    sb has negged me with the following msg ,he was man enough to add his name
    "your thread is pointless"
    i always have a reason when i post sth,as for this one the reason
    why i posted this is that most people are unaware of extensions windows hides, CLSIDs being one of those extensions which has been exploited and used by viruses alot, i spent the last week searching the registry and .... to find these extensions well i found some of them but while searchin the net i came accross this tutorial and god i had wasted that much time doing sth someone had done already so i thought posting this here on ao could be a good idea,i know the tutorial is rather old and no way complete but it dose hold some good information!
    there are still extensions that can be exploited which this tutorial dose not cover this is another reason i had in mind when posting the thread, i thought this tutorial might be a good start for those curious about the topic.

    Excellent. This will come in handy when transfering files over an untrusted network

    Cheers.

    I am really sorry to everyone I inconvenienced everyone with what I said earlier, I didnt read it closely and I didnt see the link at the bottom. I didnt mean to give you bad antipoints. I was being a dickhead and I shouldnt have. I was just in a bad mood that day and I put my anger out on you. Sorry and I hope you forgive me.
