A picture in an ad? I've never had an actual "Virus". But lots of adware and malware. I have several programs for dealing with these threats. Avoiding IE helps.

I wonder if The Samba takes measures to avoid this these days? I looked at several ads on there last night, and nothing seems to have affected my computer.

There were $40k Vanagons, rare versions for sure, but still over priced. I found several relatively ordinary Vanagons priced at double what they're worth.

it does not help, that in places like WA, when you buy a $500 car they try and tax you on the "value" of the car close to $9000.
I would sell all of mine to them for that price...

There's a way around that. You do a little research and submit a copy of a low book value from one of the common car guides. It's worked every time for me.

Post V*rus

Yep ;

A real nasty one too , I had to take my tower in to work where one of the guys is a 'puterhead and he was able to fix it .

I no longer use IE , I'm using firefox but it's way slower than it was for the first two weeks...

Takes 1 minute at least just to open and it didn't save all my bookmarks like it said it would .

Taxing you at over the actual sales price is against Federal law , there was a HUGE court case over that 10 + years ago , they're required to accept whatever you claim was the purchase price , sometimes you have to get a supervisor but never raise your voise nor be insulting or you instantly loose .

This is why I have Auto Club ~ they just do what I ask them to do and they're polite too .
