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.

>"Um, I'm not sure if this is serious or sarcastic."

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.
