Re: Hacked: Advice Needed

No offense to Ravenquille, but I think we need to close/lock this thread.

I did some recon and the "exploit" which was found appears to be a corrupted desktop shortcut icon for her church website.(http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread ... 296&page=2). 

Basically, there are plenty of long dragging threads trying to help with whatever strange occurance occurs on her computers (http://help.lockergnome.com/security/Pr ... 11408.html and http://www.computing.net/answers/window ... 44097.html).

There are a lot of people who have tried to help you and whatever your problems are.  I am sorry, but I do not support continuing this any further.

Re: Hacked: Advice Needed

Interesting, as I'd begun looking at the same icon and website, as she'd mentioned, previously.

I'd agree, and per discussions with 'unnamed' others I've had in PM's since yesterday, I'd think closing this thread is a good idea.

Note, in that last URL you referenced, unsupported, the date of her post was 2005...  I'm sorry, but that 'issue' was almost 4 1/2 years ago, not just 2...  Whatever the issue, I think it's time to call it quits.
