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.

Default Got a virus, now what to do?

See, it's like this. I ran my Avast scan this morning and it picked up a virus WIN32:CTX, whatever the heck that is. Anyway, their advice was to put it in the box. So I guess I'm just carrying this thing around with me. Ever since I isolated it, my monitor looks like it has hepatitis. I e-mailed Alwil with this and haven't gotten a reply yet. Is there a virus remover out there for this particular species Hrrrmph. And if I run a remover on my computer, can it detect it within it's box?

What a way to start the day. I did scan all of my shared folders and they came out negative. The display on the file said the file was last modified 6/29/05, which is when I set up the computer. But then, why wouldn't it be found until now? If I sound like I'm talking in circles, I am just very frustrated right now.

Any suggestions? Ooops, the screen just cleared up.

See WARNING: Viruses on network you should be aware of! & if Avast isn't doing the full job, get a back up AV program. Cheer up it happens to most people eventually.

Default Thanks LOR

You cheered me up and I'll take the advice about getting another AV program. But, the thing I don't get is can another AV find the one that is presently stored in Avast's "chest."
And, can they get rid of it?

The computer is working all right now, but I feel like I'm carrying around a vial of NG.

Oh, and btw I scanned all of my shared files, and nothing turned up there.

Thanks again.

If you get another AV program that can detect the virus then it will detect it wherever it is & remove it. So remember to keep your SV definitions up to date. I did leave some clues to free ones (AV programs.)

Default It was a pseudo-virus, but more trouble now


After much communication with Avast and AVG, AVG told me that it was a false positive result, so I got rid of Avast and installed the AVG.

But now I'm having another problem, probably not virus-related, but it occurred only after I discarded the virus chest and its contents. I cannot print web pages. I keep getting a scripts error on the page. I cannot fill out a form on the web without geting that message. I couldn't even find the printer on the start programs. I reinstalled the printer, per HP advice, and still no luck. The uninstall information and printer were listed though in the start programs.

Anyway, if this post doesn't belong here, then maybe the moderator could move it to where it should be, I need some help with this.

Thank you all.

Have you tried Housecall?

http://housecall60.trendmicro.com/en...rp.asp?id=scan

It'll detect and pretty much remove anything out there for free. The only time it'll have a problem with virus removal is if the virus/trojan is still operating, then you'll have to find it via Task Manager and shut it down then run the scan again.

Hope thats some help yo yah.

Exclamation AV software to GET

I recommend highly, that you get MS Anti-spyware. It's free on the MS site, and since i started using it, i have had ZERO problems. It catches things and cleans them. Trust me. It works. Get it.
