    A few years ago, I was using Revo to uninstall MS Office on a computer I picked up. I must have accidently clicked "next" before the program's own uninstaller was done, because Revo then showed over...

    Let me ask you this - how many times has your A/V warned you about a malware infection? Do you really need one of those all-encompassing take-over-your-computer paid programs? I know I don't.

    For me, that was an unexcusable mistake. All I could think of when I was uninstalling Foxit was they could go to hell. What got me really p'd about it is, it was the only time I've ever had a PUP...

    Short answer - no way of telling for sure if it's legit.

    Good news for sure that Microsoft is trying to do something about this, but it's worse than a game of wack-a-mole. First of all, the crooks that call me say they are from "Windows", not Microsoft....

    I'm thinking I probably didn't get them RAM sticks back in right, that's why I has nothing at all on the screen for awhile. No beeps, like a desktop to give me a hint.
