    Hi guys and dolls
    G&T here all new to this so please be gentle on us lol....
    Just got the psp 3 days and donâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢t have have clue how to use it lol..
    How ever saying that we got some games (backup ones) with the down grader on it but when running them on pc it found a virus on the disk the virus was from the down grader so I email the bloke and this is what he said

    There needs to be a file on the disk which shows as a virus on the disk donâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢t worry its not harmful, the psp is not made to be downgraded and is illegal to copy games. On the disks is a down grader as u may know (disk 1) this file is an illegal psp file and shows as a virus, its not harmful but needs to be like this, U buy any disks elsewhere and they will be the same, its not the games its only the down grader on disk because it in a way runs as a virus to downgrade software. It is in no way harmful to your PSP or PC or anything you run it on. There are many Trojan viruses which are harmful but of course some are not. Thanks.

    so donâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢t know how true this is so any of u peeps know can ya let us know as we donâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢t want to used it on psp and find it bugger the thing up
    tks G&T

    The downgrader does show as a virus, even thought it is safe for the psp. There are some potentially dangerous files out there that will kill your psp permanently so make sure you are getting your files from a trusted source (I recommend www.pspupdates.com and www.psp-hacks.com) but never get software for the psp from p2p networks. Thats just asking for trouble. Hope that clears up a bit for you, but if you have more questions let us know. You should also use the search button as this has been discussed here before. Welcome to pspmod G&T!

    EDIT: Heres the another thread on the topic i found with the search button and typing in "virus"
    Before you post please
