I've got Aurora on my p.c. right now, but I can't figure out where I got it from. I have downloaded anything recently, and I just wondered how it could get on my computer. I've visited the MySpace website and several other similar websites, so could it just jump onto my computer from just passively visiting those websites?

I end up getting so many viruses and spyware/adware problems that I now have two computers-- one for getting on the internet and one for doing homework assignments. The one I use for homework assignments is not hooked up to the internet at all, and so it never has any problems. The one that is hooked to the internet is the one which I use only for temporary storage. When I get something like this Aurora thing, I just go through a system recovery and wipe the hard drive completely clean to get rid of the virus/spyware, etc.
