Have the "your computer is sending errors" spammers graduated to using viruses?

No, only 3-4 years old. It came pre-loaded with XP and a Win 7 install disk for "upgrade". Just never "upgraded".

It's this one: http://powerspec.com/systems/system_specs.phtml?selection=B319

Even if you do wish to upgrade, it might be a good idea to discount any possibility of hardware malfunctions.

Lolcloud. Have you tried it? By default you cannot install programs. If you edit the registry, you can though. At least in the windows versions that I know of


Sorry but you're wrong, some malware and antivirus software instructs you to install while in safemode.

And if only he had clicked on one of those "your computer has a virus, click here to do a free scan and get it removed" ads. All of this would have been avoided.
