As my name suggests, I am old–been around a while. I started my computer stuff with BASIC (a cold war vintage teletype machine attached to the local college computer by phone line, cool stuff at the time). I am not a computer “expert,” so rein yourself in if you, indeed, think that you are.
I specialize in cleaning up “dirty” computers. Nothing special, just doing the things that most computer users can’t do. I don’t attack my customers for their lack of knowledge, nor do I attempt to make them feel inferior because of my “great skills.”
I have Comodo firewall running on the computer I am typing this on–so far it works great. I am also running BOCleaner. So far it has found nothing wrong (which is a good thing). I am using Comodo products for the first time to clean out an infested computer–so far, so good.
A couple of thoughts on some of the postings I see here. 1. If you write something, make sure your grammer, and spelling, is correct. If English is your second language, well, then I can excuse it. If English is your primary language, well, bad spelling and grammer makes a bad impression. How can I trust your computer “skills and knowledge” if you can’t even use a spell checker? 2. Don’t overuse acronyms. My primary job is in a technical field outside of computing. Guess what? Acronyms are used only when necessary. Why? If that’s all we used we would not be able to understand one another. Use an acronym only after you have first introduced the subject (in English). 3. For the people who have all these problems with viruses, spyware, etc., where exactly on the internet are you going? If the sites you visit deposit garbage on your computer, well, don’t go there anymore!
Keep up the good work Comodo. Keep after the bad people from your end, and maybe some of us can help the justice system catch up in the computing world.
