    Hi Andy,

    Welcome to the wacky world.

    There is no fix for the hd4000 problem and there is not likely to be.
    The hd4000 was designed for corporate display and for movies.
    Cheers
    Derek

    hmmmm... I don't enter a lot of personal information and I don't post frequently so I must not be worthy of trust either? But as far as his fix goes it works. I tried it and when everything else failed this worked.

    As far as infecting computers isn't that what anti-virus programs are for? If you aren't running one, and are on the internet then you are just asking for trouble.

    Correct, but it's a matter of degree. I don't completely distrust you, but I don't entirely trust you either.

    Good to know, particularly if that is all the .exe download actually does. BUT, how do you really know that is all it did? There could be malware there that only activates months later and your PC could later become part of a botnet and you wouldn't know.

    ...And UAC. Neither are perfect. The most insecure part of the entire computer system is the nut behind the keyboard.

    AV programs are not the be-all and end-all. Even AV programs get updates to their binaries as vulnerabilities in them are found, and malware can be smart enough to know which brand of AV it is facing and what to do about it.

    So when a stranger wanders into the room and dangles a free carrot on a stick, points us to a file sharing site without any information about the author(s) of said software or how the software works, then ducks out again, yeah I get suspicious as would other people around here.

    Sure, you can google the term "jackfuste" and get some hits on gaming related sites going back some years, but is it the same person? I don't know.

    I am a computer support specialist, and a networking technician with over 35 years experience with computers, I am also an admin at Elvas Tower tasked with backing up and updating their website. Just because I value my privacy and spend more time working to support my family doesn't mean I'm not trustworthy. If someone forgets to zip a file doesn't mean he is out to harm you. Charles and a few others are so very judgmental. Everyone is either out to steal their work or to destroy their computer. Where I am a Microsoft Certified Security Professional I know that the only secure computer is one that is powered off with holes drilled in the hard drive, but with the proper safeguard in place the risk to any computer is minimal. I also know that there is nothing that can't be fixed with a computer.

    What really gets me is the train sim community claims they are friendly and are here to help one another but then make accusations about someones motive very chance they get.

    What I was trying to say is just because someone is new and leery about sharing private information doesn't mean they have bad intent. How would you feel if when you were new, someone questioned your motives when you were trying to help others.

    jdgremsjr,
    You posted your original post at a time when another individual who has expressed his intention to destroy ET and had used someone else's username to post on this forum. That is why I was questioning who you were.

    Charles, You are mistaking, I am not jackfuste, but understand, that just because you are new, or are guarded with your privacy doesn't make you bad.

    What I was trying to say like jackfuste, I don't share much personal information on here, and I don't post here often because I'm busy with work, school, enjoying the train sim hobby, or whatever. Your assumption that just because jackfuste is new and he forgot to zip his file must mean he has bad intent. I think you words were why should I trust him? My question is why would you jump to that conclusion? Based on what evidence did you have that there was any malicious intent?

    I was in need of such a solution. I took the proper precautions, in a test environment and discovered that it in fact was a solution to my problem.

    Not everyone is out to get you. A word that comes to mind is paranoid. Not everyone you come across is the person that is causing problems. I know about the problem and I know that he wants to destroy the community, but I think alienating those that just may be trying to help isn't the correct way to handle the situation.

    Paranoid?!

    There used to be a rather funny old joke "Just because your Paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you"

    To suggest that folks caution to installing an .exe recommended by someone they know little or nothing about is Paranoid is just plain stupid! When malware is spread it usually spreads BECAUSE folk are opening files that they don't know or only think they know the origin of!

    Sadly you have attacked a number of folk here who have become long time supporters of the hobby. They've invested time and effort into sharing stuff and helping people. As Charles points out there are unfortunately some very sad individuals out there who either through mental illness or plain anti-social behaviour "get off" on destroying things! Hardly surprising in todays society when many games celebrate the human races ever increasing ability to destroy?!

    Train and Flight Simming are about CREATING things. Maybe these sad individuals are frustrated by their own lack of ability to create so turn their efforts into destroying the creativity of others. Ring any bells in the real world yet?

    So it is hardly surprising that folk with a heavy investment in time and their hobby should be SENSIBLY cautious? Is it?

    There's no obligation to share personal information here. If you look at the profile page you can choose what folk can see or even if you provide information at all. This is further reinforced by the PM system which allows folk to contact one another without divulging e-mails for instance? Even you have entered a location!

    Obviously with NO information and a post linking to an .exe right at the time when the hobby is under attack by some muppet is going to draw suspicion from most.

    Maybe I'm an old cynic? ...but in 1939 on both sides of the pond we faced threats that were met with appeasement. In 1945 after millions had died and hundreds of towns and cities had been reduced to rubble it ended with two Atom bombs.

    You think anyone who knows their history is paranoid for being cautious ?

    It appears that you didn't trust the poster/software either.

    I'd call it sensibly cautious?

    I'm also reminded in regard to the earlier post a parody of a well known English Poem. "If you can keep your head whilst all those around you are losing theirs, then maybe you misunderstood the situation"

    Kipling's "If" for poetry fans BTW.
