The original post are down about 20 threads that mentions a virus was able to enter CDG members' computers and cause havoc. I was wondering if any of you knowledgeable wizards can tell me (1) is it possible for malware or viruses [I don't know the difference] can penetrate past your nick or signon to identify your true identity, and, if so, how do you avoid that; (2) if you don't know how to fix your computer once it's fucked by a virus and you take it to a tech store like Best Buy or... can the guys there see what I've been looking at and posting and checking out...and are there any adjustments to avoid this? Or would I have to toss out the laptop? (3) I use an entirely different browser for this site (Firefox) than I do for everything else (Chrome) - does this provide any protection, or do the two browsers transfer data anyway? (4) CDG always provides the courtesy of telling me that all cookies have been deleted when I sign out, but none of the other websites I visit does that; does that mean I've been leaving some sort of trail? And if so, what do I do? Thanks guys for any wisdom you can provide!
