I've got The Bonobo-Activation-Server Blues

Hello there everyone!

Sorry for not introducing myselfin the proper forum; actually, as I must ask my emergency question now, I'll intriduce my lovable self soon. You see, I have only a few minutes left on this Library Computer, as it took me1/2 an hour to realize that this is the BEST!! site for me. Or so this is my present understanding eh. Ohhh, ok, ok, now you know. I don't know why all the hosers say I'm slow just because I'm a Canadian eh. I mean, I have other reasons too. Anywhere from head traumas, to my High school days when I learnt how to smoke things that we never smoked at the Private Christian School I went to. No NO, I'm 40 now, and even though my Doctor suggested for me to smoke Legalized Marijuana for pain, I told him no way Dr ..., too paronoid! Then the anti went up, so I split and got myself a new Doctor.

PLEASE help me anyone that can! I just spent most of my few minutes trying to introduce my Canadian humor eh. And yes it's true. Humor may not be the original way going back to the early Brits. But we have our reasons. It just looks so much better.

I have Bonobo-activation-Server in my precious, well it was a precious dual system that a complete Newbie like me with the only skills of one with a decade of Windows. Plus remember the Canadian issue eh. I need to somehow dissconnect bonobo from my Ubuntu system. Even using my 8.10 which I now have to use, in my CD DRive, they still are hooked up to me, using my memory, partitions, drives, stealing my root.

Please help!
Times gone.
Davy Jones

Hi, JubuntuJones! Welcome to LQ!

Could you please shed some light as to why you've concluded that the bonobo-activation-server process is engaged in malicious activity? When you say that "they" are hooked up to you, who are "they", and how do you know they are hooked up to you? Also, what exactly do you mean by "stealing my root"? Are you saying that your box has been rooted? If so, please share with us the evidence you've based your conclusion/suspicion on.

If you look at some of the previous LQ threads regarding suspected/confirmed compromises, you can get a good idea of what kind of material is most useful to members who are able and willing to help you. If you still have doubts regarding what information to post, members can walk you through that as long as you provide a clear, complete description of your issue.
