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!

Tech Support Pits:
From Carol=== Dear Webby need some tech help, please. Every time I am on my computer at home, and at periods of approximately every 10-15 minutes, the following message pops up (we have AOL and they were no help): The OSSPROXY.EXE file is linked to missing export KERNEL32.DLL:lsDebuggedPresent What's this gobbleegook mean, and what, if anything, do we need to do to get it off our (very) old computer? Just to give you an idea of how old our computer is, we can't go any higher on the AOL upgrade than 6.0. and our memory is (honest) 27. Carol Dear Carol OSSPROXY.EXE pretends to be a download accelerator, but it's just ad ware that saddles you with more ads. It is also a security risk. I would try using Spybot-Search&Destroy or AdAware to get rid of it. Have FUN! Dear Webby
