    Here it is

    The salesperson goes into costumers network freequently w/ his notebook.

    SOmeday Salesbeing (cant call that a person, can ya?) comes into my cage (little grasshopper not enough skilled to have cubicle, HAY?) and says that something on the costumers network changed the Being´s default home page. I lift up my tons of boredom and find out that his default homepage had been turned to sometinhg like www.gaytoronto.com (or such) I stare with the eyes of an ox (no expression) to the being and he satrts to say that he had nothing to do w/ that, that it was probably his young cousin or somethin...

    I just made myself of dumb (not hard ...) and sayed that there was no problem, because the company had no polices nor recomendations related to "Hard Core Pornography found on COmpanyes equipment or installations", but i would be happy to mail the president of the company with my questions regarding the being´s behavor

    PRRRRRETY SCARRRRY, heh?

    Actually, there is a trojan called Seeker than can alter your default startup page. It usually is embedded as JavaScript on a web site, and alters the startup page to point to that site.

    So the Luser might not have intentionally set that as his startup page, but he had to have been visiting it at some point.

    I love it when they deny the Porn stuff. The temp internet files are loaded with porn, and there are some sites that actually download some sort of Porn-Browser, obviously they clicked on it to download it, but when it gets all jacked up they swear up and down that they have no idea how it got there. I would love to have just one person say "yeah man, I was surfing for porn and looking for bestaility pics when my computer crashed, can you save my porn?" you would have to admire his honesty.

    i said this before but we found Otis Nixons (Atlanta Braves outfielder) machine just loaded with gay porn.. i don't care if he's gay or not but it was funny as hell. Denny Nagel (sp?) came in too but just to return a fried 19" monitor.. back when 19" monitors were $1200.. i guess pitchers get PAID.

    I have an old client from the garage days who has 2 20gig drives and a burner so he can amass the greatest collection possible. the funny part is he will actually say "hey man i screwed something up can you save my porn". now that we are all growed up we like to make the new tech work on his machine whenever it comes in just to see the look on his face when he loks into the secondary drive. then their was the client who blamed the porn on his computers on his kids, i guess his daughter liked to visit lolita.cum... sick puppy- he gets no respect from us.

    No i'm sorry the most common one i get is:

    "I didn't do anything - it just broke..."

    Oh, so amazingly all of these directories just chose on fine day to delete themselves, well i'm sorry i guess your right, .DLL's frequently move to the recycle bin all by themselves...

    GARBAGE IN GARBAGE OUT

    (And they still say its my fault)

    My funniest experience was when I was doing the usual porn hunt on a customer's PC. It was a female's PC and she was probably in her mid 40's. I found a directory full of JPG files and opened a couple up. AAAAAARGH! It was her, fully naked in some home job porn effort. My curiousity became the best of me so I looked through the rest. Shocking... considered some sort of blackmailing but couldn't be bothered. She had a cheeky grin on her face when she picked up her computer. Hope she never wants an on-site service!!

    Cool

    the worst one i ever got actually came from a company. I was awakened one morning by a neighbor friend of mine, her PC refused to turn on. I got dressed proceeded to her house and quickly diagnosed her problem as a bad power supply. we took the PC to the store where it was purchased beacause it was still under warranty. When we arrived at the store i informed the tech of the problem and they took it in the back room. 20 minutes later they came back and said the power supply was not the problem but that i wasnt pushing the power button in far enough to turn it on. (this on an ATX system less than a yr old) after looking over the PC breifly i asked why if the PS wasnt the problem, did they put in a new one anyway. i collected the PC and walked out of the place.

    a regular customer of mine is this online porn business that uses their comps. for video editing and streaming. as you can imagine i can't wait for their systems to break(especially since they slide me a couple gigs of porn under the table every time they come in)

    Damn... all sorts of Coloradans Guess I should join the party. I suppose I'm more of a freelance tech, tho. Still in school in Golden. Anyone have suggestions for an after school job?

    (BTW... you guys at Computer Renaissance are some of the best I've ever worked with, as far as knowing what you're selling...)
