Uplag is a physiological condition which results from an upgrade of an electronic device, software, or some other technology, that is very disruptive to the upgrader's personal or professional life. Similar to jet lag, symptoms include sleeplessness, fatigue, exhaustion, and general confusion. The condition of uplag may last several days until the upgrader adjusts to the new technology.
Dude's got serious uplag ever since he upgraded to a new Android phone yesterday. He missed our morning project status meeting, and I found him in the men's room, curled up in the fetal position with his Android, rocking back and forth and moaning, "Only fifteen more apps to reinstall."
A rogue anti-spyware "developed" to "clean" and "destroy" false computer problems, to just create ones so you give them money and that's how the scam goes.
The website is mycleanpc(dot)com, go on the site and you computer is done for. It's just like "Antivirus 2009" or "NavaShield" in a new package ready to fuck up your computer even more than the other ones. It is acually a trojan horse in disguise called WIN32: MSAntivirus (search it up on the Microsoft Security Portal) Go get a real anti-virus like SUPERAntiSpyware, MalwareBytes or AVG Internet Security 2011
Guy 1: "Hey I just saw an ad on TV about a way to take all the spyware off my comp it's called MyCleanPc"
Guy 2: "I don't think that's a real program"
*2 Hours Later*
Guy 1: "WTF?! My computer's telling me to buy it to fix the problems!"
Guy 2: "You had NO problems to begin with! It's fake!"
Guy 1: "Great time to reinstall Windows again since SpySheriff destroyed it"
Guy 2: "Idiot!"

Fred: Hey man, did you ever play that Deus Ex game? It was totally awesome.
Bill: Oh yeah, I loved that game! I should install it on my new PC.
Fred: Aw man, now I wanna play it!
Bill: That's the Deus Ex effect for you, buddy.
