Now she's insisting that isapnp.sys is causing problems. Really? Its like she digs up web postings from 15 years ago. I think I'll post some of her rambling, incoherent emails.

I have had scenarios similar to that, Floor9, one lady told me that she always gets viruses....so I asked her what she does online normally, she said she emails and plays games on some weird website...so I researched the website and tons of sources said it was covered in malware. I told her this and she goes "that can't be it, I'm on that site all the time! I always play games on that site!"

Uhh.... HELLOOOOOOO!? You always get on this site......and you always have viruses......

Why do you not see the correlation??



I ended up telling her to go to geek squad, because I wasn't qualified for the task (in my mind, I was replacing "qualified" with "patient enough")

Oooh please do Here, I'll contribute:

I'm pretty sure this lady read the title, disregarded the contents of the email, and replied in glee.....





This one is obvious (my email first, then hers)








Can this become a "ID10T/PEBCAK" thread?
