Microsoft "security"

In the process of dicking around with the desktop machine trying to get IE upgraded so that I could do my taxes, I installed the patches from Microsoft's critical-security-flaw-of-the-month club. This made the machine more secure, right?

Somehow in this process, my firewall got disabled. This morning I got up to find that the machine had been hacked. My antivirus software was screaming bloody murder, but apparently something got past it, and I got to spend time mopping up the mess.

These are the things that make you shout "motherfucker!" at the monitor.
