Microsoft Releases New Rootkit Removal Tool

Microsoft has released a new tool (in beta) that scans and removes rootkits. It can be run from a CD, DVD, or USB drive when your computer turns on, and it will do a scan and remove any rootkits. We do *NOT* recommend the average user runs this tool. If rootkits are suspected, your Nerd can add it to his or her arsenal when performing a System Cleanup or removing viruses.

Internet Service Provider E-Mail Storage Space Issue

As anyone who uses web-based email provided by your Internet Provider knows, they don’t give you much storage space, and when it’s all used up, you suddenly can’t receive more messages until you delete some of it. In the meantime, anyone who attempts to send you email gets a ‘failed delivery’ notice. Many people don’t realize they have reached their storage limit. As far as they are concerned, their email accounts have stopped working, especially if they use Outlook Express or another program to connect to their accounts.
