I. My Dell computer (catch) this very bad and vicious virus called «The Israfel Worm» written by someone called MachineDramon. (Weird because MachineDramon (be) the name of a cartoon character.) Anyway I (download) a file from the internet and when I (open) it it (show) a picture of Avril Lavigne which I later (learn) from a website (mean) that the virus has started to start its infection to my computer. The virus (attack) something called «active X» and (prevent) lots of applications from working such as adobe photoshop elements. It also (prevent) me from going to any web page that (use) the word «Virus» to prevent me from getting information on how to delete it I guess. It also automatically (stop) any virus scanning programs from working so I can’t get rid of it. It also (display) a very disturbing message when ever I (try) to use the CD drive that (say) «Freedom to Palistine, Iraq, and Afghanistan! » in Spanish. Anyone (know) how to get rid of this? I really (not/want) to format my HD again.

He (be) in a relaxed mood and replied jokingly at first and then (get) down to business: «I (have) a method that will guarantee you never catch a virus or have any problems with your computer.» «What (be) this amazing method?» » Don’t turn it on! » Danny (smile) triumphantly. He (continue): «Computers (be) inherently insecure and whatever you do, you will, sooner or later, run into problems.» Danny always (tell) it like it is: «However, there (be) a number of things you can do on a daily or weekly basis that will considerably reduce your chances of running into trouble. Cut both your hands off or don’t pay your electricity bills.»
