    It's saved my soul.

    Google instructions on your iPhone. Should be pretty simple.

    Yeah, I've had to restore my PC like 5 times (viruses). When you do, you get a mixed bag of default stuff that you don't want, programs that you had that still have their icon but don't work, and like 5% of it stays the same. But I found two really simple things you can do to 95% of the time not get viruses turning up in your weekly virus scan on my own. Completely dump IE and only use it for windows updates if you want, even remove access to it through "set program settings and defaults", get FireFox, and have it set to dump all Internet history and cookies on close. (This is Windows XP, I don't know about Seven) Yeah, it's hard giving up Internet history at first, but luckily in FireFox the bookmarks come up while you type them, just like history. As an added bonus, you can now install add-ons like AdBlock Plus. I use AVG 2011 Free Edition that updates once a day and scans once a week and it almost never finds anything.

    Uh… no. PCs get viruses from going to EVERY SINGLE DAMN WEBSITE while using ****ty IE. Can you really not tell how crappy Microsoft is after reading how you only get 5% of your stuff back? I've never looked for pr0n in my life (though IE's pop-ups were a problem years ago, don't really remember any of it). Were you were talking to Waldo?

    I had that problem with IE, too. IE is so sh*tty I just switch to FireFox and never look back on IE. Except for graphic driver and Windows updates.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    I'm pissed at apple. They say nothing is wrong with it. I think how they test the battery is run it doing nothin with the screen at 50% and then run their program thatchanges web pages every 5 mins and then average them. He said it it 12 hours doing nothing, and 6 hours browsing. ******* gays.

    Dunno. You'll have go try setting it to do relatively the same thing as I described. The only other browser I used was FireFox. It's just so awesome I never bothered to look at Chrome. But I almost never get viruses! Pretty much the only way I get viruses is directly downloading something and being too lazy to scan it, had to do a system restore there, too.

    Anyone else notice that when you let your iPt4 turn off from battery loss it charges up almost halfway within five minutes because it charges before it turns on? If Apple (or clever modders) let this be an option even when it doesn't need to be, you could probably charge your device within fifteen minutes!

    Nice sig, ikesmasher! I use GIMP (for Windows) too.

    Hey moon, isn't the fact that you can't believe there's someone who doesn't want to see pr0n maybe say something about YOU? Oh well, there's no way to convince someone of something in your private life over the Internet.
