First ‘Quik Reco’ Of The Year

Folks, 2011 is starting off a busy year, and I only have time – at the moment – to bring you a quick recommendation for a read I found to be ‘most excellent’. This article tells a “tech support” story that I found delightful (I am a tech, after all) and I believe you will not only enjoy it too but, maybe pick up a pointer or two. (My apologies to all grammarians out there.)

Please see, Story of the F11 Computer Fix

I recently was called upon by a friend, to help him fix a computer problem that he described as something that replicated a browser hijacker involving Internet Explorer.
