Just one of the many female profiles on MySpace that does that. Someday people will learn not to click on any downloads at that site. I have a customer who clicked on a download for Flash because the site said it was needed. I had already updated his PC previous. If it wasn't for the anti-malware programs I installed he would have been in a fine mess.
