WHAT?! BS, i doubt there are viruses for wii he probably got an infected file by diwnloadibng of people who are lablled as not trusted (purple skull) LB cannot truly damage your wii, if his wii got damaged then he damaged it via bricking it

the letterbomb site is virus free, unless his AV pointed the file to be infected in whcih case there is a chance that it's a false positive

get a memory backup application, like wanioko memory manager, homebrew browser should have something like that, now backup ALL of your games including MH3, now format your wii, install again HBC, play MH3, you wont be banned anymore, but you will lose all your friends.

Okay so I was hoping to ask a question because something weird happened to me today.

I loaded up my MHTri data that I haven't played in the last few months. When I got on one of my characters, she had a Soulbreaker (G) that she shouldn't have had. She's only HR 3 so obviously this was a shock to me. So I tried it out offline to see if it was a glitch or something because I had no idea why it was there or where it came from. Afterwards I decided to go online to check something or other and I hadn't removed said Soulbreaker and I was subsequently handed a 10 day ban. I checked my other character, he's only HR8, and for some reason, he has a Bastion Blitz in his inventory box. I'm guessing having this will also get me banned again if I try to get back online.

So my question is, how did this happen or how could this have happened? From reading the thread, am I correct to assume that just unequipping the switch axe and getting rid of both of them will let me play online without getting permabanned?

I've never used any cheats or hacks or whatever because I like to play legit so I honestly have no idea how this happened and I'd just like to know if simply getting rid of these items that I shouldn't have will solve the problem. Sorry for the long post, but this is really irritating because I don't even know how this happened and I would like to keep playing. So any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Erasing the items or not will let you play, after the 10 day period, all you need to do is wait until you are the appropiate HR to wield them.

YOu are the only one that uses your wii, or others have acess to it?, the only other thing i can think off is that a hacker somehow sent you the items online, IDK how

So then as long as I don't equip these switch axes online, I'm good? I could keep them until I'm the proper rank?

One of the characters is my girlfriend's and she said she went online once so I'm assuming that's where it came from. I'm not sure how that even works, but she doesn't even know how to run cheats on USBloader or anything so I know she wasn't cheating or hacking either.

Yep, until you get to the proper rank dont equip the axes, also she migth have messed a bit with the config options and activated the cheats.

Yeah maybe. Well either way, thanks for the help. I was really hoping I didn't have to start over or anything because *bleep* that.

Much appreciated.
