When Your PC Is on the Fritz, Who You Gonna Call?

From New York Times:

I was having commitment problems. Not with a relationship. This was more serious – this was with my computer.

Annoying pop-up advertisements kept asking if I wanted to continue antivirus or antispyware trial programs. I wavered. Should I buy? Would it help or destroy my computer? Was it a scam?

Chickening out, I pressed the continue button. Then, like a boyfriend setting an ultimatum, the program sternly told me that I had 10 more days to make up my mind.

What to do?

What else – call in a therapist.
