I've never been hit by a computer virus but in the past 30 days, I 've been hit by two different spyware trojans: Antivirus Action and HDD Fix. Getting rid of this computer-sabotaging crap is annoying but doable. But the real question is, since these are nuisance programs that try to extort you into buying their "solutions" for fake problems, how do they not get shut down? They're asking for money so, unlike the typical virus-creating-and-spreading vermin, they are stationary targets. There's no way law enforcement can claim that they can't track down these spyware extortionists. Does anybody know what's going on here? Thanks.
