Default An appeal to search engines

sponsored links

Think your system is infected by a sick spyware that makes it load unwanted pages; that gives you a message that 'your system is infected by spyware -download anti spyware now'?? Then read on.........

The fact of the matter is that, this is not a spyware. This is a program that lodges itself in IE or MSN explorer by deleating a dll file. This program sets itself as your start page and loads itself every time you start the computer. It can even manipulate itself into different websites everytime. Mostly these websites are search sites.

[B]OK Now for the solution:[/B]

Anti Spywares, anti adwares and anti virus softwares are of no use. These softwares can remove some secondary files, but the primary files still remain as they form themselves as part of IE or MSN. So stop using them. Going to regedit and manipulating the system files will also do no good and the files will keep loading again as soon as deleated.

Your only best bet is to go for system restore if you have windows XP. Go to programs - accessories - system tools - system restore.

Now restore your system to a previous restore date. Restore dates are shown in block letters. Restore the oldest date possible. After restoration you will find that IE and MSN work very normally. After doing restoration delete all the restoration files (although this step is not necessary).

Now, remove IE or MSN as your default browser. Load Netscape and keep it as your default. In IE make sure to keep the security high just for precaution.
These bugs do not work against netscape so you will be safe.

If you don't have a system restore point or have disabled system restore previously, the only chance you have is to format your OS. Take your xp cd and format the entire system.

Before doing so, take a backup of all your files using a cd writer or another hard drive. Reloading or formating XP will solve the problem for good.

[B]An appeal to search engines[/B]

Recently the number of sick websites that are filled with junk and very destructive content have increased over the internet. I don't why people do it, but they do it. Sadists are just a reality as any other normal person. They love to see people in pain and fear. They would go to any extent to promote themselves or haress others. This is nothing but crime or abuse. They are playing with people's minds and their hard earned money. They are making them waste their time in useless activities. This is really too bad.

The worst part is that these sick sites reach to us via search engines. The ironey is that they rank high in search engines. All that you need to do is click them by mistake and you got yourself trouble.

Search engines are the mirror of the internet. No search engines actually would mean no internet. So this is my appeal to search engines that instead of focusing on money making and puting competitors down, they help solve the problem of junk on the internet.

1.) Search engines can form high end algorithms that can identify sites that promote spywares or viruses and exclude them from their database.

2.)They can make use of special information in their search results that can tell the visitor about potentially damaging content. For instance, if a search engine feels that a websites has harmful content, it can include information in the SERP like 'warning' or 'this site can have damaging content/spywares' etc.

3.) Hire more staff to manually go through databases and locate sites that have damaging content. **** sites generally tend to have such content.

4.) Regulate the internet by giving access to pages that have real content to display high in the SERP than those which are filled with junk

The internet is becomming a dangerous place and if not regulated can lead to serious disastors. Things are developing too fast for men to cope with. Infact the internet has developed at a speed faster than imaginable and hence there is lack of any order/rules and regulations. This is high time that we do something to protect the internet from damaging our personal property and privacy. This is a very serious problem and we need to think on this together. All nations should come together to solve this crises, instead of ignoring it.
I think the US government must take the first steps in this regard and not formulate lousy plans but really effective ones. Then comes the search engines, goolge, yahoo and msn - should work together to slove this problem. These pages rank high in yahoo and google.

Please feel free to redistribute this advice. Let's renew the internet and free it form sick people who don't care about others. Let's save the internet from becoming a hackers paradise and a dumping ground of junk.
