But don't rely on just Cnet to recommend things. Broaden your horizons a bit, and find a few other reliable sources. Cnet caters to the technically clueless, and I often find, is written by the same.
Just because someone works for a technology publication doesn't always mean they know any more about technology than you. It could be some kid fresh out of college with a journalism degree who can turn a computer on, use a word processor, and little else for all you know.
We learn by doing, and often we make mistakes along the way. This isn't such a bad thing, as we've now learned one more thing NOT to do in the future.
General chicken soup type advice aside... It might be useful to give a name or link to the site that claims to be able to fix the problem. Someone may have had previous experience with the place, or know something more about it. Describing a bit more about the problem you're having might also lead to people being able to offer up solutions. If you take your car in to be fixed, and only tell the mechanics it's making a funny noise, it's kind of hard for them to pin down what the problem is.
After getting some help from PC Doc pro on a Highjack This log I started getting this error. I do use a password that still works & haven't had any problems yet but I googled it & see some site that say they can fix it but I'm chicken to use anything I don't see recommended from Cnet.
Can anyone help???
