  Hi Mike,
  Man sorry that you have to reinstall Windows again! Well, I'll warn others. 
Guys just stick to Sound Forge and/or Wave Pad or Total Recorder. God bless.

        Hello everyone,


        I would urge you all to be very careful when downloading and installing 
new software, especially if claims are being made that might sound too good to 
be true. It seems a direct threat to blind computer users may be "in the wild". 
Please review the facts listed below and avoid this Audiomagic trojan horse 
program at all costs. 




          a.. Fantastic claims of a new accessible sound editor may be too good 
to be true.

          b.. The e-mail address is "jokerdog02@xxxxxxxxxxx". 

          c.. The domain name is roachhost.com.

          d.. The software has already been reported to have crashed several 
computers by removing critical Windows system files!

          e.. We at Blind Access Journal received thousands of worthless blank 
e-mails from roachhost.com in December of last year.


        In late November of last year, I accepted a person's claim that he had 
found a way to defeat Google's visual verification to make it accessible to 
blind users. I downloaded and ran an executable file that promptly trashed not 
only my computer, but also all the data on a backup drive connected to another 
computer on our network! Watch out my friends!
