Computer issues, BCTS, and viruses

We all have them. Lately I've been getting lag. I usually do a scan about once a month, more if I need it.

Having had a sex starved teen I have had the chance to get lots of experience fixing various problems. After a while I made him fix his various problems, and kept him off my machine. Anyone who has a kid knows how well that works, they usually do what they want to, and deal with the consequences later.

Mine learned quite early I could access the cache through the house network. It saved me a lot of issues, though I don't think he was impressed.

What I'm trying to do here is establish I do know something about the subject. Not as much as I would like, but I have a firm background in computer science.

Lately BCTS has been a bit glitchy. Nothing too serious, but I get the feeling it wasn't updating properly on my computer. I would occasionally get a blue screen (not to be confused with the blue screen of death) with a ghostly head looking down on a message that starts off "Site Off Line". The reason I suspected it was on my end is after a few screen refreshes it would go away.

This morning the site BCTS down hard. I did a boot scan on my computer, and did find a java virus, that was cleaned out. I use Avast free.

So it could be a particularly obnoxious piece of malware. It could also be some instability on BCTS. I don't have an opinion either way, yet.

I'm just curious if anyone else has had problems.
