Found this warning about VirusRanger (VirusRanger.com):

VirusRanger is a rogue anti-spyware program. It usually makes it's way to
users' PCs by way of Trojans. Once active, VirusRanger bombards the user
with annoying popups and system notifications warning him of a supposed
infection. The trial version produces a falsified system scan full of
threats. These threats can supposedly only be removed with the full version
of the program, which is as fake as the trial, only costs money.



Do not trust VirusRanger - it is a scam. Do NOT download or buy it and block
virusranger.com using your HOSTS file.

Thanks.  I'll try it, although I'm very suspicious of everything right now.
What pricks, scamming people that way.

I posted it the way I did because I couldn't find 1 posting on VirusRanger,
not one!  I wanted to be sure those pricks couldn't make mine go away to
easily.

It happened to my computer.  Screwed up my day!  I made a mistake by
clicking to download some active-X addition to view some news video.  Later,
I knew it wasn't XP giving me those messages about spyware and sending me to
the VirusRanger site.  They cause it to get you to by the software.
Rip-off!!!
