Satch: I also need to add other files to plugin dirs on C etc to get it all working.  I have full C: access now so am Larry :-)

The end effect of what you have done is malware can now freely disguise itself by replacing DLLs of legitimate programs.  As someone said what you should have done is elevated the rights of your text editor when needed, and you should have only changed the ACLs on your plugin dir.

Basically first drive by download and your entire machine is pwned.

I guess I've been lucky over the past 20 or so years then as I've always had full write access to my C: drives.  I like to live dangerously :-).

Sure, sure, Robot posing as Satch to lure us with your click bait.
