    Default I got a Virus!!! While getting album art from iTunes

    Yup, that is right my laptop got a damn virus while trying to get album art for my mp3s and I lost all my settings! I had to do a clean install of everything. Thats good that I had backed up my music 2 days before. Anybody know an easy way to get the art with out connecting my laptop to the internet?

    1. Putting all my music on my ipod then going to itunes on my desktop and getting album art that way? Then dumping all the music back on my laptop via iPod ripper!

    Suck!

    Macs do own. <3 my MBP

    IMO get one of the new Macbooks as they are so fucking awesome, and would be dope for gigging... maybe sell a kidney to buy one ;P

    The iTunes suggestions sounds OK...
    Also get a decent Antivirus... perhaps Kaspersky.

    Hmmm I would love to get a new MBP - I was really stupid of selling mine with only 4 months of use. :'( Anyone wants to buy a set of B&W CM Serie speakers?

    The thing is you shouldnt be running anti-virus software on your music install, you can connect to the net - just be weary of what sites you visit.

    Its possible you had an undetected trojan that decided to update itself when you plugged it into the net before it unleashed hell on the computer.

    Just turning on your internet and opening itunes isnt enough to get a virus in itself - unless of course apple infected your computer

    Hi there,

    You do not need to install any antivirus, you can scan online with Kaspersky:

    http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner

    then click on Online Scanner. Obviously, it requires Java, so that might be a downturn, but still you wont be installing a whole suite of software.

    This is what I am thinking too.

    If iTunes indeed is to blame, you'd better grind your axes and ask them for a suitable solution!
