Re: ***PIRATE BAY IS BACK - WITH A VIRUS***
well you shouldn't go or trust any of those sites, as anything you download from there could be a virus , some of the most advanced viruses attack the partition so even if you think you can avoid the virus by having two independent drives then think again since it can jump any barriers

The new owners are "Global Gaming Factory"... pretty shady.

I went to TPB, didn't see any virus warning or anything. I'm using KIS2010


it came up that it had been quarantined on my laptop as soon as i went to the page...could be a coincidence but i doubt it.

The only way to browse safely is a non-persistent virtual machine. You have a pristine OS (any OS) every time you start it up. And performance is not an issue if your hardware is within a few years old.

piratebay sucks. ISOHUNT and demonoid are way better!!
 Quoting: Stratocaster



demonoid was pretty good until they went down for a year - Since then, every torrentor worth his salt has moved on.
I can't tell you where though because...

Re: ***PIRATE BAY IS BACK - WITH A VIRUS***
sounds like this antivrus & a fake AV program

to get started fixing reboot and ctrl alt del a fast as you can for me it stopes it from calling every file infected keep program manager open and try something like this [link to www.bleepingcomputer.com]

or duel boot with linux much safer

Re: ***PIRATE BAY IS BACK - WITH A VIRUS***
I've received a virus on two separate occasions from tpb both of those times it was immediately after searching for a torrent. It wasn't too catastrophic as I set up a restore point just before going to the site, knowing the benefits out weigh the risk

Re: ***PIRATE BAY IS BACK - WITH A VIRUS***
Once again...commerce takes over. Hell, if I had the money to startup a goood P2P system that wasn't subject to most of the "western" world laws, I would do the same. and if I couldn't...I would sell spam advertising....it's to bad that Pirate Bay sold out..guess I am gonna have to go back to serving my own software via my Venz. server. Does anyone really thing that torrent searchers wanna talk with "girls in our area" or find "porn in NYC"? I can walk out my door and find real porn that is much better ;-) bump

Re: ***PIRATE BAY IS BACK - WITH A VIRUS***
I even tried System Restore and it wouldn't allow it to be restored. What do I do?
I appreciate the help.........
 Quoting: Feeling Hopeless 889661

I'd say it's time to format and re-install your operating system. Perfect working copies of corporate XP are available on P/B and they work great. No serial...no activation and no register. I can re-install as often as needed. My advice?...Get a cheap computer for P/B purposes only. Let that one get the virus, if there is one. That way you're not wrecking a good computer.....Or...start using Linux Ubunto.

Ya I'm hesitant to believe that the virus scanners are detecting false positives.

My scanner goes haywire whenever I visit that site. It slows down my computer for like 10 seconds while all the scripts and crap are being scanned and blocked and what-not.

Re: ***PIRATE BAY IS BACK - WITH A VIRUS***
So, those false alerts that you TPB advertisers keep talking about? They disabled my task manager, kept me from getting on the internet, slowed down my computer to a crawl, and disabled my virus scans. Twice. The first time the computer blue screened a couple of times and then crashed altogether. The second time, I knew what was coming and caught it in time. That's some pretty impressive work for a false alert!

I've just got my computer clean again and I'm here trying to find out how to keep that stuff from getting on my computer, but it looks pretty clear... Stay off TPB.

This thread is packed with music and movie industry shills.
TPB is working just fine and dandy as always, completely virus free (although do always scan your torrent d/l's). Theres no getting rid of it :D
