LOL! Fortunately, the time stamp is misleading. I think I posted that comment around midnight.
At least I think I finally killed the spyware menace by around 2 am (thank you Spyware Doctor). It was just unbelievably irritating -- the popups kept jumping up in the middle of whatever I was doing every five minutes (sometimes five or six in a row), and no matter how often I ran pest software and restarted, the pests kept re-seeding themselves. Gah.
Now, to get some actual work done today, now that I don't have to restart my computer every five minutes!
