Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

Smile Computers infected with virus

Hello! everyone,

We are computer classroom administrators. When PCs are infected with virus, it is really troublesome to manage them.

So do you have a good solution to solve it? Thanks in advance.

Moved from BearShare section

It very much depends what the computers are being used for. Whether it's preschool level or college level. Also makes me wonder why you would get the job, if your solution to computer security is coming to Gnutellaforums to ask for advice, first post even.

Is this one of the smart spam schemes, when you wait for some reply.. any reply. and then magically some robot will post the most brilliant greatest solution to you problem?

If not then feel free to elaborate. Listing operating system used would be the first thing.

Just for college level. The reason why i want to solve the problem is we need to make our management more easily.

The Operating System is Windows series.

Windows XP or Vista or 7?

How many computers?

Single or multiple servers? Is the server Windows as well?

What kind of security is lacking. Are you planning to block e.g. peer-to-peer applications, youtube, Google etc.

Without knowing a lot more about your setup, all people can do is guess.

I still have trouble with why you would even ask here. Wouldn't it be better on an IT-security/networking site?

Default Computer Protection

Hi Sleepless (& Mirusmith)

When I first saw Mirusmith's post I thought that there was something dodgy about it, like you, I thought that if he was genuine then why would he not seek advice from a more reliable source.

That said, if he his genuine then I would advise him to check out Sandboxie, which is protective software that stops all harmful software establishing itself on your PC.

Please take a look at my posts here:

Introducing Sandboxie

Also, I believe that the "paid for" version, once installed properly, will prevent any students from downloading harmful software onto any PC with Sandboxie installed on it.

Should Mirusmith have any non-technical questions about Sandboxie I, as a user, will be more than willing to answer them.

Cheesy The problem has been solved

Dear all,

Thank you all for answering the question. I have solved the problem. We have used a kind of recovery card *.

As a user, i want to say it is a good product for manage and protect computers in computer classrooms.

* Be careful - advertising a certain brand of card can be seen as spamming. Especially since your email address includes the name of the company associated with that card
Spamming will not be tolerated.

Default Recovery Card?

Dear Mirusmith

What is a Recovery Card?

Although a "recovery card", rather than a full blown back-up, sounds like a good idea I can't help but wonder how much data is actually recovered, i.e is it just a snapshot of of the OS and applications?

And are "recovery cards" available to the domestic computer user?

Awaiting your answers.


UK Bob

Talking

Dear Bob,

It is a kind of software that protects your computer. You can back up your OS and software. When your computer infects with virus, you only need to reboot the PC, it will go to the normal state.

When you deploy the software application enviroment, you just install the OS and software on the management side. And then you can send them to the other client side by "Add Clone". The speed is very fast.

It has many other functions. As a user, i would like to recommend it to you. It is really a good maintenance tool for PC.

Why am I not surprised

Is this the way spammers do this now?

I won't bother waiting for the next thread or edited post to get your company's name into it. Bye bye now.
