Hi Tom..

I only mentioned it, because Bugbatter said s/he was doing research on it. That being the case, I thought it would help a great deal, even if it was meant for one person. I don't see any harm in it. Since the forum didn't benefit from earlier research, I didn't think it was an issue. I was really only looking to give Bugbatter ''a helping hand'', if I could. I know what you're saying though. Maybe if others are interested, they could also email via the page I posted. The information is there, if anyone else is interested. And who know's? Maybe it will be posted here.

Short of Taping Phone Conversation, How Would You Prove....

In reply to: Thakns but

you ever made the "cancellation call"? Being an 888 #, there wouldn't even be a registration of a Long Distance call on your phone bill to offer as proof. Hmmm...X-(

I see it's also listed as Movieland and according to this post moviepass.tv 'uses MediaPipe software and technology'. You could also try reading this. This site claims to get rid of it, but to be honest, I haven't read through it too carefully. In case you hadn't tried HJT yet, I thought I'd give you some additional options.

Good luck..

I don,t hang out there,lets say that i,ve been around the block a few hundred times.

The moral to my statement is,like i said i do agree with you.I just went on my gut instinct.

Keeping in mind that i'm no expert in computers,whats my knowledge in computers,whats that word,ahhh,ZERO LOL.

I'm glad you liked the hiker and the snake story.It says so much about human nature.

Like i tell my wife,theres a difference between being nice and being a sucker.

I have read all that was posted to this thread, and feel that all the information is relavent. However I have neer heard of an HJT site. and don't feel comfertable goig to a sight with Highjack in its name, let along sending them collected information on my computer. I am going to try the other site first, and if that does not work.... Well we will see.

It's like calling in the bomb squad.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / April 29, 2006 10:26 AM PDT
In reply to: I have read

I offer the analogy with the lightest of comedy. HJT forums and the HIJACKTHIS program avoids what many are doing to eject some pests which is to format the PC and reload the OS.

I see the use of HJT (software and forums) to be the same as calling in the bomb squad. Done right, the pests are removed without losing the building.

thank you but...

Thank you for the anology, but what is stopping the bomb squad from planting more bombs. I mean you are giving them almost complete and free access to you system by sending them a report based on what there software finds. how do we know that there software is not getting more info than just what we see. Not trying to discourage there services, and I might use them once i vivsit there websites. but come on they could have come up with a more trusting name. hehe

If you use the ones that are recommended here by V&SA they can be trusted. The staff at those sites is dedicated and is just as interested in helping people as the staff here.
Let us know how you make out.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
