But I can't believe it! Everyone hypes about Skidrow yet he gave me Malware at first. I managed to delete the virus but weeks later he added Adware and a browser hijack which I had to remove with other software.

Hello,

I don't know Skidrow that much, but the few things that I downloaded from them were OK.

You might try going into "safe mode" and from there, start a complete scan of your computer. However, Windows 8 seems to work a bit differently than my Windows 7: http://www.howtogeek.com/107511/how-to-boot-into-safe-mode-on-windows-8-the-easy-way/

//EDIT

The thing with the "safe mode" is only a suggestion by me. Wink  Theoretically, that virus thing could "sit" more deeper in your computer; going into safe mode is then a possibility to get rid of the stuff completely.

And please, try not to use any swearwords, although I can understand your frustration. Wink

//EDIT 2

Can you also tell us what that download was - don't post a link here, but just tell me the name of that download.

I downloaded Black ops . And no the viruses are completly gone. I reset my PC. It's like how it was when I bought it except I have my pictures and that's it. 

 Sorry I'm new to the updated forum layout, I don't really like it. :[

Well, I'm happy to hear that ! What I always found interesting was that if you scanned a download beforehand, most anti-virus software don't seem to be able to detect virusses. But after extracting/installing the stuff (= when it's too late), there appears a "virus warning"...

OK, is there anything else I can help you with ?

No, I actually was told by my anti virus that it was found as "harmful" but I downloaded it anyway cause for 1. I've heard nothing but good things about Skidrow and 2. Most torrents can be found as "hacks" cause I was downloading the crack which my laptop saw as harmful cause of the way it's supposed to work. Anyways I do have a question and I don't mean to be nosy but do you by any chance know why TUN3R got banned? I ask because he has helped me with almost all of my problems and I saw him as a moderator, in fact I think he was a Sims 3 Moderator, not sure though but I'm sure if Lady Eldi got banned others would be asking why she got banned. I understand if you can't tell or if you don't know. I feel really bad asking cause I'm not one to butt into people business.

Hello,

Just to let you all know: Skidrow is a safe crack provider, but they do not have an official website - even though lots of website will try to convince you they are the official Skidrow website - and therefore anyone can upload a torrent/download on behalf of Skidrow.
You most likely got the virus of a fake website/download. But hey! You can always stick to Games4theworld. Very Happy
