WOW!!! It is really comforting to know that in those times when I feel like I must be the worst person with a computer, I can look back to this guy and realize that he is... lol :)

Be sure to have the latest Antivirus software. It is easy to stay updated too, just surf around on the Internet and you will get some automatic pop-ups with "Free Antivirus Software". Click download and install it!

Use a smart search application like Bonzi Buddy for example. It makes your searching more effecient and hides your information from Internet Explorer and the government which is crucial for your privacy. It is the anonymous way to search.

Never, never, NEVER use short commandos. Short commandos might seem "cool" and time saving, but they are not. When using short commandos you are creating short cuts in the computer, short cuts which hackers very easily can infilitrate and use to gain access to your precious hard disk.

My wife tells me the same thing! :)

I think the one Sari listed might be my favorite, I really hope people don't go getting tech advice from this website. If they do, this forum is going to fill up pretty fast.. :)

People seem to work this one out on their own, at least half my repeat customers follow the same procedure for getting AV

Reading it I cannot decide if this site is satire,
or just plain - :hand over mouth while mumbling:

(... gotta keep it family friendly)

I saw another site today that was definitely satire,
but those who didn't know better might decide that it was a real representation of the right wing fundies that they were satirizing.
When I read the TOS, it became obvious there.

This one I just packed it in and left. Better things to do.

edit/addition
Like reply to topics like this, I guess.

Given this (found in the guest book) ...
the site must be completely satire:

Dear Mats (I make the answer in English since I have a big international audience. I hope that is ok.). If your computer is taken by the Dark Side (the devil, the evil, etc) and it only shows porn and play hard rock, I only have one suggestion: Put a mirror in front of it and open MS DOS. Then you write: "cd..." That will fix it!


(re-edited 10/10 to try to add something useful, or at least humorous)
