Thanks,

Best regards,

Happy returns,

Let me add my name for no good reason,

Edit: as for "stay on topic", the feedback you're asking for is: "Please stop using TN for SEO purposes."
I am reminded of that "Computer Professor" dude that showed up a few months ago bringing his wisdom to us all by describing how best to introduce windows to end users. Remember that?

Hi Xander,

Do you know how ridiculous you sound? I'm not obligated to contribute to any discussion.

I'll ask you once more, can you please stay on topic? Thanks

Your topic is "feedback". I'm providing it to you.

You're not obligated to contribute to any discussion. Similarly, nobody is obligated to respect your choice to do so.

No, you're not obligated to think only of yourself and avoid contributing to anyone else's threads. But, hey, you've accomplished that. You have succeeded in posting newbie tutorials on a repair professional's forum and then looking to increase your site traffic by asking for "feedback" on tips like "run hitman or format".

Brian, I think you are talented at combining and assembling content found on the web in an attractive package. Even with the omissions and incorrect information, it's presented in a pleasing way that many inexperienced users would find helpful. If they run into problems, there are many other sites or professional technicians available to straighten them out.

I think you're missing an opportunity, though. You should submit your "writing" to eHow.com and turn it into a career. http://www.demandstudios.com/ehow-writers.html

On topic enough?

Well said. If the OP did produce that Ransomeware article, there are other, more appropriate places where he could submit his work for feedback.

Hi altrenda,

Thank you, but I'm not interested in submitting my work to eHow.

Can you please point out the "omissions and incorrect information?"

To use hitmanpro to remove any infection you have to use the one time activation, which then leaves a nag screen on startup. You can tell your readers how to remove that.

Also most bits of ranson/scareware will move your start links and hide your desktop icons. Not telling your readers how to fix this issue is an injustice since they will have a computer that they won't know what to do with.

And these usually will come bundled with a rootkit and/or backdoor trojan. Having your readers believe that they are safe because the obvious infection is gone is extremely unethical.

I added a mention to my malware removal guide.

Closing this. The articles target end users, it touches on our no advertising rules and since these articles are being developed to help end users, it takes away work from computer technicians.
