Just thought I'd add this. When you guys downlaod stuff for FSX , sometimes there is a lot of "hidden software" stuffed in with what you are downloading, such as untrackable spyware, etc.
Some of this stuff does nasty things to operating systems

Two good friends of mine are professional IT guys, and always tell me "be very careful" of what you are downloading.
I once downloaded a scenery file for FSX from some website.
It really messed things up!
My buddy Joe ran one of his special tool discs on my PC and it located a bunch of nasty crap, spyware, etc and cookie files.
So he used another discs that goes in and deletes all that crap!

It will not show up in your program files or your installed programs.


I have one of his discs he made a copy of for me, and when I down loaed Sky Drive, it sent me an alert that some nasty crap was coming onboard via Sky Drive, so I deleted sky drive

There were 138 files not even related to Sky Drive that it found, 29 of them were some nasty spyware files

I told Brad about it and he told me Microsoft has not updated Sky Drive in a long time and some hackers have attached some nasty stuff to it.

Ed,

SkyDrive is not a program but a storage system as part of Hotmail. I use it for clients and friends because it gives you mass storage in cyberspace. So if you got anything from Skydrive it was from something you or someone else loaded into Skydrive.

Thats like saying you buy a new blank hard drive and after loading all your own software on it, it becomes corrupted and you say the drive must have come that way. No it is what you put in it. So watch and screen all programs and data before loading it. You can run a Microsoft essentials scan on a downloaded piece of software before accepting it.

Yes there is a lot of "crap" out in Cyber space, tread lightly and only download what you really need and scan it first.

We mourn the loss of Fred Cabanas, a good friend of the Keystone Heights Airport. He died in a crash of a Citabria yesterday while filming an Extreme Video for Mexican Television.

Got my AI planes somewhat working. After they land they can't figure out how to get to parking lot without going all the around the runway. I think there must be something in those yellow lines that the AI planes read to get from point A to B
