Bee Keeping Software; strange stuff
« on: September 21, 2007, 10:19:28 PM »
  Awhile back I got a free download of a beekeeping software. Works well enough, but today I saw something "odd". When I tried to open the software the tag didn't say the usual, but displayed the words " Distroy Me".
  With all the stuff on the internet, I'm paranoid of changes.
  Anyone else see anything like this?

I would be paranoid of that.  It's either a virus or someone hacked it just to be mean.

You need to check for the following:
Viruses
Trojans
Spyware
Data corruption.
