My girlfriend made the mistake of using IE to watch youtube and all of sudden the screen went like this:

Working on removing this shit.

Seriously, how did this get on my computer? It seems that it's be spreading through youtube.

Storm Center has traced it to not yet having applied the emergency JRE 7.11 patch and visiting a certain network of gay bondage web sites.

No, this is a serious issue. You need to talk to your girlfriend. Whatever she's doing on those bondage websites, YOU're not getting any of it.

You have to send them a 30min home-made bondage movie before they let you go. So I was told anyway.

Had to reboot into safe mode with command line as all other safe modes didn't work, create a new admin account, then i installed some free malware scanner(can't remember the name now) which got rid of most of it, then i ran ccleaner and removed the program from start up. thats pretty much it.

Reinstall your girlfriend's computer with a real operating system please. Something like Plan 9.

Not nearly tedious enough, what about Linux from Scratch? Or start from absolute basics and write a kernel in brainfuck.

More importantly, he needs to take her to task for keeping her lesbian bondage fetish secret from him.

That's a different brainfuck entirely.

Don't fuck with him. He doesn't know what his girlfriend does in her free time, that alone is something to worry about.

Was it Saudi that recently deployed RFID chips for monitoring the woman who tries to escape from the kitchen?
