    "touhing"? Is that more of that proper English spelling? :)

    I think it reasonable to make the occasional spelling mistake, when at about
    03:30 one makes a tiny spelling mistake, especially when one has been up for 36
    hours.

    That sounds familiar. I'm not doing that again this weekend.
    Are you just too wired to sleep, or is someone paying you for this effort?

    No, I just seem to find myself forever going the extra mile to help people out.

    I had to try seven times before it "tested" my computer. Total test took
    less than one minute. My registry is apparently screwed up (dad's brand new
    customed computer, one week old), so they will fix it for me for a fee.
    Rubbish, in my opinion.

    My personal recommendation would be to not bother with PC Pitstop. I've
    found that it often sees problems on machines, that have no problems on
    them, and then charges a fee to 'fix' them.

    I guess what it sees as problems may be purely tweaks that are nor
    necessary, just someone's idea of what everyone should have on their
    systems, but as it doesn't appear to adequately document what it's doing to
    the machines, I prefer not to use it.

    Without adequate or correct documentation, how do you know it's going to do
    what you 'think' it's going to do ?

    Charges a fee? Since when? From the PCPitstop site:

    Our automated tests will get your PC running fast, stable and secure for
    free. The diagnostic tests are safe, passive evaluations of your system,
    and the advice will help you locate and fix system problems. Whether you
    are a guru or a novice, our tests can quickly determine your PC's
    operating status.

    For access to the best advice when you run the full tests, don't forget
    to sign up for a free account! Once you have run the tests, you can post
    a link so the mechanics at The Pit can look at your PC to solve any
    possible problem. Or, email your test results link to anyone you want,
    including friends or technical support staff. You can test anonymously
    without an account if you prefer, but you'll miss out on being able to
    share your results with others.


    Care to share on what problems it sees that aren't there that you've run
    across? Just curious.

    Last time I looked, IIRC, there was a joining fee. If this has been waived
    now then I'm out of date. It _was_ a couple or a few years since I visited
    ... ;)

    IIRC it saw things like trying to change the swap file size to a
    user-defined size rather than letting Windows manage it. On a W95 machine,
    this can cause problems .. is the first one I recall.

    It also disliked if you had a non-standard or home-brewed screensaver on ..
    IIRC it also sometimes added the site address to your favourites
    automatically, though I may be recalling a different, similar site with that
    one.

    Many other, similar, silly things cropped up as well, but I can't remember
    them all.

    The problem I refer to is that when I try to run the tests, Netscape
    or Explorer gives me an error message that it is shutting down,
    apologizes and asks if I want to send an error report. So what could
    be the problem?
