Freebies from FileFront
« on: October 02, 2008, 01:38:22 PM »
I'm sure we all agree that FileFront beats the crap out of VilePlanet, and here's one of the reasons why! Three new free games are available for download: Area 51, Full Spectrum Warrior, and Rise and Fall: Civilizations at War.

Also, don't forget to check out the 101 Free Games 2008 available through FileFront.

Gah, I hate that I can't seem to get this to download from their site without a D/L Manager...Area 51 alone will take me 8 hours to download at my speed...

Well Bobdog, this is one download I can't thank-you for!! I started downloading "Area 51" and my anti-virus software went NUTS!!!  It detected something called 'Win32:JunkPoly(cryp). I'm using Avast AV and it scared the hell out of me when the siren went off and saying it detected a virus!! It's possible that it is a 'false positive,' but I kinda doubt it, so be careful when you download it. Man, all this time I thought we were friends and then here you go trying to give me a virus!! :lol: I know what it is....you're mad :redhot: because I defeated you Cats of Hell, isn't it??...huh?....Huh??? Yeah, I thought so!!! :onethumb:

Stubb, I think it's a false positive because a LOT of people in the comments section stated the same thing about from their copies of AVAST.

  From what little I know, it seems that Win32:JunkPoly(cryp) is a worm commonly put into free games by the developer to enable advertising. Some antivirus programs, like Norton, don't pick it up, Avast usually does. But it seems to be "harmless", more or less. I've gotten warnings about it in the past from my Avast, and Spybot S&D found and killed it a few times, which prompted me to look it up a while back.

   But bobdog is still probably to blame...somehow... :evil1:

Damn, does that mean I have to appologize to Bobdog??? :embarassed: Okay, here goes, Bobdog, I am truly sor...so...sorr...sor..., I JUST CAN'T DO IT!!!! Okay, let's try that again, I APPOLOGIZE Bobdog for thinking that you would try and give me a virus! I guess I was just experincing a 'senior moment.' Can you, will you ever forgive me for such a horrible accusation? If not, well that's okay because little did you know that I captured one of your cats during that raid a few months ago and I'm about ready to sell 'it' to Silver as roadkill!! NOW, will you accept my appology??? I thought so!!

So it WAS a false positive, huh? Okay, I'm going to try and download it again. Thanks for the heads-up Josh....I do appreicate it!! :onethumb:

Two words for you guys: Worst. Friends. Ever.



(Well, actually, that's three words, but I didn't think you guys could count that high!   :lol:  )

Seriously though, I had no problems with the download. I always save the program to my HD, and then run it later. Don't know if that makes a difference. Also, I've got McAfee as my main virus detector, and no problems with that. I also DL'd Full Spectrum Warrior and am almost done with Rise and Fall. Don't know if I'll like them, but when they're free, it's not such a big deal.

I re-started the 'Area 51' download again and, as expected, the sirens went off again!! This time, however, I just let it continue and I'm almost finished with it. Thanks Bobdog for the link and I shall humbly fall on my sword at your feet just to show you that all is forgiven......thank God for rubber swords, otherwise I may actually hurt myself!! :hammerhead:

LOL!! :lol: Whew!! Now that Orlo has captured Fluffy, we all can now enjoy a peaceful night's sleep!! OrlopRat, that has to be one of the cutest pictures I have ever seen! :onethumb:  Well Bobdog, now that the leader of the Cats of Doom, 'Kitty Bin Laden,' (AKA Fluffy), has been captured and placed under  'litter box' arrest I guess your 'kittyist' (cat terrorist) group will soon fade into oblivion, huh?  You should have known that since the mighty hunter, OrlopRat was assigned to the case, your days would be numbered!! At last, a hero has arisen....HAIL, HAIL ORLOPRAT!!!  Let's Party!!!!
