Windows 7: just curios but are these viruses related?

just curios but are these viruses related?

Hey guys

I while ago i got i nasty virus (but if you think about it aren't they all)that went and hid everything.

Luckily i got that fixed.

I keep a photographic log of all viruses that i get and i was wondering are these related?

Im pretty sure that malwarebytes photo and spybot photo are related but i was curious about the pdf file that avg came up with.

I only scanned and found this a few days ago.

Avg also found some java's that shouldn't be there.

What do you guys think.

I was also wondering if the pdf was just a simple extraction file like a zip for the virus because the virus i got was adobe related

The reason i ask is evry time i update my scanner and do another scan it finds stuff.

Also are there setting in adobe to set to make things a little more secure.

I have been thinking about getting noscript for fire fox for security reasons

BSOD Apparent related to IPOD Touch and/or related services
My PC has recently started erratic BSOD crashes after a year of bliss. I installed UBUNTU as second boot option and it seems to work normally. Would rather not just give up on Windows 7 - particularly as this is x64 version and UBUNTU is only x86 version; I also have some windows-only software...
