My comments aren't just for your consumption, but also for others viewing this topic, what you do with your own system is down to you. But to say don't worry about scripts, when they are responsible for much of the malware people get isn't great advice.

While we get OT on an OT thread.... (A bit strange, isn't it...!?) ;D
....I 100% agree with Dave.

Hi bob3160,

Yes rather funny. But in earnest these messages and also messages on the Internet about people being away could be read by unfriendly people that could come and visit your premishes while not being invited. There is also a scam site where peolpe could look up their eventual time of death, to only find later that these data were used to commit personal data theft. All real and all dangerous examples that to give away too much information is risky. Better that the answering machine does not reveal where you are hanging out,

Polonus,
This picture has nothing to do with me. Not all of us assume the worst. :) Some of us have friends that watch and stay in the house when we're away. :)

Hi bob3160,

Off course I was not thinking of you. This was just meant as a general warning. But there is always a lot of thruth in humour,

My answering machine said the following:

"Hello, I'm an answering machine
My master can't come to the phone right now but if you leave a message after the tone, I'll be glad to relay it to him and maybe he'll even get back to you."

My personal favorite included "At the sound of the beep ... if you don't know what to do then, I probably don't wanna talk to you anyway."  ;)

I usually ignore incoming long-distance calls showing as unidentified, especially toll-free numbers which are almost invariably sales pitches.  But once in a while I like to pick up the phone anyway and answer "City morgue -- you kill 'em, we chill 'em."

Well she actually did a better job and was far more accurate than iYogi in their videos. The steps she took would probably clean up most of the infections people would get unlike the iYogi videos where the recommended procedures were worthless.

Better than iYogi for sure  ;D. Programs to use very good. Specially the part recommending Avast!  8). Methodology also good. Enough for easy to remove malware and get you going, but in IMHO you need to follow up with expert help to be sure there is nothing else hidden that can reinfect the comp. So the video gives you a false security impression. Makes it look too simple.

Hi bob3160!

I hope you are not angry about my copying your picture with the yellow boat, 3 girls and the cat (looks like mine 3 colored cat, which now has to ware a collar made of plastic).
Thanks.
