    im a little confused, i recently got an infection (or 2...) from kids downloading stuff off the net onto my computer :mad: the setup was called zwinky, Avast picked it up and delt with it so im not really worried about the infection but, more of what on earth this thing is!? i googled it and it came up with some game, i was just wondering, does any1 know or even have this and know what it does?!?

    well ive done some research and i can tell you what it does: it is a suspicious site, and the download is recognized as a Win32 virus, it also installs MyWebSearch which is adware/malware depending on who you are, either way it slows down your computer largely and should be avoided... Just another reason to supervise children AT ALL TIME while browsing the internet and download Spywareblaster and Mcafee site adviser for your own safety!
