    I do not want to sound ungrateful, but i have to ask how do we check our bios files made here so that they do not contain a virus. We hear now that people can put virus on bios and take control of computers on a low level.

    Like i said i do not want to sound ungrateful, i just would like to know to all that use the modded bios, how do you check for your security?

    Learn to mod a bios yourself if you don't trust anybody else to do it.

    Don't flash 'em..Better yet don't ask for a mod.
    I'm surprised, being this paranoid, that you are even connected to the internet. I don't meant to sound condescending, argumentative, or pugilistic, but...

    See what I mean? Of all the insinuations I glean from the post, ungrateful didn't even make the list.

    You should feel embarrassed not ungrateful..:eek::p

    I am always carrying a bottle of antibiotics when I mod a BIOS. Only way to kill those viruses.

    Just kidding. Nobody can take your system on a low level. If you don't know how to recover your BIOS don't do it. Tools you can find here are reliable and safe. My 2 cents.

    You have to trust the one who has made the mod.
    To exclude malicious code definitive you have to know how to mod a bios.
    Have you ever heard of a bios trojan? Somebody has detected here at MDL?


    If you don't trust, don't request..... ;)

    Do you want to be a zombie and join my Botnet?:D

    I'd just like to add one HUGE thank you to ALL of the modders and everyone that does SO much to help us all. :)

    Not to trust any of them is unthinkable. Who would spend so much of their time to help the community if not from the best of motives. :rolleyes:

    Thank you all again.
    David.

    if your motherboard is not from intel you can use a little tool and mod your bios for yourself

    hahaahha...:D
    This is the second thread strated with the same motives since the first time I visited this forum.
    And as Yen stated, there are so many mods done here at this forum for so many people and none of them has reported a malware.

    Feel free to ask for a mod without any concern...
    The modders here are doing their best for no fee at all, just for the satisfaction that they helped some one and made this wolrd a better place for all of as.

    Petar...;)
