Well, I would like to say that I have no Idea how it happened, but my Tablet PC (my school Tablet), is so crippled by a virus as to make it more pathetic than a one legged dog trying to chase after cars.

So here's the moral of the story, if your going to use BitTorrents, virus check the file before you use it.

*Sigh* I'm gonna have a fun time explaining to tech support how my computer was downloading music onto itself... Embarassed

So have any of you ever had something like this happen to you? How did it turn out?

At least it's music, and not material of a more "questionable" nature.

Questionable? Like certain economic salvation programs?

True, I'm just hoping it does not come up. Luckily, I'm going to a LAN party tomorrow, so hopefully the assemblage of Computer Science and Network Security majors can help me out Wink .

I also have a Tablet PC for school. I haven't had to many problems, except last year I had a few problems with it syronizing onto our schools network and problems saving work. When I took it to my school Tech support, I ended up having around 300 pictures from my digital camera, which they weren't happy with. (It was pretty much all of my sisters, she just put them on my computer for some reason) I also had iTunes installed wrong, and I had GIMP on my computer, and tons of other programs. Schools don't like it when you overload your computer. Wink

Dakota State University goes on a 2 year plan for tablets, for those two years, the tablet is yours, you can really do anything you want with it, and they replace it / fix it if it breaks. So I'm not to worried about having a virus on it as I am them wanting to know how I got the virus in the first place.

Yeah, I'm the kind of person who worries to much.

By the way, what Kind of tablet do you have? My personal ('Desktop') Tablet is a gateway, and this years freshmen got Fujitsu Tablets.

Tech Help Thread

That being said, I'd also like to take a moment to remind everyone that topics on file sharing and illegal downloads are against the CoC, and can result in bannination.
