressive with their crap. Fortunately you knew right away it was bad, but some people fall for the tricks and end up with a real mess.
