    Welcome to the Security Board

    Ask any security related questions in here, things like firewall, anti-virus, spam and spyware measures.
    Cheers, Claude.

    Claude

    Any chance of trawling the other forums like XP, Software Finds and Wants, etc to move relevant threads to this forum?
    Such as any thread including the words:
    Spybot
    Ad-aware (variously spelled!)
    Spyware<anything>, like SpywareBlaster, SpywareGuard
    CWShredder
    HijackThis
    Startup<anything> (like StartupList, StartupMonitor)
    Merijn
    Mike Lin

    Thanks, and congratulations on creating the first new Forum for quite some time!

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by WyllyWylly on 26-May-04 05:32. )</P>I think it might be a better option to let the forum populate itself. There are several reasons for this. Firstly, trawling the other forums for these types of items would be extremely time consuming. Secondly, it would leave a plethora of "Post moved" markers in place of the moved threads and add clutter to the other boards. Thirdly, if anyone has directly linked to one of those posts, the link would then become broken. Lastly, some of those threads would be hard to make a call on, so what might suit one person as a candidate for moving might not apply to another.

    I have no doubt that this forum will soon be populated with many interesting things. It will take some time to "educate" everyone in the Lounge on where to properly post such items.

    Just my <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15>, of course.

    Edited to add:

    So of course, after saying I think it's a bad idea I go and move a thread into the new forum. Point taken, John, perhaps there is a middle ground here that we should take a look at.

    After Mark's <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15> I'm almost afraid to post here for fear it will be moved to some other forum without my knowledge !! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Seriously though....... a tip of the hat to Claude for this one. It's a necessary topic that deserves it's own forum in today's security conscious world of computing.

    Thanks Claude !! <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Perhaps my Starpost, <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15> Anti Adware, Spyware, Hijack could be moved here from the "General Windows Forum".
    This post seems to be getting a lot of reference lately and anyone linked to it would likely be checking out this forum anyway.

    Have a Great day!!!
