The Blue Screen Hack

The Blue Screen Hack

Before we do anything else… We have to applaud the craftsmanship that went into what is called:

“The Blue Screen Hack”

It looks like the blue screen you get when your computer just dies for no real reason, except, at the bottom there is a phone number.  No Error on the face of Microsoft’s software team, included a business card with their error messages, this is a scam, a bad and expensive one to fix too…  Whatever you do. DO NOT CALL.  Call Toby or Mike or Rick. Call them, not the number on the blue screen.  The contact info is at the bottom.

And now for the rest of the program 🙂

From several members:  Please explain the Blue Screen hack.. (see above, and hear about it on the podcast)

Lisa Toth:  I get script errors in Outlook when I try to read some email messages.

Andy Toth:  Is there a way to recover specific files from a Microsoft System Image without having to restore?  What version of Windows?  I’m running Win10 but want files from a Win7 backup.

Bunny Vreeland:  Please comment on the Apple $10,000 Gold Watch

Sue Nethercott: I have a twitter hash tag I check from time to time to see if there are any rare birds in my area at the moment but for a while now it hasn’t been showing me the latest tweets first. Knowing what birds were around last month is useless to me. I unchecked ‘Show me the best Tweets first’ when they introduced the change to the timeline.
