    Just wanted to pass this information along:

    Personal computers infected with a Trojan that tries to redirect their browsers to malicious sites may be cut off from the Internet on March 8, an information technology site said.

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will unplug on March 8 the Domain Name System servers it set up to replace rogue DNS servers that sent victims to malicious sites.

    Some links below for additional information:

    Consider using Microsoft Security Essentials for Trojan protection.
    The program updates about every 8 hours, every day, and scans on demand.
    This system is free and keeps computer systems fairly safe.

    MSSE is good, but there is no great all in one solution. McAfee and Norton are CRAP. My contract with ESET expires in a couple of months, and moving to MSSE. Equivalent protection, at a much reduced cost.
