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 Rheta=== Dear Webby: Just curious about something. and wanted your advice about it....have you heard anything about Microsoft's active x having a Trojan in it? i got it from ZD Nets must read. i will forward it to you . just letting you know i was forwarding it to you. Think you for all your work and info. and help. i read your site every Day. A friend Rheta Dear Rheta ActiveX is a format. That format is used for a lot of good stuff, but it is also abused quite a lot. You can disable the use of that format in MSIE, TOOLS, Internet Options, Advanced. Make a note of which things you change, so that you can change them back if you changed too many things at the same time and get weird results. It's usually quite safe to change things from ENABLE to PROMPT. That way you are asked to authorize stuff instead of it executing without your knowledge. Have FUN Dear Webby
