Protip: dont use trustno1 as your password (matrix fans will get this).

I thought 'trustno1' was X-Files?

... But I could be showing how much a geek I am.

Seriously. Don't trust the exchanges, don't trust online wallet services, don't trust your anti-virus software, and don't trust anybody online.
Not trust anybody? I may sometime in the future want to buy a HIB for Bitcoin in the future from someone on the forum. Of course I can't trust somebody 100% I agree with that. I may trust someone though with something from 1 to 10 bitcents but still I will evaluate if I trust the person.

There may still be hope for the 1st decentralized cryptocurrency which is Bitcoin. How to approach different subjects is key to progress.

Make SURE you create some form of remembering your password!  You'd be surprised on how easy it is to forget!  i did it just the other day when trying to send some bitcoin!

And if you are SURE you wont forget it - its not hard enough to remember! (aka for someone to crack)

virtual machines for software you don't trust, though then you have to trust the virtual machine. I recommend the virtual machine to be free libre and open source. Though that won't be enough to trust it. Maybe you will need the developers or distributors public key. If you got a distro like Ubuntu it's in their software center so then your distro already have the relevant keys. Then just make sure that you trust that you got an "exact copy" of Ubuntu that everybody else got.
Do a checksum check, maybe download it through https? What else can I do?

I just remember one thing. Usually the bitcoins can be found in the .bitcoin folder. I think that may become a problem as malicious programs may want to steal my wallet. I really don't have a solution to this yet...

If I use another program it may be stored somewhere else. I would like to have an option to select manually where my bitcoin settings folder is so that malware can't use that technique to find my bitcoin settings folder. Any other way?

Otherwise I'll have to trust ALL software on my computer to not try stealing my wallet in my .bitcoin/.multibit folders. I'll be forced to use the encryption feature in Bitcoin then and I am also forced to make up and remember a passphrase. Argh.

It is open source so you may modify it how you wish.

However, if the main client was modified to make the wallet location definable or random, it would have to somehow store that location so it could find the wallet again and any mal-ware would easily be able to find and use that information.
hmm, if it was portable like portableapps? Some programs are portable even if they are not part of portableapps. I remember some program that if you dropped a text file called "settings.txt" in the program folder it immediately started storing settings in the same folder. That would then make it portable and you could move it to your usb stick or other place. Yes the malware can try to search for bitcoins on a usb stick...

There may still be hope for the 1st decentralized cryptocurrency which is Bitcoin. How to approach different subjects is key to progress.
