Also, what pest control tools do you use?
As i was searching through my comp yesterday to delete some unneeded programs, i came accross four folders that i don't recognize
Can anyone tell me what they are and if they're bad?
How more blunt can I be?
Before you think I'm being mean, read http://news.com.com/2100-1023-873181.html and consider that some VERY EVIL PEOPLE have duped you into installing this software.
What's worse is that today's PARASITES (aka SPYWARE) is now bilking people of their money. You installed a known destroyer of systems and may read this and either response with:
1. They're nuts (people here).
2. OMG! And begin curing the machine.
i read the first bit (the second paragraph)
The company plans to wake up the millions of computers that have installed its software in as soon as four weeks. It plans to use the machines--with their owners' permission--to host and distribute other companies' content, such as advertising or music. Alternatively, it might borrow people's unused processing power to help with other companies' complicated computing tasks.
One part says "The company plans to wake up the millions of computers that have installed its software in as soon as four weeks", the date of the article is April 2002.
Another part says: "It plans to use the machines--with their owners' permission--to host and distribute other companies' content", note as it says WITH THEIR OWNERS PERMISSION.
2/3s' of the systems I repair involve spy-ware. People are prey to themself, answering the call for something free, newer, better, faster. Those in the know get a little touchy when people fall into the traps set by these individuals offering free, newer, better, faster.
Touchy because the forums are full of people attempting regain controll of their computers. Over and over again the cries for help echo .... but no one listens or learns. I know... had my backside chewed out a few times from removing ad supported applications that could not be lived with-out or a system returned re-infected. Hard not to get touchy ......
Looked at a free codec for DVD viewing -> EULA ->
one paragraph for the application, two pages for the spy-ware
(My Web Search)(catch this one and good luck)
Always, ALWAYS read the EULA you might just be suprised what you find.
Well thats my vent
Thanks for listening
