  1. Hello there :)

    Im Vikki, im 16, computers are my hobby, and the internet

    Got my laptop, win XP, the usual.

    I know how to work it, i feel that i could probably help people on this forum with spyware troubles

    and because it seems to be the cool thing to do, here is my hijackthis file ;)

    what do you think, is my computer diseased? :)

    It look OK.

    One thing to send shivers down my spine is Messenger Plus though. They have a nasty spyware history and even though they have supposedly cleaned up their act I still consider it "fishyware"

    well obviously i said no to the spyware, and ms's antispyware picked up on it and basically told me to 'watch out' :p Sypbot and Adware make allowances for it though.

    ive had no problems with it, and the guy who made it is respectable, so, im okay with that.

    Let's find out how good you are:
    MsgPlus.exe
    winampa.exe
    flashget.exe

    There's nothing 'cool' about submitting a log just for fun.

    flashgets popups are so annoying, but i havent got around to uninstalling it yet, i used it to download a 500mb file that needed 50 retrys...

    winampa.exe is spyware or something - even though i admit i didnt know that until i read the sticky about it somewhere :p

    msgplus has bundled toolbar, but obv i said no - even though people continue to mistrust it. the maker, patchou, has tried to ensure that people are well aware of its additional software, but still *****s install it then complain to me

    if msgplus still has spyware, then ive saw none of it, so im happy.

    and the cool bit - i was joking.
