    Just picked up a particualrly tricky bit of malware. It's phony anti-spyware. If you explore the scary warnings, it takes you to its home page, programmci.com, where you are asked to buy the fake securtiy software. I only found a little about it during searches. One blog has it up as a fresh post just today.
    Any ideas on this one? Is it new?
    I'm looking through the other posts and it seems like I'll have to push a number of fixes through and force a repair. It's one that won't let any of my exe files run.
    I could easily just reformat this machine. It sits in the back room and uploads weather data. But i like to see if I can beat this stuff. I usually win.
