I first contacted Bleeping computer on 10/31 very late. I have been receiving messages from Xblock about my registration on November 1st. Is XBlock one of the areas that you sent me to when I first started searching for my problem

I went through all of your post. None of the links provided to you would lead to xblock

Are they a legitimate group or is it possinbe that they put the backdoor trojan into my computer. Go to the web site. It does not look very proffesional.

I started to receive messages from them shortly after I made contact with BleepingComputer.com. If they are legit it is possibe that I had looked into them before I found Bleeping... but I have no recolection of having done so.

It is possibe that they are going and reading posts on Bleeping..... and contacting people. I moderated the AOL AV site for several years and I know all too well the value of working with only one help site. at a time.

It is very possible that around the same time that your first contacted BC you went to some other site that caused them to contact you or it is just a coincidence.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
