Bill Gates Is A Disgrace To The American Dream
By -

GEORGIA -- I am shocked at how many complaints I have seen & read here, but I know some of the reasons. This man that made most of his wealth off good hearted hard working Americans, is not happy being one of the richest men in the world. His company will gouge every penny they can out of you and then send all the jobs, out sourced, to India the Philippines and anywhere else he can get cheap labor. If you need help with his product, you can not understand or communicate with the people you have to talk with. He gives millions to schools, art and other such entities, buying s reputation that is all bull dung. If he cared, he would let the American people have the job's he out sources. I thought he was a good man, but after using his product and buying his software, I now know the TRUE BILL GATES. I do hope he can have a better life because of all the Americans he is screwing.

I guess he needs another 100 room house, 20 more expensive cars, or what ever floats his boat. We would just like to have a job to try to live a poorer life than he.

Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 V2
By -

The version that I own is designed for right handed folks. I have yet to experience any issues with the device. The receiver for this mouse plugs into any USB port. The receiver looks just like a USB drive. Beats the older style that sat on the desktop with a cord that was hooked to the computer.

The wheel and every button on the mouse is configurable. I've left everything but the two thumb buttons with their default settings.

If you're in the market for a wireless mouse, you might want to consider this model. Try it out first at the local electronics or office store. The key consideration for a mouse is how it feels in your hand.

Vulnerability in the ActiveX Control for the Snapshot Viewer

ActiveX Control VulnerabilityVulnerability in the ActiveX Control for the Snapshot Viewer for Microsoft Access Could Allow Remote Code Execution.

Microsoft is investigating active, targeted attacks leveraging a potential vulnerability in the ActiveX control for the Snapshot Viewer for Microsoft Access. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by constructing a specially crafted Web page. When a user views the Web page, the vulnerability could allow remote code execution. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the logged-on user.

The ActiveX control for the Snapshot Viewer for Microsoft Access enables you to view an Access report snapshot without having the standard or run-time versions of Microsoft Office Access. The vulnerability only affects the ActiveX control for the Snapshot Viewer for Microsoft Office Access 2000, Microsoft Office Access 2002, and Microsoft Office Access 2003.

The ActiveX control is shipped with all supported versions of Microsoft Office Access except for Microsoft Office Access 2007. The ActiveX control is also shipped with the standalone Snapshot Viewer.

Mitigating Factors

• In a Web-based attack scenario, an attacker could host a Web site that contains a Web page that is used to exploit this vulnerability. In addition, compromised Web sites and Web sites that accept or host user-provided content could contain specially crafted content that could exploit this vulnerability. An attacker would have to convince users to visit the Web site, typically by getting them to click a link in an e-mail or Instant Messenger message that takes users to the attacker's Web site.

• An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the local user. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

• By default, Internet Explorer on Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 runs in a restricted mode that is known as Enhanced Security Configuration. This mode sets the security level for the Internet zone to High. This is a mitigating factor for Web sites that you have not added to the Internet Explorer Trusted sites zone.

Windows Update ruined my computer.
By -

CHICHESTER -- Many years ago I noticed that the updates that were being downloaded and installed despite them being disabled were causing multiple problems, they were definitely genuine updates and from the official service (not fakes made by hackers etc...) The genuine updates that were downloaded completely blocked all access to my system! One moment it was working fine, fast efficient and a good clean system with no viruses spyware or anything! Then what should happen but 'Updates have been installed sucsefully these settings will take place once the system is restarted.'

After having all updates disabled because they were slowing down my system and causing new versions of programs with more features and all that (good but a shame they are slower than the previous versions) to be installed and making problems with programs that have worked for years! I noticed that all I was gaining out of the updates were updated drivers that didn't seem to make much difference to anything, so I completely disabled updates...

Thinking nothing of it at the time I just restarted my system and at the next log on what do I get? A LOAD OF ERROR MESSAGES! "Windows could not start because a problem is preventing windows from checking the License for the system." Oh thanks a lot! So I go to fix the problem by entering Safe Mode and finding the problem, surprise!?! It was a Windows Hot"Fix", key word being 'Fix' here, so I uninstall this program with the second option as 'add/remove programs' was not accessible at the time. I restart the system as usuall no luck, retry with 'last good known configuration' no luck.

I launch system restore and here we go, will it work? NO! GOD! This is getting ridiculous, eventually I used the System recovery DVD and got the system running again with my files 'Backed Up'. Well things worked like they said, despite a few lost settings, everything fine relaxed. Go to open one of the backed up files 'FILE FAILED TO OPEN, THIS FILE IS CORRUPT' :@:@:@:@:@ REALLY ANGRY NOW, TWO YEARS OF WORK DOWN THE DRAIN AND ALL THANKS TO WINDOWS UPDATE, THANKS A LOT.

MSN Email Support
By -

I have an MSN Premium Email Account. I also direct a nonprofit organization. The organization's Web site uses forms for visitors to contact us. The form results are forwarded to our MSN account. Unless, that is, if the visitor is an MSN or Hotmail user.

For almost 2 weeks I have tried to get MSN technical support to address the fact that we do not get submissions from their users. I've spent over 600 minutes on the phone with these people, only to have them repeat previous resolution efforts to no avail. They always end up telling me someone will call or email me, and no one ever does. So, I call back, and we start at square one again.

'Do you have your email filter set to high?''Do you have the domain blocked?' No and No. 'Well, set your forwarding to another 'non-MSN' account, and see if that works. Because it's probably the way you have the form set up.' I have, and yes, it does work. My form is set up just fine. Your server is blocking my email, MSN. '...Let us call you back on that.'

I have found a total of 2 articles on this from people with the same issue. I've also found a few links to the MS Knowledgebase and Forum, but the content is no longer there. It's been removed for some reason. As with their technical support, no one has any answers. Or, maybe they just don't want to admit it's they're problem. Sure, I could use another email address, but I'm paying for this one. Besides, why should I have to? Why can't they just FIX IT?

I spent over 107 minutes on the phone with technical support again today. I had emailed them with all the information a week ago, and again they asked me to try using another 'non-hotmail' email address. They have EVERYTHING in writing regarding what has been done. When I call Remond, WA., to their corporate office, they give me a FAX number of the VP for MSN Email. So, I have to take another hour and compose a FAX.

Don't be like me. Save yourself the money, time and frustration of being treated like you have no memory and won't recall being asked the same thing over and over when you have trouble. Look for another ISP.

I received an e-mail that has asked me to verify my username, password, date of birth and country of origin. Is this legit?
