Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

MadxMikey is flying high
Default Help me please (just in case that thread is inactive) - I think i have a virus issue

I already posted all this on the Stick thread "viruses, spyware and other nasties", but just in case no one reads that thread anymore i wanted to start a new one.

If that is considered Spam I'm sorry, Mods go ahead and do as you see fit.


Ok I think i have a virus issue.


I was using limewire (it was the latest free version) for the first time in a looong time and i accidently downloaded something i didnt want to download and didnt notice till it was too late. I deleted the file and then removed limewire (only because i didnt need it anymore).

I then started experiencing my problem. My IE would start opening ads to random ads or bing.com sometimes it was even related to what I was already browsing. I then downloaded firefox thinking if i just left IE alone nothing would happen, but then IE started opening on it's own and i noticed that loading time for pages (if they loaded) was extremely slow.

I began searching the internet for information and came up with "vundo" as being my issue. I immeadiatly used symantec's vundo remover, but it said i didnt have vundo so i ran it in safe mode just to be sure. still no "vundo"

so i began searching again and found a lot of things similar to my problem but nothing exactly like it. i tried running IE without add ons, and that made the issue less frequent but did not stop it. I downloaded the free version of AVG and did a scan that found 4 infected files and 1 warning

"C:\Users\Mike\AppData\Roaming\SystemProc\lsass.ex e (4316)";"Virus identified Packed.DelfCrypt";"Reboot is required to finish the action"
"C:\Users\Mike\AppData\Roaming\SystemProc\lsass.ex e";"Virus identified Packed.DelfCrypt";"Moved to Virus Vault"
"C:\Users\Mike\AppData\Roaming\SystemProc\lsass.ex e";"Virus identified Packed.DelfCrypt";"Moved to Virus Vault"
"C:\Users\Mike\AppData\Roaming\SystemProc\lsass.ex e";"Virus identified Packed.DelfCrypt";"Moved to Virus Vault"

"HKU\S-1-5-21-2868092215-1466753397-881608756-1000\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run \\RTHDBPL";"Found registry key with reference to infected file C:\Users\Mike\AppData\Roaming\SystemProc\lsass.exe ";"Moved to Virus Vault"


i removed them as AVG told me to, and then opened IE, AVG then told me i had a trojan which it quarentined and i removed it. I tried opening IE once again, but the problem is STILL HAPPENING.

I am mostly computer Illiterate when it comes to virus removal, which is why i try my hardest not to get them and why i fell like an idiot for downloading that stupid file. Can Someone please help?

AVG is not the most trusted antivirus software after my opinion!I would recomend you to change the software to Avast instead off!I t will never let you download the file in the first place...I know you use p2p software and download the virus that way, but Avast has a p2p shield that stop the file from entering your computer if you by mistake download a virus infested file!Give Avast the chance, and it will clean your pc for you!

First of all Avast is free for home users...After 30 days the demo license key will expire,you can register for a new key which will last 1 year and still 100% free for home users!You must use boot scan to remove this kind of infections.That means Avast will scan before your pc is fully stared up!If you now use Avst 5 the newest one it's easy to do boot scan!Click on the Avast icon in system tray, and open Avast...So click on Boot-Time-Scan...Then click on Areas to scan, and choose all harddisks or if it's only in the system choose the system disk...Then finally click Shedule Now button, your pc will restart and Avast will scan yor hard drive and you can safly remove the infected file!
