Me: "I'll be home in a few."
Wife: "I turned computer on and Microsoft Essentials is saying it's found a virus and asking if you want to clean computer?"

I've had my family fall for many scams, my brother just resonantly bought himself a new laptop... He was casually looking at "shares" when he said my computer jumped up saying files where infected, obviously being scared over his new computer bleeding to death he downloaded the supposed anti-virus...
turns out it was that common virus which looks like my computer but it's actually still the web browser, they're nasty things to get off once downloaded...
it was really quite amusing, he had forgotten to do is fly up after an interment season with his shares.. >_<
