Someone mispells google, goggle and it opens up popups and virus' etc. Some antivirus attemps to remove them but winlogon.exe is somehow terminated resulting in a bsod.

edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winlogon tells ya what it does, I've heard terminating it is lethal.

This video isn't even real.

I tried visiting the site "goggle.com", and all that happens is a site loads with one single popup window (which is successfully blocked by Opera anyway). Nothing like what the video shows really happens at all!

This has got nothing to do with Windows anyway (as I said before). If there is a rogue site that opens a load of popup windows (which as we've already established it doesn't really do anyway) then it will behave in exactly the same way in the same browser on any platform!

Oh, I know it isnt real, and I'm not sure if things like that can really happen. All I use is windows and that never happens to me. 1) I use firefox 2)Google is my homepage :P
