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 Debbe=== Dear Webby, Can you tell me what the best way to hide a folder and files on my computer so snooping kids and X's can't find my personal things? I'm using Windows XP Thanks a million! Debbie Dear Debbie The safest method is to password Windows or to hide the power cord that goes to the computer. If you can't trust them, it's stupid to let them onto your machine. You don't let them snoop in your diary, purse or the little black book, so why should you let them into your computer ? Let them get their own. Even if you can stop them from snooping, they are bound to mess things up while they try. You don't need that. Yes, I know that in the not too far future you are going to say: "I should have listened..." If you do insist on being silly and letting X's and snooping kids onto your computer, you can't stop them from messing things up, but with some software programs you can stop them from seeing secret folders . Here are some of those programs: Have FUN! DearWebby
