I find that of most of them now, virus scanners seem to simply say " I havent seen that often enough, so its a virus.". Its getting
to a ridiculou s level. Ironicall y its happening as it gets harder and harder to actually get a virus due to Windows security. Most of
them have gone down the "heuristic" road where they guess if its a virus or not..whic h of course leads to the "better safe than
sorry" way they decalre something off limits now.
   I use Microsoft s protectio n.. never seem to get trouble, but then Im pretty carefull as to what I open..

Like I said before most virus authors depend on people not being attentive . You know the I am assuszuu the clever my uncle died last year leaving me millions, I need help to get my millions out of the country for this help I will give you half of my fortune my 4 wives and 20 children, please click on this link to help.

Nothing will jump out and attack you until you press the "I wonder what this does" button.

Many years ago and I do mean many... I was asked when commissio ning a network, which was the best virus protectio n and anti hack system I could recommend .

I still contend to this day you can't beat this system.

No floppy access, no usb access no network access offline operation only.

But wheres the fun in that.

Can I skip the wives and get my pick of the kids?  If so, count me in...

Interesti ng article (put on your tinfoil had first) that towards the bottom discusses how the CIA reportedl y exploits virus scanners.  Perhaps Art could pick up some tricks to get rid of the annoying false alarms.

As the saying goes of course they do, if not them it's someone else, A lot of people forget how WW2 was won.

Over here they say what they do and no one realy cares.

Just read the article, no surprises there really. Being the insignifi cant peon that I am I have nothing to worry about. Apart from my making the Obituary one day, that's about all the fame I will have in newspaper appearanc es.

But we the people voted and we the people allow them to do so.

If they did not and if they could do it but just did not do it and something bad happened they will get their arse handed to them, Me I hope they do it.
