Adware/Malware/Virus/etc/etc/etc


Recommended Posts

Over here I run XP(SP2), fully patched, I would be on SP3, but my sound card drivers don't get along with it.

 

Firewall: Hardware Firewall built into router.

Anti-Spyware:Microsoft Defender

Anti-Vir:Beta Testing McAfee ATM, otherwise I'd be running AVG 8.

Browser, FF3

 

I don't visit 'warez' sites. If I do want to grab some MP3s or a video I use Bittorrent.

 

I don't worry at all about cookies.

 

Up until now I have never had anything nasty on my machine, but others who I have set up with very similar configurations have.

 

I suspect that like Colin, those others were infected by their kids.

 

Installing toolbars is a bad move. I only have one and that is the Google TB for FF.

 

Downloading Screensavers is risky, I don't download screen savers. Unless you have a CRT monitor, or use a plasma telly (why anyone

would let one of these through their front door escapes me, but that's another story) as your display you don't need a screen saver. If you really feel you need to use a screen saver then use the built in Blank one.

 

I avoid porn sites. To me porn is for spotty adolescents or sad old gits with no memories, no imagination or both. Watching some fat old geezer trying to squeeze a semi up the anal sphincter of some thick blonde whose only line is 'Oh Yes!' is not my idea of entertainment.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

I've got a huge back catalogue of live porn stored away in my grey matter that I can retreive quicker than you can click your right mouse button. Apart from maybe one episode where me and one of my shipmates 'shared' a Taiwanese hooker in Kaohsiung one night I have the lead role in all of it.

I hope you were pitching and not catching Cory... :lol:

 

Seriously though, you guys are probably correct in that most unwanted bugs are from children and unwarranted clicks for free stuff.

Must have been pitching, don't remember catching anything that time ;). Happy days, sitting alongside in Taiwan for 6 weeks in the monsoon season, waiting for dry weather so that we could discharge the soya beans we had loaded in the Mississippi Delta.

Them too, and the little pop ups and adds inviting you to have a free Anti-Spyware scan. Edited by corydoras
