The 'solution' appears to require you to tamper with a Windows system file.   I would hope that my security software would pick this up and take action, although presumably one could instruct the security software to ignore this particular file.

I did think of adding - Keep your nose out VileReynard but knew it would be just a waste of time as you would just troll as usual

I provided a valid solution - call it trolling if it suits you, I don't care.
