  1. A reputable pharmacy checker has this to say: https://www.legitscript.com/websites/?website=planetdrugsdirect.com
  2. Yes, if it targets backup files etc, then they will be encrypted even if password protected or not.
  3. Another thing springs to mind. Most of our help given is on a one-to-one basis in the malware removal help forum. A like button would not really be appropriate under these circumstances due to the help being specific to a particular machine/person. In this instance, a feedback button would be more suitable where comments (praise or otherwise) can be submitted via a new window (if needed) offering say a 0-5 (poor to superb) tick box with a comment box area that is passed up the chain to a limited reader area to help us better determine the strengths and weaknesses in our support.
  4. But that would be defeating the whole purpose, being selective on positive results only! At least that's how I read what you have said even if it's not what you wanted to put across.
  5. I have never been a fan of the + or -1 (reputation) type system. Whilst the idea (in theory) is good, I have seen how it can be abused or gamed to fit an agenda whether for good or bad. We provide help and support which gets gratitude from the majority of people (we can't please everyone). This is (imo) the best form of recognition for the hard work that is put in. My own personal views.
  6. Such is the deal with major online games that eventually go free to play. Coders move on and company funds dry up so there is no longer worthwhile new content to keep the gamers interested. Generally only the hardline fans stick around but they too eventually move on. This is one reason WOW has had so much success because the subscribers keep the game alive and fun to play. I look at it this way, my £10 subscription works out around 25p per day. For that 25p I can (If I wanted) play from 24 hours. No-where else would you get this level of entertainment for so little a cost! Even if I manage
  7. World of Tanks (and may other 'Free to Play' games) have the ''Pay to Win' and cosmetic features however it's easy to spend more than a subscription based online game when you are constantly faced with players who live, breathe and spend a fortune on their characters/accounts to get the upper edge. I am not saying it's impossible to compete with them, just that it takes a lot longer to build up your characters/accounts although it increases the frustration when faced with these hardened players.
  8. Yes, it was brought in recently where players could buy a WOW Token which gives 30 days game play then list it on the Auction House for other players to buy with in-game gold. This feature was to help people that struggle earning in-game gold (not that it's difficult). I believe the figure is 15K game gold for 30 day tokens. If memory serves me right, the tokens are a fixed price on the Auction House so players don't get exploited. I personally never bought a token as I subscribe (£10 a month) which is not a lot considering what's on offer and any other game would cost around £25-40 and when
  9. Oh dear, you both really should take the plunge and play World of Warcraft. I started way back in Vanilla (The original before extra content) and have never found any other game as challenging or fun to play long term.
  10. Cars occasionally passing on a windy, wet road.
  11. Sorry for the delay, we have just got back from DefCon. It will be looked into. Please allow a further 24 - 48 hours as we have a backlog.
  12. LOL that was funny. I remember this and a few others, were our dream machines back then as the best I could afford that time was a dragon 32 which was out of this world.
  13. I work on the principle of, how secure will I be after I have removed the infections as often paranoia can set in especially when things just dont feel right afterwards. A computer is like a car engine and you get to know the tune, when this misses a beat, you soon notice very quickly. If its a minor infecrtion that is quickly removed I proceed as normal but when we are dealing with Rootkits and other major nasties, I prefer to simply remove them then totally reinstall my pc to square one. It may take about 10 hours but it helps to clean out all the junk and keeps my PC running at top perform
  14. I know that here in the UK, manufacturers were giving the customers the option to have a new PC/laptop rolled back to XP rather than have Vista installed as many felt Vista was too problematic. Masy systems are still released with XP Sp3. Lets hope Windows 7 does a better job.
