Dear Blue,

When experimenting with potentially viral/malicious software, a good alternative to test it with is a virtual machine!

Another helpful tip from your friendly internet hero fyrestorm.

Words of Wisdom to live by. I also agree with brother19 who says that as soon as he saw that thing pop up, he yanked the power cable out of his system. It's a bit drastic, but if you're lucky it'll prevent the damn thing from installing in the first place. (since usually they do need you to CLICK something before they get the rights to do so. It's just that their Yes/No/X buttons all have the same run/install script behind it.)
