Not at all. But if someone wasn't already intimate with HijackThis, they wouldn't have a clue as to what the thread in that link was even about, now would they. So your first advice sucked because it lacked any explaination & was little more than a google search for someone.
I've already explained why your second response was worthless.
...And I suppose now I'm obligated to explain to you why your last response is equally as worthless...*sigh*
|Yes, I can match wits, and one up you.
No, I very much doubt that, but iddinis fun?!
In fact, let's forget all about Mello's problem and just have a pissing contest!
|Also, Reformatting is a real pain and I agree, but it sure will clean up your system, especially for those who have limited knowledge of cleaning key loggers, and virus's that regenerate themselves out of their systems. Reformatting also, provides alot of other benefits, but I won't get into to much technical details, because I am sure you aren't reading this far down anyway before you flame someone, blah, blah..
Uhhhm, ya mean like painting yer whole car to to be sure you got that scratch off the door?
Look, we can keep going on like this, but when all is said & done, people that are not "enthusiasts" are only willing to learn what they need
to remedy a problem with their system.
But when someone asks for advice and demonstrates that they have actively persued other courses of action in an effort to irradicate a persistant adware or virus, then they; -at least to me
-, are probably at a level of technical understanding where they are fully aware of the fact that they could reformat their entire system.
People choose to see that as a last resort because they are using their computer as a tool and not a toy, and usually the tool has much more sensitive data that needs careful preservation than the toy.
That's all, dude.
(BTW, you were doing great until you said "blah, blah...".
