What was some malware you grew up with on your family computer /g/?
Pic related seemed to be pretty common
The AOL browser. Back in the 90s I'd try to get my parents to use Netscape or IE and their reactions were as if I had come out of the closet as a pedophile. My mom would be crying and my dad would be screaming at me about AOL is number one. Around 2008 they got a new computer and I refused to install AOL on it. My dad refused to touch the computer for months but my mom begrudgingly got used to using Firefox. They still have a dusty stack of AOL CDs just in case I'll see the light one day and reinstall AOL for them. My mom accesses her AOL email through Firefox now. It says "You've got mail!" out loud so that's good enough for her. The marketing for AOL back in the 90s must have been some serious mind control shit.
Got alot with Limewire and Ares. I remember downloading a video on Ares called something like "Hot 13 doggydad.avi" and it was some old man fucking this really young girl but back then it never occurred to me how illegal it was i used to always watch porn of 15 year olds getting fucked from limewire and ares. they were so jam packed of sick shit. Anyone remember those Chechen beheadings where there's like 5 of them getting beheaded and ones younger and hes crying and screaming then when they're cutting into him you can hear all the blood gurgling?
Norton Parental Controls. Yeah it didn't work and just ate up the computer's vitals. Disabled it from control panel to check out the site 'juggworld' that kid at lunch was talking about, and started my journey into computers.
