Keep backup of all your files regularly and you have nothing to fear from anybody so long as you have virus software. Microsoft has one for free and it's good enough.

The secret is not an anti-virus program (I don’t even use such junk) but to clean all junk files daily BEFORE shut down.

If you don’t, then should a malicious file make its way to your HD it’ll activate at the next boot-up to do its damage.

Malicious files need to ACTIVATE (run/load in memory) to do whatever damage they are designed to do, and the trigger for them to load could be the 1. Task Scheduler, or the 2. Load at Startup list, or a service in 3. System Services.

If you cleaned up all junk files before shutdown the malicious file won’t be there to fire up at the next boot-up, regardless of how this call is made.

--------------------------------

I find it entertaining that some of you consider yourselves technical enough to be giving out advice… in your case Lordo you’ve gone one step further by advising someone who has spent his entire adult life in the IT industry in multiple roles.

So yeah… I must say, you’re a funny bunch of fucking weirdos on this stupid forum. :lol:


You lost the plot mate.

How does your technical advice protect someone from a malicious Indian scammer making unsolicited calls and asking for remote access to someones computer to provide them with technical support.

You are saying; drop your guard and go for it.

We are saying, that the call you received was likely from a scammer.

I think it’s pretty obvious we moved on from that topic.

I thought you were trying to argue in favor of it with some technical what-about-ism's.

Going back to the Indians, I don’t agree that all Indians calling you on the phone are necessarily scammers… it’s called “cold canvassing” and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Of course neither did I go far enough to establish if the one that called me was indeed a scammer… I’ll never know.

I like to give them the benefit of the doubt, because remote tech support is nothing new and there are many very capable Indians in IT for India has come a long way in the global IT industry.

My most valued business partner was an Indian with whom I developed a intra-oral scanning software package for dentists, way back in the mid-90s… I guess he left a lasting impression on me.

I guess I like educated Indians… they make great business partners, very diligent, and witty.

Here is one of GR's friends.

he claims

đօ пot ɾҽplу to me (í hąve cгeαtҽd thiʂ eʍαíł însíde уoυг înboҳ αnd genҽrated the ɾҽtυrn αddɾess

and yet it came into my junk mail, You cannot make it up. Apparently he has a video of me and will release to the public if I do not pay him "$1643 υsα đollαr". I mean what is happening to our education when a scammer cannot put an s at the end of the dollar when asking for more than one. Perhaps I am in the wrong business.

I had heard that two scammers in UK were caught doing this and were in prison. Clearly one of them has been released.

Assholes.

It’s interesting that the parts you presumably quoted from this email, contain Vietnamese characters like the “d-stroke”! :roll: :lol:

What chance do you have against me Bordo, when you’ve got the IQ of a Turkish mountain goat! :roll:

This is the last time I am telling you. You need help to sort out your inferiority complex which makes you sound like a puffed up Turkey going goulou goulou.

The best solution is for you to get a degree, then you will no longer feel the inferiority complex.

Honest you should try it.

You might want to take your own advice and repeat primary school so that you may work your way up to secondary… never mind degrees! That’s waaaaaaaaay out of your league! :lol:

You really do not understand what a degree gives to a person. it has nothing to do with the subject you study. It gives a person confidence to do anything a person wants. But you do need 5 GCSE's including English and Maths, and 2 or 3 A'Levels. But I guess you don't have them either but even then you could do it as a mature person. But than again you may not qualify for that either as you don't sound very mature to me.

So back to square one. Go see a doctor about your inferiority complex and you will get liked more too. You may even pull a few more birds like. You know what I mean? Bloomin heck a guy can't catch any breaks.

Enjoy. hick.

This is the level a university education takes you to.

As an astrophysicist and author, Sagan made a number of predictions in his writings that are currently unfolding in today's America.

In the book, "The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark," the former exobiology expert and astronomer famously discussed the Ides of March as he offered a hauntingly grim assessment of the decades to come in the United States.

"I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time — when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness."

He also expressed concern about America's future generations being "dumbed down."
Sagan continued, "The dumbing down of America is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30-second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance."

The reflection on Sagan's written material comes at a time where the United States is eerily impacted by much of what the former astronomer spoke of. The coronavirus pandemic also shed light on a number of the nation's weak spots that government officials and lawmakers are trying to address before it is too late.
