Is all fair in pop-ups and war?

By kirk227 ·
I visited about 6 months ago and starting instantly I began getting about 50 pop-ups daily, in Russian. Not being fluent in the language I couldn't get rid of them. I spent days sifting through my registry. When I finally found where they hid the insidious files, I decided to unhide some of the hidden files. Somebody took serious revenge for it and destroyed my OS. I had to do a total format and I lost important stuff. The culprit wouldn't email me so I could have my say. He or she would write nastygrams and they'd pop up in word pad, note pad, you name it. I was the one who's computer was invaded. If a file is on my computer shouldn't I be able to do as I please with it? I didn't request anything. I only glanced at the site. Who is in the wrong here?

It seems about right for them to not respond about it.
They use Symantec's database? Wow, that makes me wonder if the AV companies use Symantec's database too.
