Don't take any of my comments personally, Thesh. Not downloading any software from an unknown source, is just one of the ways i keep my system clean from any trouble. Some of my basic guidelines to keeping a clean system. And seeing as your new here, i would say you qualify as an unknown source.
So far i have never really had any real problems on my system, due to malware, and i feel it is due, in part, to following these guidelines. If more people did so they would have a lot less trouble, and the people who so freely give their time to help around here could take a well deserved vacation.
But alas the machine keeps churning, and people keep downloading from unknown sources, and keep getting infected with malware, and the hijackthis logs keep pouring in, and so on and so on and......
Hey Paranoid, your absolutely right! I am learning to be more and more paranoid. I wonder who i have to thank for that?
;D I'm almost thinking of changing my name to Paranoid2. Or perhaps Privacynut, i've used that one in the past. Anyway a little paranoia is a good thing in this case IMO.
