Castlecops was...

A lot of us I guess recall the good antimalware works they did.

And of course by now most know they left the web after many attacks of denial of service.

One person plead guilty of sicing at least 7000 bots on them.

I have read that a lot of thier crew is over at http://spywarehammer.com/

I remember castlecops from when l first came online in 2005 and later reading about their problems.
Gonna look into the story of the person who got done for bots, thanks for that darth.

As we`re going back in time, how did this fare for you, mate: Well prices must be falling on low end desk tops. Yesterday, I bought a new Compaq Presario Vista Home Premium for $245. The tower. keyboard and mouse. CPU AMD Duo-Core Athlon 2.2 Ghz with 1 Ghz of ram. HD 160. Rats I hate to have to learn Vista. Used to XP.

Above was yr Post 20 Sept 2008! I had a Compaq(laptop)and it was a disaster.
Love,Light and Peace

Hello my friend, good to see you on. Very good for you on getting a vista machine.

For some reason, I always come back to XP. I came aboard the web in 2006 with a used compaq. Did'nt what cookies on a pc was back then.

Good luck with your Vista machine. I had one, upgraded it to Windows 7, did'nt use it much. Always I seem to be on XP. Old habits die hard.

Off topic: I hope you get that job in the north.

Opps,I wasn`t very concise was I.
The Post content was yours from 20 Sept.2008 when you bought a Compaq.

I don`t have a Vista anything.
