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!

10/03/03: Messenger Update Hassle

Tech Support Pits:
From Peter=== Dear Webby, 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 ? Thanks Peter Dear Peter 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: Have FUN DearWebby
