Well done Linux... glad to see you step in here with some knowledge.First step as Linux has shown, is not nuking (reformatting) the hard drive. Sure you can do it... but there are easier things to do first.This Java script stuff / malware is really quite annoying. I was hit with JS:Prontexi from Anandtech.com during March of 2010 (first time ever for anything... for more info on JS:Prontexi see: http://forums.anandt....php?p=29544429 & https://blog.avast.c...%93-jsprontexi/ ). I was very "sore" at ESET / Explorer for not having blocked it, and switched to Firefox (added ADBLOCK) as a result. Simple enough to deal with, but very frustrating when I first was hit.For a very good "self help" article at keeping this junk at bay, solving malware problems and "better" (i.e. more secure) ways to browse, please read this excellent article in MaximumPC: http://www.maximumpc..._latest_malware
