Out of the Blue

Today is National Pancake Day, celebrated by IHOP, where they are giving away a complimentary short stack of pancakes to all comers and urging folks to give to charity. Of course if they were really The International House of Pancakes you'd be able to do this all over the world, but in spite of the name, their only locations not in U.S. territories are in Canada and Mexico (perhaps The House of International Pancakes would be more accurate, though HOIP is not as cool as IHOP). This is something I can get behind, as pancakes are always welcome, but I think I'll celebrate by making some over the weekend.

Hey what do you guys use to clean a PC that has something really nasty on it? I usually use Malwarebytes and Spybot but whatever is on this thing is just plain nasty and won't go away. My next step is to wipe it clean but would try something else as a last gasp.
