I am damn sure it is not a virus :fmad:
Why is it that wherever I go on the internet, that Virus scares that are to do with me invariably follow?? Is it that I am trusted less than Osama Bin Laden, is it because someone who knows a little bit about computers scares the illiterate people. Whatever it is I am sick of it! This is the second time on these forums since they started that someone has mentioned a virus in regards to something I did, both times I can assure you i was very much an innocent party. I have run that executable file on my own computer, would I do that if it was a virus, would I have posted it for everyone if it was a virus? I think not, please give me a little more credibility than that. An executable file does not mean a virus, all it means is the file is able to be run, and the program contained within it is able to be used. If i have to resort on getting innocent parties to download a file of the very forums which I moderate, and put a lot of my time, money and effort into, I must be a pretty sad individual, it is also the easiest way for me to be caught doing such things, it is hosted on my uni webspace for crying out loud!!! There are pelnty of other ways I could infect computers, if i wanted to at all, which I do not because my aim is to help people with computers, not hinder them as my past record of helping people out with computer problems over the forums has shown.
I despise the fact that this is happening to me here again and feel that if people don't have a little faith in one of the longest running members of this online community, that there is not much hope for us at all.
