I do have a genuine problem for this blog. I cannot open, edit or view these 32bit extraction files that seem to fit in with other legitimate ones of the same type that are necessary for proper functioning of the ATI radeon 128mb 300x (in a Dell computer - sorry to say) My first angle at this problem is whether my devices and software tools are really at issue. Are there any know identified malware that is target oriented at say the ATI radeon and Dell (Dimension 5100) or other.
I have a legal backround; maybe this thread is misplaced to some extent but it is on point in that I have a genuine problem with my ATI card being used in RAID mode and broadcasting private information without my knowledge. I need a fix, new drivers or maybe I should dump the Dell or at least the Motherboard by Intel. I also hope to engage a tech with a backround in the legal issues, (privacy and Intellectual property and proprietary issues).
The suspect software I downloaded from a disk (UK) was Ati-tools. There was also 7Zip. There are suspect files in my computer that appear to have utilized my ATI Radeon card. In more than one occasion I have had my files broadcasted or stolen. I knew of the vulnerablity and I accept the consequences of mis-use of free software or my distaste of anti-virus software. The resut is that I regularly contract malware and study their methods and purpose.
Could anyone point me to sound sound advice about privacy issues, intellectual property issues, free adult site material downloading issues, Freeware downloading, ect. as these relate to/ or are connected with MS Agent, Dr. Watson, Port 80, Dell Computer-Default (*)files, Internet Explorer, Telenet, Borland or any other system operated means of monitoring a registered or unregistered windows machine that accesses the internet on a broadband cable service provider (i.e Comcast).
Issues relating to modifications of Signatures, System Keys, Preferences, adultered Attributes, un-warranted stack dumps, I.E. script downloads, etc. are key areas in which I am researching legally. Also of interest are alliances, partnerships and licensing -say between Network Associates-Microsoft, Symantec-Microsoft, Dell-Intel, or the like. I appreciate a legal minded tech with experience in this area of discussion. My aim is educate myself and others on the bounds of internet users, providers, and Proprietary Services like some discussed above.
