Just to say a few words about my experiences and see where it goes.
Don't these computer geeks have anything better to do than try to hack the general public private sector?
Guess there is no such thing as privacy anymore, especially when you put across the internet.
Guess you have to put up with the bad to have the use of such a nice information tool, such as WWW.
Personally, I just hate it when I have to spend so much time getting rid of viruses, malware, and trojans.
My best suggestion would be not to store any information on your personal computer that you do not mind someone else having access to.
That is sad to say, but most true. This applies to email transmissions as well.
I have been using the web for years, but only recently started using downloads from quesstionable sites.
Now I find my computer has been hacked, all my email account stolen and gone, and plenty of viruses to go around.
Worst part about it, some of it seems to always return. So I am not sure if I never got rid of it or if it is just on some of the sites I frequent.
I actually watched a file download attach itself to another download, was really freaky. Worst of all, the virus came from a school.
Guess the schools can not monitor what goes out on thier sites. Too bad, was a really nice small program, never had to install it to get the virus download.
I am not going to pretend I know alot about viruses and such, just wish there was some software that could be developed to rid your computer of them.
By that statement, I mean, automatically. Seems you have to run several programs and each one gets rid of some, but never all glitches.
Of course I am on this site hoping to learn more about other peoples experiences, as I am sure it will be most helpful in the near future.
Guess that old saying is true, 'can not get something for nothing', there is always a price to pay when you try to get something for free.
Not to say that all freeware is not good, there are many good applications out there. I use many of them. Just wish the hackers could stay away from them.
The internet is a wonderful tool, able to learn and find unlimited amounts of information. And thank Bill Gates form making it a bit easier. Now we need another pioneer that can develop a software to help the general public rid itself of these menacing hacks, they would become rich-ha ha. :thumbsup:

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials.
There's a lot of very useful information, in there.
