Can I just say one thing (ok two or more):: 1. thank GOD for forums like this to help people like me to fix comp problems. 2. Can any of us BE more angry about the viruses out there? I came to this site to get help fixing VUNDO (new 4 letter word for 2005), and it's amazing how many people on here have the same thing as me. :thumbsup: ... I like what my brother says = string up all the virus writers, and kneecap them.. ugh!!!!!!

The best defence against malware attacks is knowledge about how to prevent them using a layered security approach, and exercising a lot of care about what you download. Spending a few hours reading some of the excellent Tutorials about computer security will go a long way in preventing future problems.

John =

Totally agree.. I was playing last night with the security settings/levels, etc,, but could not seem to find a happy medium to allow Everquest traffic, but still block malicious stuff.. We usually keep the firewall on, at the highest level - this has seemed to work beautifully for the past month... as long as we aren't playing EQ - once we get onto EQ, it seems the only way to allow EQ traffic is to completely turn off the firewall - thus getting exposed to everything. Trying to tweak the firewall only succeeded in getting warning popups that this program, that program, needed to be allowed or not... It was frustrating, and didn't allow EQ logon. Once I reset everything to the default, and prior settings, getting online was no bother, but getting onto EQ was impossible... The instructions EQ has on their support website leave a LOT to be desired, in terms of ease of use - they just don't make sense... Anyone out there have any ideas? - really the only thing that is difficult is trying to figure this out (other than fixing the vundo we got, as a result of turning off the firewall.. could strangle the hubby for THAT one...)

Not everybody reads the introductions.
I would suggest you post this problem in the Games forum.
Someone else may have had the same problem, or has a solution as to how to fix it.
You would be more likely to find the answer to your problem, there.
