DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

02/09/05: Problem installing MSN

Tech Support Pits:
From Diane=== Dear Webby I am trying to dwnld msn chat... get this instead....!!!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`` Server Error in '/' Application. ------------ Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed What did I do now? Diane Dear Diane It was not you who broke MSN. Microsoft found, or was told about, some bad security problems and they are frantically trying to patch everything. Even if you do manage to install MSN, expect problems for a day or so, and probably a forced update. When the MSN or other Windows update comes through, save and shut all programs down quickly. The MSN update is rather rude and does not give you a choice, and when done, it reboots the machine without warning. It seems somebody at Microsoft is a bit hysterical about patching those holes. If you have Windows XP, you will need nine (9) patches plus one for MSN chat. Expect the net to be a tad slower than usual in the next few days. Have FUN! Dear Webby
