|||||| Great pics of ...

|||| Figured that as much too. Took the old HP and hooked it up to the
|||| net to see how bad it screws things up.
|||| Rebooted and the dial-up dialog box comes up. It wants to 'phone
|||| home'. I see that a system2.exe is temporarily created in
|||| c:\windows\system but you can't delete it. It is a hidden file,
|||| but using attrib -h system2.exe gives you a Abort, Retry, Fail?
|||| message. Msconfig only stays up for a split second and regedit
|||| won't start.
|||| The vulcan nerve pinch to show running processes doesn't show all
|||| the processes that normally show up. So... as an exercise, and
|||| adaware 6.0 doesn't see it, how does one go about removing this
|||| one? :-))
||| I assume you had a full physical backup of Win2k. :-) But yuck.
||| Congratulations again Microsoft. You've made the Net dangerous.
|| So, don't use Microsoft !
|| If you really must, really have to, then at least don't have
|| settings to run attached or embedded scripts automatically.
|| You know it makes sense - it is your choice.
| Let us hope Mister N00b purchasing his computer is aware of this.
I guess it is our responsibility to make sure he (or even she) does. We
can't expect Mocro$oft to start advertising how full of security holes their
software is, can we ?
