THANKS I didnt see the link the first time around. As I type this, my Microsoft Updates as well as my Avast antivirus definitions are CURRENT 4/14/09. So I feel pretty safe for now.

Here is my take: whenever my pc is 'taken over' by one of these 'buy this or that spyware' pop ups, I minimize(because you CAN'T click the X to get out of it). I then click my START button and REBOOT, after I REBOOT I run a FULL SCAN with my anti virus(I have it set to scan on every reboot as well) but I do it again anyway. It may seem like a pain but it's worth the trouble. NOW here is what I DO EVERY time I sing in to the internet. I do NOT use the browser icon. I click START then I go to WINDOWS UPDATE. From the mainstream news as well as other sources I understand that if you get in to WINDOWS UPDATE you are NOT infected with Conficker but IF you TRY to go to WINDOWS UPDATE or TRY to RUN your anti virus and NEITHER will work, then you are most likely infected. I have not heard HOW you fix this if you get infected.
