[Edited by Admin]

I tend to test,run,hunt,sort malware for a living these last days and spend about 18 hours a day on 7 work boxes constantly infecting to achieve my work responsibilities

This is by far the biggest POS to fix that ive run across in all of 2008,tdss has sure been good for that this year. :(


As for them alabama folks,all I can say is "Deliverence"   ;D

I failed to realize that one of the post I made was edited of some harmless but very userful information for forum folks,why is this?

Is this how you greet everyone who tries to be a part of the forum or tries to share userful information or did I stumble into a modern day concentration camp?

I just cant imagine any self respecting Security Expert being anything less than offended by such actions.

I think Im sorry I registered here,is it possible to be remove now,I dont think I would like to be a part of anything like this,it doesnt seem right or fair.

Hi PX5,
Sorry that you were offended.
The information that you posted involved working in the registry.  In an effort to protect our members, we do not recommend posting that information on the general forums.  Such procedures are for the advanced user or for someone being supervised by a trained helper on the Malware Removal forum. We do appreciate your trying to help, though.

On a weekend canoeing trip down a river in the Georgia back country, four urban businessmen enter a nightmare in which both nature and mankind conspire to send them through a crucible of danger and degradation in which their lives and perhaps even their souls are put at horrendous risk

No worries Bugs!

I spec the words Export and Registry in the same sentence are of a harmful nature to some,it didnt strike me as anything dangerous but you could have been polite enough to justify your action for myself and others to see,unless your trying to project some other image here.

Cheers  ;)

I am a southerner and proud to be so....Alabama is also not Georgia...Sweet Home Alabama...And when I think of Georgia..I think of peaches...

I have never seen the movie nor read the book...I tend to read true life...Deliverance was created in the imagination of James Dickey (which makes one wonder what was on his mind) and acted out by Hollywood rats....It's not a true story...In case you were not aware of that....Neither was Texas Chain Saw...

However if you hear stories of Ted Bundy from Vermont, John Wayne Gacy from Illinois, Gary Evans from New York, Jeffrey Dahmer from Wisconsin, and Albert DeSalvo from Massachussetes...chances are they are true... :)

I am pretty familiar with the American South. I have lived there and elsewhere and even outside of the US, where people in other countries refer to ANY American (US) as a Yankee.

Well, people in Georgia pick on people of Alabama (many jokes) and then the people in Alabama have Mississippi to pick on.  There are little differences, but basically, if Georgia did not have the large metropolitan area of Atlanta, the remaining parts of Georgia would be pretty similar to that of Alabama and South Carolina in my humble opinion. I had lived in about 4 different southern states, so I think I know that from some first hand experiences.

Anyone care to debate this, please do.

Not sure where the joke is myself in the thread and being born a US "southerner". I have a very dry sense of humor, so I usually pick up on some things, at least I think I do.

Deliverance is a well known movie, but I haven't watched it in about 2 decades, so needless to say, I do not recall any of the famous quotes. I do recognize "Dueling Banjos" when it is played and understand what it often refers too, though. IIRC, the movie came out in 1972. :D
