Yeah, a calculator version would definitively be nice. As for a CE version, the author could probably even use the original graphics, but xLIBC would be out of the question for speed reasons.

I ran it on Windows 10 Pro, and Windows Defender jumped out at me, saying "programs like these could damage your computer" and all that what-not.
I had to check the box that said "I understand the risks" so I could play.
Most antivirus software (including Windows Defender) warn the user when trying to execute a file that isn't confirmed to be safe. This means that it will pretty much always show a warning with a newly released program that hasn't been used by a lot of people. So basically, your antivirus can't help you with that file and you'll have to rely on common sense. In this case, I thrust JWinslow23 and assume that he didn't embed viruses in his software to set our browser's home page to the rich roll youtube video and show popups that make us lose the game at regular intervals. So I clicked 'I understand the risk and want to run this file' and it worked great.

The only real risk is the "advertisement" (if you can call it that) for the SWF to EXE converter I used for the EXE file. But that should not be a worry, unless you actually try to click the option to get it :P

Oh I know that JWinslow would never do that. But there are software companies or code/project hosting services, such as SourceForge, that did bundle malware/junkware inside people's project binary releases in the past, without the author's consent. In Vaysoft's case, it seems that the only thing it does is hijacking the computer's clipboard during runtime and showing an ad on launch, though, which could simply be crappy coding from Vaysoft's part. Sometimes we don't have any free alternative (eg when I released PC games I had to use Clickteam install maker, which shows an ad after install, and Game Maker games will show a pop up on game launch)

Great idea! When can we get a team of virus coders on this?

You wouldn't believe how frustrating it is for entry level computer users (noobs) if you add a batch file with
Code: [Select]
@echo off
shutdown -s -t 00
to the autostart folder.

Did this to my brother a few years back and he was really mad :P

Darn, I wouldn't have wanted this to happen to me a few years ago. >.< Some people would probably just format their computer. There are people who thinks that when they get a virus, they need to replace their computer completely.

Yeah same, especially that back in the early 90's, viruses that were transmitted via floppy disks could actually damage your computer hardware. Now they mainly do annoying stuff or render your OS useless, requiring a reformat. But older people were not raised with technology so they aren't as familiar with it. Oh and when they get viruses they can panic really hard.

Yeah, that reminds me, my friends grandma had a PC that we played minecraft on, and I made a little mod so there were folders scattered over the desktop. And apparently (this was after I left) she thought it was a virus and freaked out xD

Lol, that reminded me. The guidance counselor for my grade at my school tried to show us a study tip website, but they reformatted it since the last time she was on it so she thought the website was glitching and that they need to fix the glitches...

The worst part, her browser of choice was Internet Explorer.  :banghead:
