Obama’s blue screen of death

January 29, 2010

Rocky thought that reading President Obama’s entire State of the Union speech would be virtuous and useful. He was sadly wrong.

Rocky’s primary computer contracted a horrible virus yesterday from a website which re-printed the speech.

If this was a political conspiracy, then Google is behind it too — as Google directed Rocky to this insidious site. And, if Al Gore “invented” the internet, then President Obama’s speech just un-invented it (for Rocky.)

The site implanted the “Internet Security 2010″ malware program — which takes control of the computer … and eventually results in the “Blue Screen of Death.”

Several websites advertise repairs for the virus ($39.95), however after consulting with Computer Man, Rocky learned that the virus is essentially irreversible. And the software vendors are simply extorting money.

[Disclosure: Rocky’s primary computer was rebuilt from scratch, and his backup systems worked fine. Thanks to Computer Man for his expert advice. No thanks to President Obama. Rocky wonders whether a Republican President’s State of the Union might result in a “red” Screen of Death?]

    Is there no limit to this man’s insidious agenda? I thought he only wanted to kill Grandma. Now he wants our computers too?

      Murali: Rocky didn’t enjoy the experience, but he’s happy that you enjoyed his tale.

    Fakename – It’s not clear who was behind the virus. It’s always possible that it was part of that vast right wing conspiracy….Sargeant Friday is working on the case right now.

    It also could have been the work of the military-industrial complex, or possibly, KAOS.

    Sitting at work, I made an interesting observation, the program we use in the pathology lab has a blue background……the laboratory I work in is government owned (;
    on a more serious note, I had a similar virus infect my PC which produced the blue screen of death, not once but twice resulting in the motherboard dying what was even more frustrating it happened the day after I bought my PC.
