So here are some things that you need to consider before you get offended.
- You are a newcomer to these forums, and you do not associate yourself with any identity that the "regulars" here may be predisposed to trust.
- Your first post encourages people to download a rather large executable file, for free, that they are not able to review the source code of.
- The overall theme of these forums may tend to attract people who have less-than-savory intentions. Indeed, StankDawg purposefully encourages a neutral stance on information to allow for open discussion. Such an environment will, by its very nature, attract people who are looking to do naughty stuff.
My original comment about the rootkit came loaded with the snark and cynicism that is more or less a given amongst IT professionals, hobbyists, hackers, and even "crackers" in this day and age. It was less of a direct accusation, and more of a general commentary on the trustworthiness of relatively random, anonymous downloads.
I have no reason to believe that you would include a rootkit or any type of malware in your program -- but -- I also have no reason to believe that you would not. I did not download or evaluate your application in any way; I was merely making a statement that, in general, anyone who would simply download and run an un-trusted, pre-compiled program because someone on a hacker forum told them it was safe would very likely get what was coming to them.
Most visitors here can and do think for themselves... in fact, that is one of the reasons why I enjoy the forums here. I don't believe anyone who frequents these forums would extend any more trust to you than I did.
For what it may be worth, this is not meant to be a personal attack. The chances are very good that your program is as you describe, and that you have put several hours of honest work into it with the hopes of someone finding it useful. But you must understand that you have not come to a place (as it were) where people are going to be in the habit of trusting strangers bearing candy. It's just the nature of the game that we play.
I do wish you success with your program, in whatever way you hope it comes.
