Dear All,

A Google search on brought up a number
of websites mentioning that this is a scam. At least
one mentioned that their references in Forbes,
Wall Street Journal, etc. that the commercial claims
are phony. And I didn't notice that the commerical
shows people using Apple computers though the
commerical says is for PC's only
(which technically, even Apples are PC's, but for some
reason, the term PC usually applies only to certain ones
like those made by Dell). I don't know if those are
Apple computers or not; perhaps so, but I can't
say for myself.

Perhaps it is a scam. Some websites also mentioned
something about charges though the commercial says
it's free. If that's true, then someone ought to sue
them for false advertising!

That's why I asked this question first before trying it
because I know commercials often make claims that are
exaggerated or even downright lies. I wanted to be sure
before trying it that I wouldn't damage this computer.

By the way, I used Symantec Antivirus to scan the
computer, and it revealed nothing. But the one person
who has responded so far said that he's found malware on
his computer that antivirus software didn't detect.
I believe there is junk here somewhere because I have
used multiple computers before with few problems.
My old one had few problems, and so did the one I used at UK.
And I doubt the problems are caused by me
trying to use too much stuff on the computer at once
because virtually all these problems occured when I
was just browsing the Internet with nothing else
opened (in this afternoon's case, I had Notepad open
to type a response for sci.math, but that was all that
was running besides Internet Explorer).
I am baffled right now and would like this problem
fixed so that I can teach online without worrying
about this computer suddenly freezing up on me.
