Re: Invasion of the Computer Snatchers

Good read. My father-in-law had bad problems with this adware and porno-popup stuff...he thought I was using his computer for not-so-great-purposes and almost (tried) to beat my a$$! I won't mention the subject matter that appeared on his computer (Some of the most vile stuff on the internet) and it didn't look so great when he told his daughter (my wife) He still thinks I'm some kind of sicko! He will be getting an e-mail with this link today! thanks!

Re: Invasion of the Computer Snatchers

There's a word for this "cracker" (not hacker).

Better install AV software. BTW, wouldn't the thousands and thousands of adware/spyware whatever lead to "market saturation" which would make the info worthless?

We were talking to a guy at the Indy show about a vinyl cutter and my brother asked if it worked on any computer. The guy goes and names all the worse versions of windoz (except Bob) and says yep all of 'em. It was so funny watching the guy squirm when my said he meant a Mac Only one better was the Plexus guy on a certain brand of windshield
