Rate this Entry
It is true that as many as 300,000 computer users may lose their internet on Monday when the FBI shuts down some malware servers. The FBI has been warning users for months about this impending shut down but many still have not done the simple check to make sure that their computer is scrubbed of any malicious programs or viruses. It is actually quite simple to run the check and avoid any issues on Monday.
