I personally NEVER USE DMZ, and every incoming/outgoing traffic is always logged by my router, and it has it's own traffic log/bandwidth usage log, so whenever I feel the network being slow or if I smell something fishy, I can always review the logs/bandwidth monitor in my router.

OK, time to show my ignorance, what is DMZ? I know it is different from my military definition, demilitarized zone.

Yup, that's it... Basically it's a rule in the router that will direct EVERY traffic that is destined to the router directly to the DMZ-ed host. It's the easiest way to be "directly connected to the Internet" through a router. This way you won't have any problem with closed ports (as long it's open in your Windows firewall), you don't need to make a forwarding rule. It's the easy way to get screwed, basically...

Hello Carl;

Hey, I ran across this in a router manual recently, and it seemed to explain the DMZ in a way that even I could understand.

Finally back!-router_dmz.png

Cheers!

Win 8 Release candidate 8400
 
 

OK so I had first encounter with a boat load of the buggers. I was setting up a dual boot partition (clean installed) when lo and behold defender pops up and starts to run. Now I know defender doesnt do that so I just hit cancel. Unfortunately the cancel button also spawned more nasties.

Now Im at the point where I cant open task manager, I cant go to any AV web site, and its just launching more and more processes.

I finally had a brain storm. Boot from the other partition and run a virus scan from that partition to the infected one.

After deleting, and removing 77 objects I had a clean (clean) partition.

Not feeling comfortable I re-formatted anyway.. Total time to back online cleanly was about 2 hours.

Always helps to have a win 7 installed on a USB stick. 22 minutes to install.

So be careful
