Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Today someone posted a comment on my site that just made me say “wow” (with a little “w”). What I meant to say is – somebody programmed a script to use infected PC’s (yours?) to robotically go out and submit this comment to blog after blog after blog…

“Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs. I’m with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.

So we have several problems here. We have the people who think it’s OK to do this “fleecing of the stupid”; we have an unpoliced Internet built on insecure technology; we have all the morons who click the links; and we have all these botted PC’s because people won’t secure their (usually obsolete) machines; and we have poor spellers.

I am not sure what the cure is for many of these issues, but I do know the cure for one.. Please see Our Modern Nightmare – Zombie Attack. And, have a good weekend.

  1. Reading through all the grammatical errors in this message is giving me a headache.

    • Jgoto,
      Oh! I’m sorry about that. I didn’t mean for anyone to get a headache…

      My point was to try and get people thinking about the effort behind these things.. and how they themselves can be part of the problem.

  2. Hi Paul. Was out of town awile, catching up on ‘tips’. Saw one on ‘reg’ edits about removing programs. I had asked similar question while learning(self taught) OS. Your reply was “not” too do anything in reg. Any other tips on regedit, as how to turn off ‘time bomb’ in WIN 7 RC?

    Sometimes, but quite rarely, the only fix for a problem is changing a value in the Windows Registry — but the only resource I trust for determining that is They will spell out the exact steps to take, as well as the correct precautions. I know there other tweaks and hacks out there, and some of from reliable sources, but…

    Because one misstep in the Registry can render a machine unstable, introduce weird glitches, or worse, make it unbootable (aka “dead”), I advise people to leave it alone. In fact, I go further and advise leaving Registry “optimizers” alone.

    Advanced Users and Uber Geeks will eventually want to follow some “Registry hack”, and tweak their systems for fun and profit. I don’t discourage this too much, as this is a way to learn.. and they can (probably) do a Windows install from scratch and (probably) have a backup of all their important files.

    Now, if by “time bomb” you mean the expiration timer.. and you are looking for crack that will turn it off.. you are asking the wrong guy. That would be piracy.
