General question to those using a pirated OS

February 17th, 2018

TO those using a pirated operating system be it xp or 7 . How do you confirm that your OS has not been tampered with and a undetectable rootkit installed on it ?
These days I am getting a a bit paranoid about security (online banking and all) and since my windows was obtained from some random cd found in the market I am bit scared with the possibility that my OS could have been tampered with . Questions : 1. is there anyway I can guarantee with 100% accuracy that my system is backdoor and rootkit proof ?
2. if not , from where can I obtain a genuine untouched version of xp ? I have searched on .org and there are a number of results, but there doesn’t seem to be any way of finding out if they are really untouched editions.

^ thats my question is it enough run a bunch of antivirus ?
If you download Untouched ISO you don’t have to worry. You have a plenty of Untouched ISOs here on WBB, and don’t be paranoid you don’t work for NASA, FBI etc so that you need to worry about data or something else.. Just chill it’s just OS!
P.s. ( Judging by download of untouched ISO you will see that everything is ok )!
Answer #5
yes untouched OS is indeed a solution. but I would rather keep my current installation.
Answer #6
^ thats my question is it enough run a bunch of antivirus ?
Of course it’s not enough, there are many ways to make a rootkit/worm/virus undetected by all those detector programs, it’s just a simple trick of changing the signature of the virus or/we and it won’t be detected.
Like wo_0t said, just dl an untouched ISO confirm the md5 AND SHA/SHA256 with keys with the keys posted on the MSDN/Micros0f7 site to be sure.

With XP that’s going to be hard since it’s such an old OS. However, I still have my Windows XP Professional SP2 CD from back in the day. It’s pure, untouched, unadulterated, and undiluted. It’s only 603 MB (lol compared to Vista and Win 7). Even better, I have a volume license key to go with it that requires no activation.
As for Windows 7, I have untouched Ultimate 32-bit and 64-bit RTM DVD ISO images DVD’s direct from MSDN/TechNet.
32-bit (x86) Windows 7 Ultimate RTM 7600.16385 English Retail

You can always tell the genuine Win 7 from the bogus with the file hashes. However, with Win 7 you’re going to have to use a Slic 2.1 Modded Bios and activate it with the 7Loader 1.5 by Hazar (no loader, just the activation feature) to keep it activated permanently (Microsoft got slic lol) PM me and I’ll upload it to HF or RS if you really want it.

Nokia 6300 connecting to PC

February 15th, 2018

I have cables to connect my Nokia 6300 to PC and always worked great, I plugged in the cable and then selected Data Storage on my mobile, but since few weeks I do the same think, but my computer doesn’t seem to recognize new device plugged in…?
My USB drivers are all good, also tried to do anything on Disk Management but there is none USB showed…
Do you have any idea…?

Answer #1
No one..?
Answer #2
I had it happen with my N95 on a previous install, I can’t remember exactly how I fixed it though. Try uninstalling the Nokia Cable driver, reboot, and then reinstall it. If that doesn’t work, plug the phone in, and check in Device Manager to see if it has a yellow exclamation mark next to it.
Answer #3
Tried but no result

Browser takes for ever to open a page….

February 14th, 2018

Hello guys my browser Internet explores, takes long time to open any web page and also kinds of stop responding when Iam on a website.
what is the best browser or what you guys use ?

Answer #1
hey bro dont use internet explorer bcz ir ~love~ use google chrome or use mozilla firefox
Answer #2
Install a different browser and try that (Firefox for example). If it’s still slow it isn’t your browser. Then disable any anti-virus/internet security software you have installed and see how it goes because those slow things down a bit. If it isn’t that check your hardware card/adapter has an up to date driver. If it isn’t that then your modem/internet connection is not set up correctly (try resetting the modem). If it isn’t that check you are not in a blind spot (i.e. not receiving a strong signal if using wifi connection). If your modem is in another room you might need a wifi extender to get a decent signal.
Open Device Manager, click View and check ‘Show hidden devices’ then have a look and see if any ghost network devices are installed. If there are uninstall them …. and whilst you are there just go through the whole Device Manager list and uninstall any other ghost stuff that is installed.

Locked out of laptop

February 13th, 2018

IF it shows “0 Posts,” & no avatar, etc., it’s bec. I’ve been accidentally locked out of my account. They got me back in, (which I REALLY appreciate )but I’m not sure if my posts are showing or not. I didn’t have that many anyway, but better than zero. I’ve been a member for almost 8 years. Just sayin..)
————————————————-
Hey Guys,
I have a pretty nice laptop – Lenovo Y40 (16GB) – few yrs old. When I got a tablet, it’s really all I’ve used for ab. 2+ yrs. (+ my phone).
I’m trying to fire up this laptop, (NOT stolen – Swear to God), but Paranoid/OCD me put about 20 passwords on it. Seriously, I think there are 3. A while back, before I even started messing with this thing, I didn’t feel like dealing with putting all the Hiren’s stuff on a USB, so I just bought one on ebay. It has the regular Hirens, + Ult. Boot + Win 8(.1) drivers, + a cpl of others.
When I boot the laptop, I immediately get “System Password:” (I think I put a pass on the BIOS, the HDD, and the regular pswd.
(Try the “Sys Pswd” 3X, & it makes you reboot & try again.)
Unfort., I can’t even get past that immediate “System Password” – it comes up immediately.
I have COMPLETELY forgotten all 3 passwords ( ), & booting with the Hirens stick does ZERO – at least on the “System Password” (BIOS??). It’s like I have no USB in there at all (I was hoping at least a few tools would pop up. Nothing.)
I also tried booting with a bootable USB, with the entire Win8.1 OS on it. Nothing.
PLEASE tell me that I don’t have a huge brick, now. I just CAN’T reinstall Windows. I have 100’s of GB’s of real imp. files. I’ll try ANYTHING but that.
Anybody who can help, I’d REALLY appreciate it!! Thanks a lot!

Answer #1
From an IT background and when customers have issues with passwords I use Tenorshare Windows Boot Genius. I haven’t used Hiren’s for awhile since this other one does the job for me and gives me access.
Answer #2
It’s a bios password, and you can’t really remove those so easily these days (it used to be possible by simply removing the CMOS battery from the motherboard). Probably have to take it to a Lenovo service. But the data you can get off the HDD by connecting it to another computer and copying it.
Answer #3
I think it’s been sorted:
Guys- To anybody that looked (I was locked out of my Lenovo Y40 laptop - just a few minutes ago..), and tried to think of a solution, I REALLY appreciate it. Fortunately, I JUST got in. (Long story...)
I do thank everybody a lot, though. (I feel sure that y'all WOULD have come up with a solution.)
Thanks again!! (Whew!)
