Question about Computers & Internet
I have a problem, my DVD RW LG normaly burn DVD 8X and 16X in 8 min but from today write the same DVD's in 40 min, what can be wrong? I use Nero 7
I suspect you may have a root kit.
Have you inserted any SONY music CD's lately?
A root kit is the latest technology in computer warfare. It is a malicious program designed to be nearly invisible and to secretly re-configure your computer. There are two main streams of motivation for this type of a vicious attack.
1) Cyber crime to steal financial information etc.
2) Aggressive anti-piracy protection schemes from video game and software manufacturers, as well as the music and video recording industry.
The later is much more common, from companies like Star-Force, SONY and to a certain degree even ADOBE
The first step towards a solution is to scan your system with a good anti-virus/ anti-rootkit program:
AVG from Grisoft, black light, rootkit revealer, McAfee, Norton, Kaspersky, Win internals etc.
Be extremely careful, though, when downloading new anti-malware products, because many are rogue and contain their own malware.
Read the reviews, check the PC magazines, and scan the news groups before you download or install anything. There is a consensus on the internet about which manufacturers are reputable.
The reason I suspect a root kit, is because you problem is classic SONY or star force behavior, but there may also be numerous other reasons.
Hope this helps, Martin
