C++ is a pretty simple language to pick up on (for the most part)...might not even need to start with VBS. depending on your ability to learn programming; writing applications (.exe, .bat, .vbs) wouldn't be too difficult. at least the part that deals with damaging a system (or helping! viruses don't always have to be damaging!). the biggest hurdle IMO is the transferring of the virus from original computer to the next host(s)and so-on-and-so-forth. :?

you have to have a pretty good understanding of the OSI model and the environment in which it will be used.

I would just love to know how to program in C++ or Visual Basic. Anything really. I suppose starting off with something simple would be the best way because I have a tendencey to get easily discouraged.
Maybe I'll start programming on my new system.

Problem is, I don't think it's free. Maybe the SDK kits but not the full version of where you want to do stuff on a bigger scale

I doubt that I'm going to buy any programming language. I'd like to see what I can get for free. If I really get into programming, then I might pay for something extra.
After I build my system, I'm going to put every penny possible into getting Lightwave 3D.

there might actually be TOO much there for you to choose from. i, personally, have used Crimson Editor before...and it worked pretty well i thought. (used it for java and visual basic, only reviewed code for c++ tho, but should work fine)

I have moved this here for review. Not sure if it violates any rules or not, in any case its close to that fine line...

Not really sure this violates the rules - quickly moved into a programming discussion.

Writing viruses is what I was concerned with. Don't need motherboards.org wrapped up with that!

Yeah but pointing someone to programming tools does not necessarily mean they are going to write virus'.
SOmeone who doesn't know how to code is a long ways off from writing virus'

Maye just a stern warning is needed in the post.
