Re: The 4 most likely reasons you were hacked
So what do you do when you teach them these things and they still screw it up? (Which is many of these cases these days) I refuse to fix my mother's pc because of this and a few others who do the same. Jerking off would be better time spent for me than wiping and reinstalling everything for the upteenth time.

Frustrating, to say the least. I don't fix anyone else's systems either and have trouble enough keeping my own nose clean these days. The older I get, the more I forget, but I find it terribly sad. After all these years and the things that people can do and have been taught, yes, taught, to do, they still continue treating a computer as if it was a private box, locked away in a private space. It is absolutely the opposite.
Age is a very high price to pay for my maturity. If I can't stay young, I can at least stay immature!

said by jaykaykay:An excellent description of the mindset that so often exists! People instinctively take their cue from their situational surroundings, and there is no visible "enemy" or threat in sight when sitting at a computer, usually all by yourself... nor is there likely to be. So, meaningful security is the furthest thing from their minds as they venture forth onto the Internet. Until disaster hits...
