To which you received the following reply:
My bro got this DVD that has a collection of audio mixing software. We ran it on my anti virus (as I always do) and this popped up.
Potentially harmful program hacktool.crack (next column)
how do I avert the virus before installing the software?
Which if you had read the rules of our forums, inked to here: You would have been aware of two things we do not discuss or allow to be discussed. Those being bypassing security and copyright. The rule is quote, as follows "No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences."
Given the name of the file, virtual.dj.4.2rl-patch.exe, it seems to me that it's a "crack" designed to circumvent the copy protection on the program.
I would recommend NOT using the DVD or the file at all.
To which you reply
DJ programs are expensive
Which I read means, you still plan to use pirated software regardless of the consequences and still wish to discuss a potential piracy act. In direct violation of the forum rules. Which DChew brought out his comment that you took offense to, with your reply below.
Anyway around it?
So my reply to all of the foregoing, is the way you worded your comments alludes to you wanting to continue with the discussion. When it was brought up that it appears you have a hacked piece of software. Yet you ask "Anyway around it?", which to me means you have ignored all the comments and still wish to pursue copyright infringement which we do not allow. It was not the issue of whether you had been infected or not that was being brought to your attention. However it appears you missed that point by pursuing the way to negate the virus and use pirated software. Or as you stated "I was merely trying to test the software, at its full ability."
Wooh guys, slow down! First up, I didn't say I got infected, I was merely asking about the "virus". I scanned the DVD and it came up. Secondly, the whole stealing was a bit overboard. So Da Chew, cool it. I ain't trying to steal or anything of that sort. I was merely trying to test the software, at its full ability. Once again, i was NOT infected with that virus.
The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
