Default Need to corrupt my test computer.

I have built a computer for testing and fixing, now am after some dodgy sites/software or other good ways to corrupt it.

So if any of you guys can help me mess up this computer that would be helpful.

Its got xp and windows 7 installed and its online.

Try McAfee or Norton anti-virus software. That stuff has messed up every PC I've ever seen running it.

Go with what cboucher said. Better yet, get both and run a scan with them at the same time.

The AOL client is also a good recommendation if you like messing computers up. Install about 2 or 3 different versions, then try to uninstall.

I was going to say AOL client, but I didn't know if they were still around...

Delete a few system files, that should do it

Also, I see you're from Crewe - I use to live quite near there. Just outside Alsager.

If I just delete system files, I will know what the problem is, looking for more of a challenge.
