      Jackson, a hillbilly is an American derogatory slang term for a country person who's so backward they have to come down out of the hills to get to civilization.
      Figuratively-speaking as a guy from rural Alabama. And no, I don't live in the hills.
      I live on a very tiny mountain.

    Your homepage & search have been taken over by Conduit. This program is malware. If I cant get rid of it completely & Permanently using the built in windows remove programs - it is MALWARE!

A truly malicious virus or bot is a secretive little thing that hides effectively and will give no indication it is even there, stealing information or spamming.
