OK, I am willing to hold my hands up and admit I was totally wrong, this will be done on one condition.
Assume someone has done your restore and cleaned their system fully. They have just gone on the net after buy something with their credit card via the net, sent an Email with their name and address in, copied their driving licence with a scanner to send off to the police via snail mail or something else along those lines where they have been dealing with personal details.

Now tell me what is stopping me from getting all that info and using it to buy electrical goods in their name and committing fraud. Or stopping me from selling that info on to the lo-life ID criminals, who will use it to create Passports, driving licences and credit cards etc.

If you can tell me that something has stopped me from getting all their details, I apologise and your system works.

PS: I didn't dispute that your system is good for restoring to a good setup, or that it would recover a system after a minor attack. The only thing I dispute is that it offers protection against any form of virus etc.

Just remind me to never open anything that has Ron's name attached to it.

I certainly know what Gary and Chris are talking about, why they are talking about it, and what they are trying to help with, having been a victim of a nasty virus/trojan only once before.

I was TOTALLY BLESSED in that both my husband, who is a computer systems man and my son, who runs the IT department where he works, were home when it happened. I only lost a minimum of data because both of them knew what do do, how to do it, and caught it quickly.

I'm living proof that the RESTORE POINTS do not work they way you think they do Ron.

A six-eight hour rebuild while losing your data is absolutely awful.

The beat goes on

I don't think what janet said is revelant but chris opened a new can of worms.. when he mentioned using a credit card. I don't do online transactions and those would require another work around

The rest of this is nonsense

Ron,
OK, it's nonsense. I talk utter rubbish and I was wrong all along, your method works like a dream.
Happy surfing

Another thing to look at, and I'm not sure if this is covered by Dougs server protection is this

PS: Janet, nobody can say I haven't tried . Advise is there for members to read. I will let them decide on what is correct

You are rude, arrogant and ignorant! Chris and Gary are trying to help you by explaining the flaws in your system and how to get virus protection without slowing down your connection or draining system resources.

As for your above insults, just because you were never taught proper manners doesnt mean that everyone else here has to lower themselves to your level. What you call 'sukking up' is proper forum ettiquette when 'hijacking' someone elses thread.

All I can say is I hope theres someone out there listening to this thread that will make you eat your words.... I'm tempted myself tbh.

I don't think name calling exactly elevates this discussion, and I'm sure that members will make their decisions based on the arguments expressed, and not on any "sucking up", real or imagined.

I hope we're here to give information and advice that will help other members, that is certainly my intent, and perhaps that might best be achieved with a little less hostility.
