Week 40 of POOP

As this feature enters 40 weeks, now it's been revealed that those masters of disaster at Google have been allowing criminals to serve up malware!

Cyberthugs have been using the embattled Google Groups to distribute fake antivirus software. Google Groups users are told to follow instructions that take them to a website that downloads this virus and tells them to supply their credit card details to buy this phony program.

I wonder if this is anything like the toolbar that Google placed on my computer without telling me (and which doesn't work anyway). I'm not able to remove this 98-meg memory hog, because the button for it in the "Add/Remove Programs" folder doesn't work.
