Usually they aren't doing more than just say "you have XX errors. Buy this program to fix them", but when you buy it, it does not more than say "The problems are fixed". There are not these errors the program is detecting. And it dosen't repair them.

Ever tried to get at Errorsafe pop-up? It finds 169 errors, but it can't scan your computer. It is just fooling the user to buy their program. It can't fix any errors.

Hallo Test :)
It is a wonder that those firm is still around
- As they make more hard then good.
 :Win73:Yes I tried to have Errorsafe pop-up
And my harddisk was just brand new (So I could not manage to have so many errors yet)
And Ad-Aware say: No errors.


I don't know if you understand this, but: Hej Jørn, er du dansker?  :D

Yes it is amazing that software like that is legal in a country. It is only a pain in the ass, with all the advertisments and so on.

Yes I am Dansker ! :gwave:
I was born in Copenhagen, Danmark
 :thumbsup:
Are You Danish too, since you write in Danish language
:mitch:

Fullblood Danish, yeah  :D

But im from Jylland.

Nice to meet some other danish people in here  :D

But it was a little off-topic. Lets get on the topic again.  :)
Ja - Det er dejligt at møde en landsmand - :thumbsup:
Min kone er fra Jylland - Randers
Ok - Tilbage til Topic ! :hammy:

Yes - It is nice to meet a fellow Dane (Of what landsmand is translated to?!)
My wife is from Jutland - Randers. :rose:
OK - Back to Topic ! :boat3:

Another "Fake" to be cautious about is codecs.  Example of how it can happen, with pictures> General installation of Fake Codecs, or ... how to get screwed the easy way

Have you heard of Malware Complaints?

This site was started by anti-malware fighters as a place where you, a victim, can register your feelings about the malware writers that have made your life a misery.
It is to provide you with ways that YOU can start to fight back at them, to hopefully start to make them suffer for what they have done to you, and the thousands of others who they have infected...

These are going to be online petitions to present to your government's Computer Experts and Ministers or Representatives.
In each country our anti-malware fighters have worked out the best way for you to complain.

Alphabetical Index of Infections at Malware Complaints

NOTE: The links above are to my country of origin (US).  At Malware Complaints, be sure to navigate to your country forum for info in your native language, as well as the specific infection that these volunteers have taken time to list by geographical region. It's a way for us end-users to support the efforts of malware experts, and file YOUR OWN complaint, in this fight against crapware.

Hallo Landzdown Forum
Just came to think of...
Is FAKE "Spyware" Programs, like ErrorSafe still legal operating?
I´ve heard that there is some "helpful" pup-up programs, who offer free scans -
and put files on the PC, so you have to buy their program to get rid of the hundreds of threads,
who was put by the programme itselves.

Are such programs still arround - fooling people?
And if - What action by the law have been made to stop them?

What are the names of those, who still do this durty buisness - if they still do it
Maybe it is aStupid quistion to ask :stupid:But I am curious.

Three years ago I send eCards from 123Greetings, and there was such a pup-up
from DriveCleaner ? (Do not remember the name) -
And I was foolish enough to accept a free scan - did not know then that it was unwise of me to accept it.
- Had not heard of those FAKE products.
And I had ofcause 1000.. threads (even though my computer was new) :blink:
It was another PC then this I have today.

Hi Jørn Rudolph  :)

For all I know about smileys because I like them, I am surprised I am unaware of this Smiley Central.
A quick search brings up this:
Quote
What is Smiley Central?
Although none of these products claim to be spyware, they do slow your computer down. All of the products use cookies to track usage, although they claim not to use cookies or anything else to track personally identifiable information.
http://www.pchell.com/support/smileycentral.shtml

And reading a discussion here http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showtopic=55260&st=0
...provided me with alittle more background.  This info seems somewhat dated, so I don't know the current status of this/these products, but given the history of the info above, I wouldn't have it on my computer, especially when there are other alternatives.

One alternate smiley "management" software for free is Smiley Pad

There are numerous smiley "collections" online which can be found on google.

There are 3 smiley artists (they created them originally) who I have a preference for that list all their smileys on their homepage as well as links to other smiley resources.

Fool's Smileys    :blink: :tech: :popcorn: :exorcize:

Aiwan's (Kolobok style) Smileys :Yahoo: :Win73:

Connie's Smileys

Hopefully, others can answer your direct questions concerning Smiley Central, as all I have to offer is alternatives.
Hallo Ripley :mitch:
Many thanks for your nice reply ...
Both how to unstall Smiley Central
And the alternative smiley sites - Who are interesting !
It was nice of you to write !

General I do not understand why this product is in miscredit
So I was looking for some true facts.
Fine that you send me your quick reply !
And with many informations
Good Friday from Jørn Rudolph :thumbsup:

Hallo again Landzdown :gwave:

Well - I just wondered...
How "Danger" is MyWebSearch/SmileyCentral really?
- What harm can it do to your PC - Or to the recivers of your e-mails?

(Another quistion is if a person like them or hate them - But that is a matter of taste)
- As they come in all versions from :smash:to :rose: !
And most "serious" news-groups get "wild" having one single  :? have I notiched !
- They only want plain text not HTML and expecial not smileys or pictures !

I had it with my PC WindowsXP on Internet Explorer + OutlookExpress.

- And I know that it is on line as spyware by Ad-Aware, SUPER AntiSpyware

Also I know that some of my e-mail was reported as spam, because there was some
smileys on, and the person I send them to had a strong spamfilter.

On my new PC with WindowsVista (2 months old) first I could not download it,
because it said: Sorry, do not work with Vista.

After 3 weeks I tried again - and it worked now on Windows Mail, just like on Outlook Express.

But - can it "destroy" anything for anybody - me or others - since it "redmarked" ?
- And what excatly can be the problem with it?
(I am not asking if they are "clever" or "Stupid" - Only about their spyware/mailware risk)

Have a nice day and thank you for your help so far.
Think it is a interesting place to visite...

Security Software Programs / ??? Skins For Ad-AwareSE Personal ???
« on: June 23, 2007, 05:44:37 PM »
 :hammy:
Hallo Landzdown.com !
 :sos:
I used Ad-AwareSE Personal with the skin MediumBlue -
besides default.
But some weeks ago I reased this programme, because I downloaded the new 2007 version -
If I had vaited some days, and read "the warnings" on Lavasofts Support Forum
about that it did not work with Windows Vista, I never would have erased it.
But I did (and did not think of saving the MediumBlue skin).
Because I thought I was going to use 2007 version.
- It is right: It do not (yet) work with Vista -
So I earsed 2007, and was lucky to find a place (PC World), where I again could
download "The Good Old" 1.06r1 Ad-Aware Personal.
 :Hammys pint:
But I can not find a place to download skins -
It is NOT on Lavasofts Homepage, who now only tell about 2007 version,
and have nothing for the version just before that.
 :gwave:
Is there anyone from Landzdown.com who can tell me where I can find
MediumBlue on the Internet?
I also read, when I searched by Google, that there was a www.adawareskin page,
who is closed down, and that there was quite many custum made skins ...
Film, Music, Christmas (Not the season now) Mickey Mouse? and others.
 :Win73:
Is/was that so?
And can anyone tell me where I can find the skins?
Or perhaps someone would send some skins to me
(If you have any)
- Not Greyscale or Yellow Sky ... I like default better...
But I miss MediumBlue - So that would be real fine !
- And if there is other I could "test" and perhaps use

Hope for :help:
on my (small!) "problem" -
Because the main thing is of cause that the program work -
and it do !
Still I am interested in new look 8)
Best Wishes
And Good Weekend
From Jørn Rudolph, Copenhagen Danmark
