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.

McAffee sucks. Get a free alternative that is good such as Avast, AntiVir, ClamWin or AVG.

I can't disrecommend Norton and McAffee enough, use a free alternative ASAP!

The links below will take you to a couple of very good free AV programs highly rated by the experts. I have found AVG to be better than Avast but both are very good.

http://free.grisoft.com/*******.php

http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html

The virus I believe you got can hide in allot of places on your computer. Go to the link below and post a Hijack This log there Norbie will be able to tell you if you have gotten rid of it. Just follow the instructions on the web page.

http://www.norbiesworld.co.uk/Forums...ic/t=1295.html

The reason they called you stupid is because of your refusal to believe that LimeWire did not give you the virus. Yo got the virus from DL and opening files that contained a virus or you already had it. Like I said before literally millions of people use LimeWire and do not get a virus from it. Do you really think LimeWire would be the most popular P2P software out there if it was a virus and was causing problems with peoples computers.

You put way too much faith in your friend who doesn't know his head from a hole in the ground if he thought LimeWire was a virus or caused a virus. The link below will help educate you about viruses on the network I would suggest you read it.

In the future you should probably do a Little research before making post and then defending them. Your post is what made you look stupid. When I told you it wasn't LimeWire that caused the virus you probably should have done a little research on the Internet instead of blindly believing your friend. That also made you look stupid or gullible hopefully you have learned something from this if you have then you are not stupid. If you haven't then you are stupid.

Default I can disrecommend Norton

I used it for months, and it caused me nothing but trouble. It is the biggest resource hog on the market today (I think) + plus it didn't pick up everything it should

Has anyone tried Trendmicro PC-Cillin. I'm thinking about trying it, since Panda (allthough a good antivirusprogram) is almost as big a resource hog as Norton. But I would like to know what other people say about it first. I have tried looking on the net for feedback, and have also tried writing them about it asking very specific questions and getting non-specific answers back. Allthough support answered fairly fast which is a big + in my book

P.S. DKSK The reason I called you stupid was because every time your name was associated with a thread it was inconstructive. If you wise up and post a bit nicer + more relevant + specific you will get a lot of help here, while if you continue like you have done so far you will only have more people calling you stupid

P.P.S. Antivirus doesn't have to be expensive to be good. And expensive most definently doesn't mean good

Sleepless... honestly... all the big-name Anti-Virus software suck. Get AVG (VERY light weight and is the top recommendation on every guru's list of PC apps to have.) or AVAST... I havent tested this one out, but it seems pretty credible.

Oh, and both are free.............which i should note that 95% of the best software out there are either free or open source. I have honestly never, in the past 4 years, had to spend a dime on commercial software. (Xcept for biz software that I am required to have for my job.) I can always get the equivalent or better open source or free version.

You mean heuristic analysis? In AVG it does. I dont know about AVAST, but I image it does too. You can also disable heurstic analysis if you wish... just check it out, im not here to sell it to you.

oops. you have to consider that it's 2.40 am here, so some spelling errors may occur.

When I had it disabled and did a online scan it picked a lot of stuff up that Panda didn't

After I enabled it every scan has been clean

So it's a must for me. If I remember correctly PC-Cillin has it too and is very cheap

edit : I stand corrected

One thing I do like about avast it will run in tandem with allot of other antiviruses right now I am testing Windows one care and running Avast in tandem with it. And yes it does have heuristic analysis. But I still prefer AVG while they both have never failed to pick up any viruses I have tested them with AVG has been able to repair more of the files than Avast.
