Long-time readers know this newsletter is not part of some
publishing empire’s stable of publications. There’s no budget, staff or facility
to handle outreach and promotions: The newsletter depends on word of mouth to
grow. And that’s where you come in: Each issue, I try to offer you useful,
interesting and amusing factoids to help you with your hardware software, and
time online. Can you take just a minute to help me out in return?
You had a reader that said he was
‘Doing Something About Spam’ and using a whois tool to figure out who to
complain to. Try pasting an email (with it’s headers) into Spamcop’s reporting
service (entirely free) and you can get a *VERY* detailed breakdown of places to
complain to, specific to the computers the email traveled through and products
advertised. I liked the service so much, I went and paid for a Spamcop email
address. But that’s just me. J Visit
be careful as http://www.spamcop.com is a
similar, but not free, commercial product. —Neal
Fred: This lady finally up graded to Windows
XP from Win 98 2nd E.
Fred, I have a problem that’s been
with me for a couple of months: I cannot enter or use a restore point in XP
Home. I get an error dialog box as follows:
"rsturi.exe – Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point RemoteAssistancePrepare SystemRestore could not be
located in the dynamic link library WINSTA.dll"
Hi, Fred. I just received your most
recent LangaList Plus issue and read with some interest your recommendation of
the X1 search engine. I went to the site you mentioned and downloaded the
software. I then poked around for some time trying to find out what it costs. I
could find NOTHING about how to buy it or what it costs, though I have the
distinct feeling it isn’t free.
Hey, Fred – A good search utility can
be downloaded here:

Howdy Fred, I look forward to discovering
new information that fills your newsletters. I’m hoping you can help me with
OK, you know what "Load the Code" is all
about (see above). Now, if you have a blog of your own, you can participate in a
similar service: "Flog The Blog." <g>
Fred, I got exactly the same thing in the
last few days just as Jim did ("Can Swap Files Cause Blue Screens Of Death?"
http://langa.com/newsletters/2006/2006-09-21.htm#3 ), and I figured out
what caused it— this week’s Microsoft Windows Security Updates!
