I am beginning to believe that it is a software company conspiracy. Just think about it! The companies who write software and software protection hire programmers to write viruses to send out into the world. Then once a innocent computer user see that his or her computer is infected; the software protection company pushes their virus protection program to the consumer.
It's a vicious, and corrupt circle. Just like car dealers in the US. (Buy the car from their dealership and once it starts to go bad..say after 10,000 miles, they'll give you such a load of bullsh** that the unlearned person in the realm of mechanics will buy it and be sucked into pointless repairs)
