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.

Tech Support Pits:

Microsoft came out with another "upgrade" to MSN Messenger.
I don't want it, since it seems to get worse each time they do
that. However, it keeps popping this silly message about
HAVING to upgrade. How do I stop that nuisance ?
They had a service interruption, supposedly for "maintenance".
However, I don't see any really necessary need for an upgrade.
Possibly your messenger was still turned on when they came
back on-line and misinterpreted something.
Just shut messenger down with CTRL ALT DEL and end it in
the Task Manager. Then reboot. It should be fine after that.
However, if you want to disable Big Brother's option to
pop messages at their convenience and your inconvenience,
the info on how to do that is here:
