I just downloaded that program from the link and it has put lots of stuff on my start up can someone check if its a virus and if so remove it from the site.

You've downloaded what program from what link :whistle::)

He's talking about this weird prog from here that allows you to run .au4 files like executables. Not really usefull. Also name is confusing. It's not a virus (probly) but you should run msconfig.exe and remove the new stuff from the startup tab.

.. think when reading that thread and then seeing that its closed would be a good hint not to mess with it ...

Just my humble opinion :whistle:

By the way ... Why post in this forum ? not much of an example is it ?

Why doesn't the name change? JdeB, cant you delete the topic?

Only delete a topic when it contains malicious stuff and lock threads when people are acting stupid like happened.

I haven't looked at what he posted so don't know if it is harmful.. having said that ... nobody with the right state of mind just downloads something they find and run it ... right ? ( .. i already know the answer to that question ... )

Right... But if someone is stupid enough to download it, and it causes harm, is it deleted then?

:) Nah... they leave them up so the rest of the dumb asses can follow suit :whistle:

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

nobody reported it being malicious or causing harm .....

I am not clear if the OP did something wrong or if the downloaded program is the cause...
