Well, my computer recently started to mess up. I showed my dad and he said it might have a virus. He took it to his work (he's a professor at the University of Houston) to his friend at the technology department at U of H. He emailed my dad, saying that it had Trojan viruses, and said the only way to have it "cleaned" is to delete EVERYTHING and reinstall the original software. Delete EVERYTHING . So, Pit, have you ever had a computer virus?


Oh, if any of you are wondering, I'm using my brother and sister's computer.

I had a trojan once, but I got rid of it.

But once you get the free Jennifer Aniston porn, it's worth it.

I've never had one on this machine that wasn't immediately caught by my AV's active host.

Probably had them on old family machines though.

You have to be completely retarded to download a virus.

Viruses are like the internet's version of natural selection.

let that be a lesson to you.
from now on always install windows on a separate partition. It's not 100% safe but your chances of keeping your stuff is much higher.

well, since you put "fap/rape/i cum blood/seachbar" as a poll option, this poll is now null, due to the fact that the pit is home of fappers, rapists, blood cummers, and searchbar recommenders.

You had to put a penis option.......

The results are now nulled due to this being the pit.... The home of penis watch wearers.

I got the Antispyware 2008 from clicking the wrong ad (muscle spasm FTMFL) And it just went straight through S&D.

Just so you know BTW, S&D sucks now. Hardly protects against anything.

NO I haven't. My friend got the on on MSN, the one that says its a 'picture' and really its not.

Word to the wise, when it tell you its a picture but its actually a binary file, its probably not good news guys.

If MACs can't get viruses, why is there anti-virus software for macs?

Because there are about 6 viruses out there for macs, and anyone with an old OS doesn't have built in protection against those particular viruses. Not that they ever show up.

Nope, gotta love my mac. When I multi task with ProTools running, it crashes more than helen keller driving on the freeway, but I never get viruses.

Weird, my Dad was just telling me about Ubuntu the other day.


We tried installing it, but fails at %51... I would really like to try it, is it any good?

Yeah couple weeks ago my friends were clicking some weird stuff in the darker corners of the interwebz... 15 viruses. Norton Antivirus took care of em tho. The other computer had like 60 but they are all quarantined now so its all good
#39
i get them all the time. it's from all of the music and my internet source being connected 24/7. i've never had one that crashed the computer, although one almost did. we had to continiously run AVG for 3 days, and then the virus blocked AVG's functions so we had to run a different virus program, but finally we won.

Viruses don't magically come through your internet when you aren't doing anything. You have to download something to get them.
