Found this site via good old Google. Searching for a fix to "Slotch" which has entered my pooter without my consent.
I run AVG, Zone Alarm, Spybot, AdAware and still the little b****r got through.
Will be checking out the site for a fix which was indicated to be available on this site.

Have "played" with pooters since 1965....big ones then..32mb that could fill a village hall!

Now sit at the southernmost end of the country...drinking, fishing and sailing.....
sometimes all at once !

Spare time I build and repair pooters mainly to keep my hand in.

Gung Ho!

Tony :thumbsup:

Hi Tony and welcome to BC. It sounds like you
know your way around a computer and that's
really great. I like the variety of members we have
here. They are from every age group, hail from all
over the world, and each differs in their skills and
abilities. That makes life great, I think.
Enjoy your visits here and we look forward to
sharing knowledge with you. :thumbsup:

:thumbsup: gweltek and welcome to BC.

It is often hard to find someone who has as much time with the computers over the years. It makes me take a trip down memory lane when they didn't even have dedicated video cards, sound cards, or even hard drives. It is quite amazing just how far they have come over the years, both in its complexity and abilities. There has even been discussions that the computer is one of man's greatest inventions. Although I may not agree that it should be placed at the top of the list, it certainly should be included as one of the greatest.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask away. Just as the internet is a collective network of many computers with different styles, you may also find that this forum is filled with many members with different experiences and expertise.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

Yo, Lizard

In '65 I was enjoying the Beatles.
In '85 I was working with European
Typesetting & Computerized Process Cameras.
In '05 I am enjoying a modest homebuilt personal Computer.
Living on Puget Sound in Washington.
A little south and quite a ways west of you. :thumbsup:

Good to hear from you.
Stick around.

patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...
