First of all I understand that there are many out here needing help. I can see from the amount of posts. I have a post out there that was started either June 15 or 16 and no one but me has responded. One post tells us to bump if it has bee longer than 48 hours. Then when we do, we get another post that says, don't bump up your post. It is very confusing.

My main complaint is the longer I go without getting this fixed, the more damage it does. I know that you are all intellegent people and are excellent at fixing things like this. I really need to get my computer fixed. It is my livelyhood. I earn money from my computer. I am a graphic designer and I am unable to do anything until I get this fixed. I am hoping someone can answer my post. I posted over in malware removal. Any help would be greatful. I don't mean to complain just wondering why no one has responded. Thanks again for any and all help.

I get the same response it seems whenever I post a problem. I get very frustrated when my posts seem to be ignored and yet other posts around me get answered even though I have posted 'BEFORE' them. It is very disheartening. Why are my posts always ignored? They can sit there forever and no one has said a word. I like using this forum because I like to use the program Spybot Search & Destroy and you guys seem to be the experts on it. Things are happening to my machine that I know there is something not right and I come here for help from the experts and no one seems to care. Are my spyware issues less important than others here?

2qt4u.

I looked at your last log posted and you indicated that the people at lavasoft fixed you up.

Are you still looking for assistance or just venting that you were inadvertently overlooked? At any one time this board has anywhere between 300 to 500 people crying out for help and as been said before, there are few volunteers.

I would add that your IE is severly outdated and that you need to visit windows updates. Otherwise you will probably be quickly reinfected.

latest critical updates .

Yes they did I'm happy to say. I was not talking about that post. I was referring to others I have posted before, mainly on the old board. I have only posted here on the new one once I believe. I understand they are busy. It just seems that whenever I posted here for help no one cared enough to help me but yet when I crossover to lavasoft they seem to jump on my problem right away. I really don't think they are 'less' busy over there. Maybe they have more helpers or whatever I don't know. And yes, maybe I am venting a little because it just seems like I get ignored. I am a nice person, I'm not rude to anyone. I just don't understand.

It is back to ie6 as of yesterday. Because of a virus (or spyware of some sort) I had about a month ago somehow my ie6 turned into ie5 all by itself. It was really weird but I couldn't update windows or anything or reinstall ie6. It's fixed now though. Kinda wondering if whatever I had and got rid of through this last spyware incident may have had something to do with it changing to ie5.


Edit: Not looking for assistance. Crapware is out of my machine once again. :D For how long is another issue! :weee:

Venting is good sometimes hehe.

As you are aware, there are multtiple reasons why your post may be missed or passed over. Volume, time zones, # helpers, their availability and abilities etc. I don't think that "no one cared" is valid.

I think that, because you brought the oversight to the forefront is why you got my attention. Also there are numerous helpers here at SWI, that help at the other boards as well.

Nevertheless, you had been overlooked. I'm glad you found a way to get you system fixed up. Your IE problem is weird, haven't heard that one before. Keep an eye out to see if happens again. You do not want to be running IE5.

Did you know that you can order a free update disk from MS that covers patches up till february2004. Microsoft says it can take 2-4 weeks. May work better than an update if it reoccurs

cheers

Thanks pfofit. Will look into the cd thing.

Ya, was weird. Here is my post about what happened if you're interested. I have no idea how IE6 turned into IE5 but maybe you can figure it out by reading this.
