Ah but you failed the test this time! The proof is there for everybody to
see. I am trying my level best to stop my messages reaching you but for
some reasons you get them before I can stop them. You are a cleaver little
pig it seems.

YOU are the cause of problems with people's computers. I don't recall ever
having a problem attributable to an update although I'm sure a few have been
thought to have happened. Your myopic view is hurting you.

Life is the only real counselor; wisdom unfiltered
through personal experience does not become a

You should install Spybot S&D and enable teatimer, it will ask you for
permission for all registry changes before they are made and then you
will know what is accessing the registry.
