No wonder why it was impossible to remove. My Windows 2000 machine is most probably infected and will probably stay infected until I just reload windows from scratch. Maybe even that won't get rid of the adware.
When the state of the art robotics is advanced enough for robots to automaously go and create factories for making more robots....
Then the only limiting factors are
a - raw materials
b - energy
Both of which are virtually unlimited in space, i.e. the moon, astroids.
No comment needed on the implications of an unlimited and cheap work force.
Secondary question - how many humans are needed (on Earth or off) to insure the species and for progress, once working becomes obsolete?
No amount of careful planning will ever replace dumb luck.
