And all these warnings coming from users of 3rd-party programmable junk browsers like Chrome, FF, Edge!

And I'm supposed to be the naive one! :lol:

The only time people’s computers ever got hijacked by ransomware, were users of 3rd-party programmable junk browsers like the ones I mentioned.

Bullshit.

I was working in a company and we got hacked. It took 2 weeks for the Techies to clear the System of the virus. Then the CEO came back from holiday and when he found out what was going on he sent out an email saying the next person to release a virus will be sacked.

Anyway off he went in his office and turned his computer on and saw an email from a young lady which had subject "I love you". Having a keen eye for the young ladies the dirty old git opened the email to see who loved him and released the bloody virus again.

It was way down on the list and ignored al the emails about the virus.

Needless to say he did not fire himself.

Most hacks are self inflicting by the users opening attachments they should not be opening.

Keep backup of all your files regularly and you have nothing to fear from anybody so long as you have virus software. Microsoft has one for free and it's good enough.

Darwin was wrong. it is not just the fitest that survive the good enoughs survive too. Well he did well for his generation.

The secret is not an anti-virus program (I don’t even use such junk) but to clean all junk files daily BEFORE shut down.

If you don’t, then should a malicious file make its way to your HD it’ll activate at the next boot-up to do its damage.

Malicious files need to ACTIVATE (run/load in memory) to do whatever damage they are designed to do, and the trigger for them to load could be the 1. Task Scheduler, or the 2. Load at Startup list, or a service in 3. System Services.

If you cleaned up all junk files before shutdown the malicious file won’t be there to fire up at the next boot-up, regardless of how this call is made.

--------------------------------

I find it entertaining that some of you consider yourselves technical enough to be giving out advice… in your case Lordo you’ve gone one step further by advising someone who has spent his entire adult life in the IT industry in multiple roles.

So yeah… I must say, you’re a funny bunch of fucking weirdos on this stupid forum. :lol:

If you think you are the best and all else are idiots, you have the issue dear boy. You need help but first you must accept your issues. Unless you do nobody can help you.

So you think advising people not to open suspect email that may contain virus, or other files which may also contain macros which are viruses or having virus control is not good advice. You are all full of yourself boy and I recognise that. You is somebody with a huge chip on his shoulder trying to cover his inferiority complex.

Once an idiot, you will always be an idiot boy.
