Don’t take it personally, it’s nothing to do with Orkut and it’s nothing to do with anyone banning you from using Orkut. No, you got a worm. More specifically, you picked up a parasitic program (w32.USB) most likely from a USB drive inserted into your PC. It may throw up error messages with different text, including: “I DNT HATE MOZILLA BUT USE IE OR ELSE…” and “USE INTERNET EXPLORER U DOPE”.

thoughts.com has the quick fix, but to have caught this worm you mustn’t have had any antivirus or security software running because most of the big name AV programs have trapped this worm for months now. Check out AVG free, Avira Antivir, and Threatfire for basic protection. Zonealarm security suite or firewall and make sure your router is locked down and acting as a decent hardware firewall.
