You have to wonder if people would find it acceptable if someone was able to take control of the steering, throttle, and brakes of say Ford cars and ransom control back to you  :o .. or if they'd expect Ford to immediately remedy the situation and make sure it wasn't repeatable in the future  >:(

You gotta love car analogies ;)

Want lower HDD temps (which in the limited space of a laptop can even affect the overall temp)  .. replace it with an SSD  (lower power consumption, less of that power being turned into heat by friction) ;)

That's the bottom line, isn't it?    If I want to run a cooler computer, and extend this laptop's functional life --get an SSD.  I hear you!  Thank you.  ;)

Sorry to disappoint you, but...

 THIS is the "Most useful Windows installation errror message ever" !!! (Video: 03:54) :D
My two questions are, 1. Why was there no antivirus installed on the machine?  and 2. why did he download the file via email to update his windows when microsoft is not sending it via email they are sending a link direct to your task bar to download it?

To put the video into context...

One of my connections on LinkedIn posted this blog article:  http://blogs.cisco.com/security/talos/ctb-locker-win10

Take it for what it's worth.  ;)
