  • Installing spyware on my computer.

    Going to reformatt one of my computers soon and want to install as much spyware as I can before I reformatt to see how much it can handle.

          That has got to be one of the funniest things ever. You should install everything possible, then run ad-aware or spybot to see if it grabs most of it.

            Everything possible would probably seriously mess up his computer...

              Why would this matter if he's formatting?

                I think he should go for it if the time is worth it to him, it is a really intresting project to say the least.

                  Make a list of all the sites you get spyware from, maybe we could make a blacklist of sites?

                  In fact, EVERYONE who gets spyware and knows where they got it should add to it.

                      That does crap you know that? In fact, it only makes sites like Gator be even more agressive and try to find other sneaky methods of installing their junk on our computers.

                        i did this, i have vmware, so i installed windows xp and set IE to allow everything and then downloaded Kazza and install it, then went to a few warez/porn sites, then ran ad-aware, it found close to 300 things, i deleted them all, then i ran spybot S&D but i forgot to count how many things it found, but it was a big list.

                            This sounds like an interesting project.

                              I will post a webpage in a bit. Going to look for some system monitoring software to log how the performance is.
