Speaking of Viruses...

This is an interseting article from Wired on the Slammer Virus that brought the Internet to a halt.

I remember a few months ago I was surfing the web and all of a sudden even Google turned up a DNS error - I figured it was a local problem with my ISP, but it may have been this virus.

Interesting article but it's painful when someone attempts to describe something technical in non-technical terms -- "licks the UDP stamp"?????

DNS error from Google means nothing. I get DNS error from every site I visit approx once every 2 hours (lasting for 2 minutes). This has been consistent for the 3 years, spanning three ISPs five OS reinstalls three methods of connecting to the internet and god knows how many service packs and quitting/End Task of unnecessary programs.

The only constant is Windows 2000. I don't think it is a virus. If you find out what's up, PLEASE let me know :(
