Today i see a popup in my task bar asking about some app and skype and i accidentally click the program next to skype and easybitsgo.exe starts to launch. WTF! I have a VIRUS!
Or so i thought anyway. I immediately hit google and find this Skype Forum Thread where everyone else is wondering what the hell is going on. Someone in the thread gave me instructions to disable this from happening again.
What I did was on skype, go under tools-options-advanced and uncheck “automatically stop extras” also click on the “manage other connections to skype” link on the bottom and remove Easybitsgames. I removed the program and it hasn’t shown up since.
So whos bright idea was this? Lets take a product that people like and do some sneaky bullshit that will make them think they have a virus and once they figure out whats going on they will become angry and post about it on forums and their blog. Nice move morons. So now what? We have to play this disable game every few weeks like Facebook?
Time to look for alternatives for making calls over the internet i guess. I really don’t understand why they would do this unless MS is intentionally trying to spend all their money on worthless products.
I just tried to respond to the skype forum and it posted under someone elses screen name. WTF is going on over there?
