    Refer to this site for some information. http://www.bgsu.edu/offices/its/tsc/pdf/virus.pdf
    If you want to just protect your documents, a macro virus is the best bet which could wipe out your HD. What u could do is to go download one, then put it in a macro. Also, refer to this site in case u need help to protect yourself againts one: http://www.bris.ac.uk/is/services/co...s/log_bomb.htm

    Dark Phoen1x decided to make one of his ****-headed posts which magicly turned this stupid thread into 'one huge pile of stupid stinking bullshit'.

    First of all how the ****ing hell is spreading malware going to protect your documents? Second of all I could just open it in normal text through a text-editor such as notepad then you know what would happen next? I would be able to view alot of the contents if not all of the file then I'd laugh at your lack of scripting skills and what you call "Protecting" a document. There are however some encription methods in some macro viruses but most of those are shity anyways...

    P.S. danseur35 if you want your files to be deleted so badly then why don't you just run a few commands through command promt then delete them yourself you incompetent little lamer.

    somebody didnt eat their cornflakes this morning...

    stop watching movies like Swordfish

    Just put ****ing passwords on them, or anything else, theres millions of ways to protect your "files"

    and if you want them to be deleted when someone hits on em, secure your box or delete them now. Malware for protection, lmfao.

    Just encrypt your data well enough so no one will be able to decrypt it. Installing logic-bombs/virus/whatever is useless because if any one with half a brain comes after your data the first thing they'll do is back up your hard drive to some read only media before they even turn on the computer.
    Its not software piracy. Im just making multiple off site backups.

    What you trying to protect there Dan.... ?? Your Porn ? LOL. Sorry, had to say that. But seriously though, lock your **** with the tools you got around you like MacGyver would yo. Go to DOS and make a dir that has extended ascii chars in it's name, then when someone tries to open them through windows, they will be denied access or any information to that folder and it's contents if done properly. Give the dir Read-Only, Hidden, and System attributes. Then, make sure your OS is setup to not view hidden or system files. You said that you were a newbie so I gave you a newbie way of securing your stash, using a bit of trickery. Use like (alt-255) "win" (alt-255) or something, lol. Don't make the name more than 5 chars long though or your stuff can be accessed through DOS via the DOS 8.3 filenaming scheme if the extended char was only put at the end (in some cases). Don't know if this works on XP but I know that this works great on 95/98/ME. A batch file could be created to lock and unlock the folder to allow access to or deny access to the contents on-the-fly. Here's how you'd do it:

    "Lock.bat"

    @echo off
    ren C:\hi hi
    attrib +r +s +h C:\hi
    cls
    exit

    "Unlock.bat"

    @echo off
    attrib -r -s -h C:\hi
    ren C:\hi hi
    cls
    exit

    Of course it wouldn't be wise to name these "Lock" and "Unlock" but I just used these to give you an example. Make a folder named whatever you want without the extended chars... like "hi" then put it in a physical drive & directory of your choosing that you want your stuff hidden in. Then, match the name of the folder and it's parent directory location to fit these 2 batch files accordingly. Just plug these into DOS's "edit" program, make these changes, and you're good to go. When in edit, lastly, change the "" extended chars and replace them with fresh "" extended chars by holding down alt and typing 255. This is the most important part or they won't work right. Make sure to save these 2 separately with .bat extensions. You could hide these files too, I would, but you'll also have to hide the 2 generated files that come with these two... the .pif files that correspond to these programs storing their information. Either way, this ony takes two seconds to pull off, no data loss required. You'd be surprised at how many people would be tricked by these techniques. You could change the .pif icons if you wanted too but if they are hidden and have inconspicuous names that look legit then it wouldn't matter if they have ms-dos shortcut icons or not. These .pif files will only be generated if the batch file's properties are altered, such as making them hidden or changing other outside pieces of info after they've been created. When you need access just enable hidden and system files to be seen and run your unlock batch file. When you're done, run your lock batch file and enable hide hidden and system files again. This is what I call the "Toy Box" technique. Put it back how you found it.

    Sometimes it's the simplest things in life that people overlook. Believe it or not a lot of novice - capable users don't know about this trick, as simple as it is and as long as it's been around. Better then a macro-virus, and you could say that you did it yourself. If you're running an OS that's compatible with this little trick you might want to consider it. Happy hiding................... or destroying, whichever you choose.

    Authenex A Key - Demopack
    Free A Key - This is a a USB key that encrypts files. It is free. And to open a file it requires the unique key and a password. No to Keys are alike. Takes a month to get shipped to you, but is a much better idea than malware.

    I think that i am dumber for even reading this original post.
    Insert whitty tagline right here.

    I think what your looking for is a product called "Deadmans Switch". I believe it is still a free download from HERE.

    Dead Man's Switch" is basically a system that, if not reset by a given time, will automatically carry out a series of tasks, such as posting messages to websites like Ars, sending e-mails to loved ones (or hated ones), and encrypting or destroying sensitive files (*cough* pr0n *cough*).
    If you choose to use this software, be warned:

    "I went on vacation, and forgot all about the switch," said, a Web designer from Los Angeles. "When I returned home, the program had posted, 'So I guess I'm dead' messages to all the newslists I subscribe to, and destroyed all my adult entertainment files."

    Cheers:
    DjM

I was giving him INFORMATION about **** like that which that was exactly wtf he was askign for...he was askin for a program which could erase his ****in HD in case sum1 try to get to it...how the **** do u think u'r gonna do it? fairy dust?...next time take your head out of your ass first before you post like a ***** or go **** yourself. OH BOO HOO go ahead, ban me too.... I'd rather be banned that deal with shitheads like you The|Specialist . Its called an opinion, and if u dont agree with it...u can say so nicely.... AND IN NO WAY DID I TELL HIM TO SPREAD MALWARE. NOW GO **** YOURSELF!!
