    "brdr"

    so a co-worker brought in a XP machine for me to look at (it was the same gal that had the "winreanimator" on her work pc..

    this pc had 189 threads that were taken care of by AVG.. one "issue" remains, and some quick research revealed that it's a tough one.. when the pc is rebooted or turned off it comes with the error that "Brdr is not responding" *sigh*

    agreed w/ both of you.... (could be coincidence but she's extremely blond), i might just tell her my time it too valuable and an XP re-install is strongly advised.

    Tell her that the virii has corrupted the core of the OS & it can not be fixed. A complete new install of the OS is the only way around it. Works for me 98% of the time. Baffle them with BS & they have to agree with you!

    maybe this will teach her a lesson if she even knows what she did.

    From now on I recommed key-logging the *insert cuss word here* out of her, AND blocking everything but CNN and the weather channel.

    *hands her a shirt that says "my mommy thinks I am special"

    If it were me (and it were not a work computer) I would re-arrange the keys on her keyboard. and get some extras from other keyboards so i could spell out "don't touch me, I hate you" in the keys.

    are you kidding me?! its called a taser. you keylog the *insert cuss word here* out of her and everytime she does something stupid you walk up behind her and tase her at the same time yelling NO. Its like a dog, you have to be firm.

    On my sound board we have a thing called phantom power. It sends 48 volts to condenser mics or other equipment that can be powered from the board. I keep threatening to wire electrodes on the regular mics for when the vocalists are bad (stupid). Maybe something like that could be implemented on her keyboard...

    I say take the computer away completely and get her a vtech or leapster until she can use the computer like an adult.
