    Thanks!

    I've learned a bit about forums and I see this is a nice one, good people too!!

    If you would, if your a mod, or DAL, PLEASE take that last comment on dylantheskater out.. every time I see that, I look down in shame, Wondering how I could say such a thing to you guys on this forum :(



    Anyways some may know about Neoseeker, Its my favourite site.... I recently reformated my harddrive again (Gee I do that lots!! :p ) and Came upon a disturbing popup... It comes up every time I log in, and its actually a program, "Powerscan" or something like that.. any ideas? Need a screenshot?

    Hmm....

    If you reformat your Hard Drive with the Windows XP Disk, Does it remove all the viruses? I logged in this morning (2 days AFTER I reformat it...) and I get all the same Virus popups like "virtual bouncer" and "Your PC is infected with a parasite, click here to remove it now!"

    Were you on the internet without a firewall/virus scanner during that time? Studies have shown that all it takes is less than 20min for a PC to be infected.

    do you have more than one partition?

    or more than one drive?

    did you do a clean install Or did you Repair with your old programs & settings?

    also did you read about the powerscan above?

    hope you dont mind all the questions :eek:

    especially if you downloaded ISTBar.

    You need to be careful what you download. Plus get all the critical updates from windows update. Plus a firewall is very important (even tho they take a little patience to setup) There is a good free version here:

    The FREE version of Outpost Firewall

    Sure. This will make your computer run like new. Until you get online and
    the same infections happen all over again. Which might take less than 20
    minutes!

    You will want to install SP2 from a CD or create a "slipstreamed" XP SP2 CD to install before you go online!

    To keep your computer running properly, you must practice "safe hex". In
    addition to a good firewall, you need a good antivirus. And you need
    protection from spyware and other malware. Without ALL these protections
    plus regular visits to Windows Update, you will simply get infected again
    and have to do this all over again.

    Ok can I have some free downloads to some of these?

    I have nothing at all!

    PS: I want GOOD programs, not ones that pop up everytime something loads or something

    If you dont want to "slipstream" SP2 the first thing you need to do is go to windows update & download/ install it.
    If you want some info on "slipstreaming" & you have a CD burner let us know.

    This will provide you with an "ok" firewall. Inbound; not outbound. Any firewall besides SP2 has to be configured. The first time you use it you will have to aprove or reject actions your computer takes. This takes some effort.

    I useSygate Personal Firewall (free) it needs to be configured. I also have all the security that is recommended (above) by jephree and rarely have any problems.
