Unfortunately with World of Warcraft, it seems to be a very common problem that players find themselves with a hacked account. I think hackers like to attack WoW accounts because there is no legal repercussions from such an act. Unlike hacking a persons financial accounts, after hacking a WoW account, the hacker does not have to worry about the FBI showing up at their door.
Sure, WoW accounts are not as important as something like a banking website account, but players invest a lot of time in their WoW toons, and it would certainly be very unpleasant. Blizzard does seem to help players restore their items and gold lost, but I’m sure this is not guaranteed.
Keep in mind these are only tips to follow. Even following this advice does not mean an account is invulnerable, but every bit of vigilance helps.
Keep in mind, by taking these precautions the risk of a hacked account is certainly less, but not impossible. Always approach everything on the internet with caution and don’t trust much out there. These practices are not just specific to World of Warcraft either, it’ll help keep you safe on the internet in general.
If others have additional tips or ideas to share, please do. This is meant to help and I’ll try to update the list as I come across other precautions to take.
Happy questing :-)
You might get stuck on the Wii Lego Harry Potter Expelliarmus Lesson. You can end up in the room stuck on the tables unable to get off. I searched a bit and found the solution on this Lego Harry Potter walkthrough. The short of it is to press C to skip the video of Snape attacking the other teacher :-)
I haven’t played Starcraft in forever and decided to play it again. I went out and bought a copy which surprisingly is still in the store given its age. I was a bit worried about being able to get Starcraft to run on 64 bit Windows 7 but I found a solution on Youtube from JimmyRogain that works for me.
I thought this solution was very insightful. Nice fix :-)
I’m running Starcraft on 64 bit Windows 7 using a batch file like the one described in the video. I’ve included a sample batch file you can download from this link. If you are running 64 bit you’ll need to change the path to Program Files (x86) or change the path to your installation directory.
I hope this helps :-D Happy crafting :-)
These are the compatibility settings I use for the starcraft.exe file.
I haven’t tried the various permutations, but what is pictured seems to work for me.
