Re: Do you get a lot of these attacks

Hey itsdigger,

I was attacked by it last month and believe me it corrupted my complete hardware. So was just educated people about it as I has come to know quite a lot after the attack. Might help someone.

I have never encounter DDOS but...

I am a true believer in protection. There are just too much garbage and some just mean idiot out there. Personally I use AVG and I hope it will protect me on DDOS also. Have you heard of KNCTR? Suppose to legit but they are still a pain in the behind. I did not have any protection software install at the time and somehow it got in my computer. I had a really rough time getting rid of it.

I just got KNCTR with Classic Shell for Win 10 & uninstalled

When I downloaded and installed Classic Shell for Windows 10, I thought from the author's site, I got KNCTR and 2-3 other undesired things installed. When I went to uninstall, I got messages that it couldn't be uninstalled because it was active & running. Sooo I started Task manager, listed running tasks & found it. Then I right-clicked it and ended the running task. After that the Programs and Features applet of the Control Panel was able to successfully uninstall. That was a pain in the posterior, but it got rid of it.
Good luck.

Never heard of it

I had a thing years ago from (outfox tv ? ) that was installed somehow that gave me some grief .
Other than that I've never had a problem . Actually I think I might have got it from some Download dot com doucheware.

Maybe AdBlock Plus is doing it's job ?

Ok so that's where I got it also.

I hear Robert mention it often so my curiosity got to me so I download and installed it. Seeing what they did, there's no way they'll get my business.

From the co-founder of Ninite.

I asked about the name and they replied Hi,

It's called Classic Start because it's a stripped-down installation that only includes the start menu component. It's intended for people using Windows 8 who want the start menu back. Classic Shell itself is not on Ninite.

Please let me know if you have more questions or need anything else. Thanks!

If I remember correctly I don't think I got it from ninite. I'll know better next time.

DDoS Protection is Necessary

DDoS attacks are getting more and more complex daily and hackers are using them more to steal information and crash sites. DDoS attacks basically work by sending so much traffic to a network server that it exceeds the bandwidth load that it has been designed for. This means that it is unable to process the queries and simply starts shutting itself down and/or becomes unresponsive. This leads to total open vulnerability and anyone with layman knowledge about cyber security can dive into private resources of that website, stealing information and causing mayhem.

To avoid this issue you can issue DDoS protection according to our budget and requirement. Even, I have faced this issue with one of my website and after that I came to know all about DDoS protection.

However, I am using DDoS proctection from Cloudcom on a trail period and would like to know which DDoS protection you guys have used and how was your expereience.

Odd post, spam?

I looked into this and they provide VPS and such. No Windows protection.

Must be a spam post?

I see nothing for Windows 10 there.

Locking this thread as it appears to be getting spammed.

Website DDoS Protection

Also, would like to let you know that I was talking about DDoS proctection....and nothing specific like Windows.

However, I used DDoS for website and not for windows.....I am here to share my experience and knowledge and gain others experience.

However, are you using any DDoS protection for windows..? As I have never used it and would like to know from you about it.
