  1. Is it necessary, worthwhile, optimizing the registry?
  2. Just had 30 minutes of great fun. I received a call from an Indian chap from 'Windows' informing me that they had been receiving reports over the last few days that my computer was infected with viruses. He could show me proof of this by opening Event Viewer. The yellow and red symbols were sign of infection. Yikes, there were loads of them. I need to download from '' and run the application and give him the ID and password. I won't bore you with the rest as you've heard it a thousand times. Suffice to say it made a very entertaining break from working although I had to work very hard at playing dumb. There is one thing that did concern me however, from the background noise I could hear that this scam is being undertaken on a near industrial scale and clearly many were falling for it. This has been going on for years and I won't be naive enough to ask how they continue to get away with it because I know. Sadly I know people who have been duped despite the obvious signs but I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Vincent. Hope I ruined his day.

  10. Further to Steve's report in Security Alerts about this issue, I would welcome our own Experts views on the seriousness of the threat. Meantime here's a list of popular vulnerable websites (at time of publication).
  11. Both the files you refer to are legitimate and trustworthy. They are an essential part in assisting you with the identification and removal of any infection. The Virus Total reports can be explained as False Positives, that is to say they are being incorrectly identified as malicious due to similarities in their behavior.
  12. Would it be possible to incorporate a feature that allows remote locking or wiping of stored data in the event that the device or lost or stolen?
  13. The image you refer to is the VFA 103 Skull Squadron, F14 Fighter Squadron. Logo painted on tail fins. (without the cross bones)
