    My personal favourite but comes with this is my disclaimer and as a caution there is no Anti-Virus or Anti-spyware in the world that can resolve everything so be very careful alright:  

     

    I can go to search in less than 10 minutes to capture 2-7 of them from ( rated explicit sites and download cracks area ) just accept all possible prompts and click me here and there options that pop out your way to get the latest and most incidieous malicious codes over the  web.

  • Well, ofcourse it would - if you skipped the warning that OneCare has detected malware! That's if it actually detect those threats, and I'm pretty sure it does since you're already talking about a very dangerous crack-site.
