that is one big pile of fail.

I'd let the computer lay an egg. There could be money in it, an egg-laying PC.

Conspiracy nut terrified of electronic devices patently doesn't have the first clue about how they actually work - who'd have thought?
10/24/2009 2:42:21 AM
Above Top Secret and , quite possibly, beyond help too.
10/24/2009 3:18:25 AM
You have no idea how electronic devices work.
10/24/2009 8:10:12 AM
The cell phone broadcasts...when it's turned off...
10/24/2009 8:23:45 AM
That'll be a padded cell phone then.
10/24/2009 10:24:34 AM
No, no ideas. I'm afraid you are beyond help.

Taping powerful magnets over personal electronic devices? Can't facepalm...paralysed with boggling...
Are you SURE you had a virus, the giant industrial magnet you had taped to your hard drive wouldn't have forced you to reformat would it?

Tinfoil is the wave of the future, greg.
10/24/2009 9:24:51 PM
Use a sledge hammer, maybe? That should kill any nasty virus.
10/24/2009 9:32:18 PM
I love the fact that this guy's name is "gregarious". He takes so effing long just to ask for help with his computer.
10/25/2009 5:43:23 AM
You, your computer and you. Why I suspect that you're pulling our leg?
10/25/2009 9:20:19 AM
What kind of an idiot would you have to be to implant a chip in the umbilical cord?
10/25/2009 1:24:25 PM
Above Shock Treatment at its finest.
10/25/2009 1:28:27 PM
Yeah, ummm...... all those 'shields' you've downloaded? That's what's causing your computer to want to lay an egg.
Damn this is why I hate customer support.
10/25/2009 11:42:23 PM
You could try making a tinfoil hat for it.
10/26/2009 1:08:49 AM
he is right about the cell phone.
10/26/2009 5:48:07 AM
You know, has it ever occurred to you that all those crackpot sites you visit that tell you all about the bullshit you're spreading are probably the source of your computer issues? I'm guessing the answer is no. Maybe you should look into that.
10/26/2009 9:35:14 AM
But it was about how to 'disarm' the chips implanted in dental work, umbilical cords, injuries, etc. with powerful magnets.
Unless it's the electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) from a nuclear explosion, what kind of permanent or "hard" magnets found in nature generate the kind of field needed to destroy lithography etched onto silicon?! (Hint: the answer is none.)
they can tune in to your phone and hear your conversations in the room it is in, while the phone is turned off.
This is 100% true. The FBI did this against a New York mob and the recorded conversations were completely admissible in court.
I am getting malicious pop up spam...but nothing seems to work. Any ideas?
I dunno. Ignore the pop-ups seems an easy enough solution to me. Sounds like they're just trying a little social engineering to part a fool and his money from each other.
10/26/2009 11:57:10 AM
How convenient. You had all this important information but had to reformat. Guess what? If you reformatted your hard drive you aren't going to find anything you had on it before.
Sounds like the only way to protect your computer is to wrap the monitor in aluminum foil. Then run a wire from the foil to a ground rod outside. Then turn on a blender to generate RF interference. But you have to keep varying the speeds to vary the frequency because they keep changing the popup spam frequencies. It also helps to put aluminum foil in your windows. Then be sure to put a bowl of rock salt on top of the computer since the salt crystals will deflect the signals from your computer that the government is reading. And if all that fails, then just dump your computer in the trash and go live in a shack in the woods and type your anti-technology manifesto on a typewriter.

If you want to keep these popups from appearing, I would recommend taping a powerful magnet to your hard drive for a few days. This will stop all spam from reaching your computer. In addition, all data on your hard drive will become impossible to retreive by any malevolent groups.
