My antivirus program picked up on a gizmo virus and removed it. Everyone should run their virus scan and remove gizmo! Hopefully you guys didn't get one.

I got a gizmo virus too! It's a trojan. But since nobody was saying I thought it was only me. shocked.gif

What's the name of your virus?

What kind of virus did you guys get? Mine can't be removed. And I'm wondering if it's the one I got from gizmo or from my friend's USB so. I'm sure I got one from gizmo though.

T_T is anyone here getting weird pop-ups? Seriously. I need to have my computer reformatted because of this virus, I'm just hoping it's not because of gizmo.

Crap. Hope I didn't get one.

I don't think so. I've had my mac over a year and have yet to ever get a virus.

I know that I uninstalled Gizmo as soon as well "you know" happened on Wednesday. I have no use for it anymore.

Yeah. My normal waking up time is 1 PM. I always have to alarm my phone at 9 AM to vote. Try to vote for two hours. Nap for an hour, then alarm my phone at 12 PM. Vote for two hours during west coast time. It was sooo stressful. wacko.gif I'd be willing to go through all that again though if Anoop's still in the competition. sad.gif
