Quotenejin-san: try? my sis's computer is running some odd, fragmented os...(windows+mac+linux??=my sis's computer)
Quote from: "OS Freak"My cousing is kinda like a zombie XP tan. He gave me his laptop to fix it and groom it. He was running her with no antivirus or firewall. I installed my thrusted one I have. It found 200+ vulnerabilities, 16 Viruses, 10 trojans and 2 malware. Had 500+ registry errors and had 3.8 Gigs fragmented and 2900+ temporary system dump files. Pretty much he just wanted to torture the poor XP girl.
Quote from: "OS Freak"I'm studying computers and I always beef up mine's security.
QuoteI tell ya Aurora it pains to see OS's being treated like that.
Quote Some other people have givven me other laptops for me and my friend to fix. Both of us have found some bizarre moments out there, I mean Do most people know what a computer is? Do they have in mind that one they get one they just turn it on use it then turn it off? Jesus-Christ, computers need assistance and maintenance and security just like a human needs food, water and shelter.
QuotePart of the problem may that too many people these days tend to see their computers as disposable commodities that need nearly no maintenance since they have gotten so much cheaper over the decades. But 20-30 years ago, a personal computer was regarded as an investment!
QuoteI agree with you. I am prsonaly a poor person I have no shame admiting it because I did save very much to buy the XP I'm using to write these posts since 2004. I've givven her so much care the only thing she has ever neede replacement was her celeron processor wich with hand work only costed a mre $134. She has been in service since I purchased her to this very day with only that much investment. As you can see I try to protect her much it's the only thing I have. and as we said both people these days don't value their things until they lose them.
