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!

10/18/04: Windows System Restore problem

Tech Support Pits:
From Reg=== Dear Webby, I was trying to restore Windows to apoint before a certain family member, whom we shall call Bonehead from now on, installed some stupid ad ware. However, restore does not seem to work. I had read once that restore doesn't work if you have Norton on the machine. Is that true? Reg Dear Reg Yes, that's true. And that's not the only thing that stops working the way it should if you have Norton on an XP machine. If you try to uninstall Norton you will get rid of most of those problems. You can't completely and cleanly uninstall it without formatting, but you'll be able to get rid of enough of it to run Restore properly. Have FUN! DearWebby
