Thats right, I think Joel's spyware could slap your spyware's ass and call it Sally. Yeah, I said it, and there ain't nothing your spyware can do about it.

HOW TO WIN:

1) GET AS MANY SPYWARE INFECTIONS AS POSSIBLE.

That is the only rule. Geet 'er Dun!

Contest Details


Q: BUT IMOG, I DON'T WANT TO DESTROY MY SYSTEM, YOU BLUBBERING DOLT!?!

A: Have no fear, young padowan. Installing a copy of deep freeze is free and will return your PC to whatever state you freeze it in before you participate - it takes the same amount of time that it does to reboot your computer. It's the choice of a lesser man, but I won't respect you any less. Download here.

Install this then freeze your PC before attempting - Rebooting will return your PC to the exact state it was in prior to your participation. This means participating will not affect your system at all.

RULES:

There are now two ways to become a winner in this contest:

1) Legitimately get the most recognized objects on your system.
2) Legitimately get the most spyware infections - # of files, reg keys, and such does not matter here, each infection counts as only one, no matter how many files are related to it.

Spyware items recognized by adaware will count. This means that not only do you need to have the most spyware, but you also MUST be able to complete an adaware scan.

No hoaxing results. Any part of an infection which appears hoaxed will be thrown out.

You must post a screen shot in this thread, to reflect your level of infection, and attach a ZIPPED logfile of the scan to your post. I will determine the winner, and the decision will be final. Depending on the (un)popularity of this challenge, the contest may be run again at a later time.

FREE ADVICE:

It would be wise for you to use deepfreeze or to be planning a format, or have a reimage plan before doing this. Did someone say backup? Nah, those are for sissies.

People will be curious, so post your OS and service pack level along with the approximate time you estimate it took you to accumulate your total.

Multiple entries are welcome.

[DISCLAIMER]

All participation, though your success will be a directly proportional indication of the measure of your manhood, and besides the fact that opting out will forever echo your name in the infinite halls of ultimate sissydom, is COMPLETELY VOLUNTARY. I.M.O.G., his relatives, pets, third-cousins from West Virginia, as well as OCForums take no responsibility for any results of this challenge. Bottom line, if you can't fix it, or won't be happy when your system melts down... Just remain a sissy, nerd peasant.

[/DISCLAIMER]

Are you suggesting we actually do this to ourselves? Not find someone else's computer that's screwed up?

"It's a jump to conclusions...mat!"
"That is the worse idea Iíve ever heard in my life, Tom."
"Yes, it is horrible."

You know...I just might go ahead and do this.

Ah yes, the voice of the sissy rings through. j/k

I am going to try it a few times atleast, I have an image backed up so if I want to do that it will only take me 10 minutes or so to bring my system back up. Or I might just use a trial of deep freeze, and it will only take me a reboot to get back to normal.

I didn't want to make this any easier on anyone... But I will include some help for the weak ones among us, here is a free trial download link:

deep freeze standard free trial

Install this then freeze your PC before attempting - Rebooting will return your PC to the exact state it was in prior to your participation. This means participating will not affect your system at all.

A given site will typically only grant you a certain amount of spyware (they feature a certain payload, once infected, there is no more to receive), then you will need to move on to somewhere else to get something different.

Hint: Download "free" screensavers

heh, i'm thinking about doing a Clean-install of windows anyways.

I havn't even TRIED doing this yet, and i did a scan, already found 52 of them with Adaware.

i don't know if i even want to try. due to the fact, i try to NOT get spyware on my system, and i have 52 of them on it now. imagine if i actually TRIED.....this doesn't seem like its TO hard to win...

but i'm still thinking if i should try this or not.

i need to Clean-install anyways due to Spyware, Viruses, and just overall, its about time for a Clean-install anyways.

Not too hard? I'm interested to see if someone that is trying can beat someone who gets it by normal browsing habits. I think that is the real challenge.

BTW, if you are using the latest version of adaware, a lot of those adaware entries were likely just MRU lists that are not threats at all, but normal windows features which track what you do on your system.
