i think i'm ready to buy groceries now!

i feel sooo much better about my computer's security now - after a long uphill battle.  but, according to SHIELDS UP, i may have about twenty worms and viri....  i don't care so much, after i shut down ports 135-139, WHICH I URGE YOU ALL TO DO AS WELL!  i also need to shut down Windows DCOM - but i can find a way to do that - Windows is so SUCK.  I just saw some OP named GNU and maybe i'll try it.  Anyway, all the progress i've been making on this hard-drive I can tranfer to my bigger one, since i saved all my programme set-ups on disc, etc.

now i'm going to sleep, and then order groceries and maybe go somewhere later, just to see what it looks like OUTSIDE....  hmmm.......

You should format it. You know that, right?

well yeah - i've reformatted this hard drive about a hundred times and now it's just so full of security software i'm hoping to just selectively remove the infections over time... once i get the next hard drive, i can install all the same stuff from fresh set-ups, and life should no longer suck

McAfee sucks

do you know how i can shut down DCOM? i'm not on a Lan/local network - will i die if i remove NT/session manager or shdocs.dll(?)?

you should ask marahmarie to add you - she's really good at comps - she'd like your recent post!

My dear, dear madman101 - Marah Marie and I are the same person. I'll look those files up for you (and DCOM) when I get a chance.

I thought you knew I was Marah Marie; when we became friends I added you to both journals the same day; I'm pretty sure the name Marah Marie was in my Profile on Anti-AOL, too (I don't think it is now but I have to go check I hate my Profile page so I try to never look at it).

I didn't get a chance to look that stuff up for you but as soon as I get through today's email I'll take a look.

P.S. - Parlez vou francais? Tres bein!

You can safely disable DCOM (Microsoft's new name for the old, unsafe OLE), unless your computer is on a network, in which case it might need it for distributed functionality for some MS and third-party programs. More on that here:


NT/Session Manager is tied to the process smss.exe; it is an essential Windows process. Just make sure it's not masking itself as a Windows process when in fact it is a trojan. More on that here:


Shdoc.dll helps IE run correctly. Even if IE isn't your primary browser, I'd leave it alone, since MS and many third-party vendors use it when they need to.

I often answer questions in computerhelp, computertalk and tech_support; if you scroll down to the FAQs on computerhelp's Profile page, you'll find tools that will help you remove spyware/virus/trojan/general malware from your computer.

Did you see that guy from Russia who just narrowly escaped being hit by a bus? (An out of control bus plowed through an intersection while the guy was crossing the street...he made a run for it and the bus missed him by inches.)

dude! that was UNBELIEVABLE! not fun for him, but he's one of the luckiest damn people ever. i thought it was a weird coincidence after my post too. i think maybe something strange is in the air.

btw - i just heard that apparently russia is experimenting with cloud-seeding right outside of moscow - so i wonder if that's what caused the flapjack in the sky...!

Today, the papers reported that a bus driver in Surrey (a suburb of Vancouver) was caught doing Sudoku puzzles WHILE HE WAS DRIVING!
