Yeah. Me too. I got hit with a Windows POS**t last night on my iMac  
through Safari. That damn thing that opens a window and "checks your  
PC for viruses and worms" then goes about testing your hard drive and  
announces that your software and hard drive are seriously infected  
Then it won't let you get out of it, other than by quiting Safari.  
Even then, this morning, when I awakened my iMac from it's sleep, it  
crashed with the transparent veil of kernel sickness, for the first  
time in 14 months. (That's how long Mac users have to play before  
something bad happens, folks). I sent a report to Apple.

Microsoft haters & worshippers! Stay outta my stuff!

There is no off position to the genius switch.
Genius can, however, be observed as insanity.
