Default Something that reall pisses me off

Allright, I have my brothers computer and it's infected with a whole bunch of viruses. My mother says I'm the one that does it by pulling up espinthebottle, ebaumsworld, google images/websites about computers, ebay, and my AIM buddy list. I've never had any viruses occur when I do this and I somehow doubt I ever will. She pulls up... (well at least what I have seen because she kicks me out when she uses the PC and hides whatever she does) fowarded E-mails, click on those stupid banners that say your computer is infected by viruses, and other various things. Also when she accesses her account the virus attacks only her account and not mine... strange huh? Also right after she uses the computer and I get on, I get swarmed by adware such as barginbuddy.

I would like you guys to voice your opinion about this. I'm almost positive she is the one that is screwing up the PC and not me.

Haha, looks like your mom wants you to be blamed...

Some good Anti-Virus programs are Norton, McAfee, AVG etc. There are also some really good Anti-Spyware programs are MS Ant-Spyware, Spybot: S&D 1.3, Ad-Aware, Spyware Doctor etc.

Is she admin? If not, install a keylogger and see what she does. It's not illegal for this, becuase you're doing it for educational and informative legal purposes; plus it's your computer. If she is the admin, then I dunno. I think she's the one with the viruses, cause I go to those websites too and I never get anything. Try a hidden camera... but otherwise, yeah, it's her. yeah, and run avg, norton, and all them to get rid of those viruses.

It's my brothers computer and I'm admin. A keylogger would be a good idea. Where can I get one? Oh ya, she took away my Pringles(cheesy kind) and banned me from the computer this weekend. LOL... thank god for remote networking and this really crappy Emac.

Yep... she would go nuts about a keylogger. I would have to hide the file/program.

Thanks you guys.

I have a really good anti-spyware program in the hardware section. Search for "Starr's Spyware Removal Tutorial" it is buried deep.
