That's right, it is your job to know what the problem is. You don't.
All you can do is advise someone to buy 3rd party software to fix
an unknown problem. You're a fraud.

Right. Osama Bin Ladin could come kick down my door and take over
my computer. Some disgruntled Microsoft employee could put in
compromising software. Paranoid generalities.

If one follows the usual advice on this newsgroup (buy 3rd party
s/w from JoeBlow,Inc, "firewalls" or anti-virus s/w), it makes the
above "disgruntled employee" problem worse.

My computer is 100% secure, meaning as secure as necessary. You,
with "expert" knowledge, cannot get into it, and you don't know
how someone else could get in. You are clueless. No additional
s/w will make it any more secure (just the opposite).

You people are out of control.

Have a nice day.
