Subject: I think I got a virus from steamunlocked
2 days ago I installed a game off SteamUnlocked because I forgot it wasn’t safe and today I saw a post about SteamUnlocked and bloom.exe and later my file explorer starting freaking out and my mouse was being weird and like wouldn’t scroll and my laptop was being loud and hot. I was really paranoid so later I nuked it and reset it because there wasn’t really much I cared about on it and like 30 minutes ago I got windows reinstalled via usb and I did the normal things like debloat it and install a browser and while I was doing that and after it was loud and hot when I wasn’t doing that much. I closed all my programs and just on the desktop it was extremely loud. And the things with my file explorer where i would double click one thing then it would select a ton around it and open all of that was happening and on my browser it wouldn’t let me scroll. Am I extremely paranoid or is there something wrong?
Subject: How do I go about getting my own Wifi network from a pre existing one?/ getting my own access point?
I’m not sure where to really ask this question but I figured here might be a good space since most people on this subreddit know a lot about technology. Plus there’s always the legality issue. It also kinda correlates with piracy:
Anyways, I live in an apartment on school campus and want to run my own wifi network from the pre existing one. This is because the school wifi does not permit me to connect smart devices such as echo dots, google tv, and a couple other things that communicate and function through wifi. Additionally, I feel like it would be safer altogether if I’m ever pirating anything even though I use a VPN, and I’ve set up my torrent so it can only run through the VPN. I’ve already tried to whitelist the MAC address for them all through the school website. However in order for the MAC address whitelist to work, the device has to be connected via Ethernet into the Ethernet port in the wall. Even then, the whitelist network vs the public wifi are two different networks.
So my question is does anyone know how I can create my own access point or wifi from a pre existing one? I know range extenders work but not really how to set this all up. I know that I would need to whitelist the MAC address of the extender and the plug that via Ethernet and have that make it’s own network. If anyone has done something like this in the past please lmk as I have a couple questions regarding what type of model router you used and how you went about the whole setup process and any safety concerns. Also other people in the building have already done this so the school isn’t really enforcing anything even though they say it’s illegal. Thank you in advance!!!
Subject: New (the site that shall not be named) drama over at 1 3 site in their Stray release
Just check out how blatantly the one site that shall not be named supporters defends itself claiming it has never repacked drm/malware in its files previously and thereafter the drama that follows...
I really hope more people are wary of their files and thus are educated on why they should never download from them ever.
Subject: Sticky or FAQ for adding to a torrent site
Recently, I wanted to download this video. But none of the sites had active seeders.
So I bought the DVD and plan on using handbrake to convert to digital copy.
I haven't tried it, but I think all you need is to make an account on the site and then add the link. But I concerned about making the account and having me as the primary upload.
Is there any sticky, mega thread or FAQ that addresses this?
If not, is there anything I need to be careful of before adding the file to the site? Is there anything I should know before it add it? Perhaps I can give it to someone to upload instead?
I do seed files that aren't very active, but adding my own file to a site is another ball game for me.

Subject: Torrent stuck on downloading metadata, what can I do?
Subject: Would this work to circumvent Netflix Account Sharing? Will be willing to pirate my content from there if it doesn't work.
There is probably a way to circumvent Netflix's stupid fee for password sharing. I was thinking of using a OpenVPN server where the Netflix account is located then every device outside of the house would be able to access Netflix as long as they can access OpenVPN or Wireguard. If Netflix also asks for location I was also thinking of location spoofing too just to circumvent that as well which would limit the devices you can use to just android and ios based systems. In theory this would work and Netflix wouldn't be able to detect suspicious activity.
Subject: Help with encoding settings
Hello all! I am starting a project to buy, rip, and upload all of the box sets for a certain long-running TV show that does not have any quality torrents available publicly. My question is: what's stopping me from going to an upload from my favorite torrent group and just copying their encoding settings? Wouldn't that produce a file that's the same quality? Am I missing something? Please help!
Subject: I can't install any game from a Codex installer, I keep getting the ISDone.dll error
I've tried restoring the ISDone.dll in System 32, I tried installing without opening anything else during the installation, tried to increase the virtual memory, and I have more than enough space in my SSD. Does anyone knows other possible fixes for the ISDone.dll error? Or where else can I get CODMW Remastered. Codex seems to be the only option but that installer just doesn't work for me.

I am wondering what's methods some of you may use to save images from websites that don't allow the saving of images featured on the site. The only way I can think of is screenshotting so please let me know if there are other methods, as screenshotting each image is quite tedious!

Subject: Is it still piracy if..?
So, I've always heard if you download a movie, you better have proof you've bought it at least.
Not saying I pirate anything, torrent, or do anything of that nature... But I had a hypothetical thought...
If you own a 480p version of a movie, and download a 4k version of the same movie...
That would still be considered piracy right? Because when you purchase the movie, you basically get a "license" to watch the movie at that quality/format. So at what point would it be considered legal or at least not scrutinized.
It's not really that I care, I was just curious and Google didn't understand what I was trying to ask 🙃
