    Well, everyone I have a computer Virus. I just got this computer, I told my mother not to let my little brother play on it because he downloads weird games from unknown sources. I came home one night and found her on this pc watching a dog doing a girl which made me wish I did not come home. Now I watch porn but I know what sites are safe and which are bugged. Ether way between bother of them I got something and now my pc is tweaking and I hope I can find a way to fix it or I will once again leave the forums.

    So I found this would be a good time to bring this up and talk about everyones past relationships to Viruses.

    I have a powerful anti-virus system installed so if I do come accross a virus it's irradicated fairly quickly.

    What's all that about catching someone watching dirty porn, was your mum watching it...haha!?!

    Now what was that about your mom watching doggy porn?

    I have a power anti-virus hardware system...its call a Macintosh :).

    Anyway, if I were you if you get it clean I would make it so you bother only has a limited account and block him from downloading or installing anything. Unless he is amazing at computers that should be enough to keep him from doing it again. Good luck cleaning up that bestiality mess you got there. Hope you parents didn't think it was you!

    Keep him away from Limewire. Stupid videos on there aren't labeled correctly.

    As for the viruses, I'm pretty good about not geting them. The worst problem that I've ever had is that stupid fucking blaster worm that made your computer reset after a few seconds.

    The best thing to do to get rid of them is to reboot into safe mode and run a virus/adware scan.

    I hate people who are smug about their Macs like this. Guess what? Macs are actually more vunerable to system-directed viruses because Windows has so many bugs that patches and new versions constantly lock out the viruses/worms/trojans and they work to find new holes. Macs aren't attacked nearly as much and it's actually easier to find a hole to eploit.

    Always a winner, that one. I helped my uncle with his computer a while back, and it had every virus and spyware on the list with a tac- rating of four or less. And I says to him: "been watchinig porn again, now, haven't you, haha". Awkward...

    ..I hate Steve- worshippers too. But no, when you have a real permission- level system, and not an optional and improvised one like on windows.. Or actually need to clear specific permissions and elevate the rights before installing a system- component - that takes care of almost every windows- exploit ever made. You're still vulnerable to actually installing something from an unknown source with elevated privileges. But the classic windows problem with a user- level program updating half the system- library - you just don't have that on a unix- based system.

    I.e., most windows "exploits" are there not because it's so popular and so on, but because the system is basically wide open. Up until august last year, the default install had no password as admin, for example. Really clever. So anyone who got your ip- address could sniff your computer and log in with administration privileges on a standard install. And the fix they put in was to make it illegal to log in as administrator without a password. Awesome. So you still have the opportunity to access the entire array of logon- services from any address on any of the many service- ports for upnp. But you have to actually hack the password this time. Which makes it actually safer to not have a password, so you can't log in except on system boot. Brilliant.

    The entire "services" system as well - it can communicate both externally and internally, and doesn't see any difference between external and internal requests (say, a portscan and a user- program - what's the difference?) and must be open internally for anything to function on your computer - all of that just begs to be broken into by every script- kiddie with ten minutes spare time. For example, if you take a fresh windows boot and put it directly on the internet (and not behind a home router, etc), you /will/ get some form of network worm on your computer instantly. It's become slightly better after they've included the "security" centre, but it really is that bad. The only thing that keeps people relatively safe is that they're not interesting enough to be hacked individually. So keep the pictures of your girlfriend petting a goat off the my documents folder, for example.

    Yes my mom is F'n sick. She was watching something or Barnyard something. It is nasty. Lol, I think I fixed it. SO I am pretty sure I am all good now. Good think I went to a few month long course on how to get rid of viruses. I think I am going to have to limit my mom and brothers accounts and install a porn blocker for my mom rofl.

    Not really because first off, almost no one bothers to create viruses for macs because over 90% of comp population is PC

    and second since most smart mac users use Firefox or even have an anti-virus system (for those who think "just in case") most viruses if any that are directed at macs are already blocked out. So most hackers figure it's a moot point. A mac is pretty well protected.

    I'm not saying it's impossible, but it's far more unlikely.


    ...I am a Mac user but I was originally PC and still use one.
