Points for DSJOCKEY - meaningful dialogues

Um, I'm not sure if this is serious or sarcastic.  I was serious about the idea of setting up a web page like you did instead of throwing up a large number of links.  If you continue to use that link in lieu of large posts like the one that had been in mine, I think the information in there will prove extremely useful.  I'm a tech who has had to tell numerous customers that their machines are severely gimped up with spyware (following-up with an explanation of what spyware is and why it's bad) and need to be rebuilt, so I'm well aware of the problem.  Anyway, here's my comment as you requested.

Sorry to hear that. I'm NOT sarcastic. I work in the it-department of an public office in Denmark, and have about 800 users to administrate, and as you can see in my expert rating, I'm using a lot of private  hours to help other users around the world.

I am serious about your great idea, and have done a lot of work, to make a webpage about all the malware links I know about. And I am considering to supply it with a better description of the 7 issues, that's on it right now.

As you can see - if you by accident - read one of my comments from the last couple of days  - from now on -  I allways starts with a link to my webpage with all the links, and then attacks the real issue of the questioner.

Malware is a great problem.

* You can't struggle it with an anti-virusprogram.
* You can't struggle it with an anti-spywareprogram
* You can't struggle it with a firewall
* You can't struggle it with a proxyserver
* You can't struggle it with a spamfilter
* You can't struggle it with pathes and hotfixes

You have to deal with each and all of the different issues to protect yourself.

>"do you think 500 points is appropriate for this?"

Yes I do - I was not aware, that all the links in my effort to help other people was annoying for them.

I thaught I helped them with all the links, but now I realised, that some of the questioners and other experts regarded my answers as kind of spam.

So in my concern of helping others with 7 different issues, I accidently was doing one of my own issues myself.

If I could rate this higher I would.
