Word perfect (well, not quite)

I was browsing a tech support forum today and a certain topic caught my eye:

Corel Word Perfect ---> Jesus

It is a post that dvk01 is helping on. Here is a quote from the user's first statement. I like that the guy has not lost his sense of humor over the ordeal:

Today when I turned my computer on, the Wordperfect icon on my desktop was renamed to "Jesus." Whereas I believe in Jesus, it don't believe that Wordperfect is Jesus (although it is probably moreso than MS Word) :) Just wondering if anyone has heard of any virus that would change icon names . . .

More likely that was a 'friend' using his computer, just renamed it.

I do get that at my churhc computers from time to time, although the naming convention is not the same :sign5:

I didn't get this part of the fix:

The O4 entry that starts dm***.exe ( it will be different every time it starts so I can't tell you exactly what it is but it will start DM then have 3 or 4 random letters then .exe


I can't find any dm***.exe file in the O4 entries.... :?

Checking my reading skills...lol

You know, this points out that when you (the user) gets infected, the choices are to get angry, get even, get clean or get plain silly :)

He must have a good sence of humour, he is using the onboard nVidia firewall/anti hacker. I have yet to see one of these work correctly.

It's part of the Wareout fix I beleive. I can't find it exactly but I'm pretty sure I read it as an addition to the fix somewhere.
