    Microsuck Softs! XP stools!

    Bizarre file named "~"

    I have found at least six Windows PCs on my network that have one or more copies of a file where the entire file name is "~", no extension. Naturally I don't have one at my fingertips, so I can't...

    Judging by personal experience at my office, attacks are on the rise. Every time I run something like Ad-Aware I end up removing dozens or hundreds of undesirable bits. I don't care if they want to...
  9. Multiple symptoms - single problem or just a bad month?

    I have just had a third computer with a hard drive problem. The first PC also seemed to have a bad CMOS battery. It is an HP XP PC with two HDs; one crashed, the other lost most of its files. The...

    Late follow-up on resolution
