My firewall is saying that services.exe is trying to send
emails… why? Good on your firewall, to start with. You're
probably either infected with a virus, or more likely, are the victim of
spyware. Besides the obvious virus scan, make sure to run a spyware scan as
well. I have links for both types of tools on my recommendations page.
Why does my home page keep getting changed? My first
reaction to this situation when it arises is spyware – that's one of
the things that some types of spyware do. Grab a spyware scanner and see if
that doesn't clean up the problem.
Can I change the printing defaults in Microsoft Paint?
Not that I've been able to find out. I tend to use PaintShop Pro for my graphics needs, and recently
have been looking into a free open source application called The Gimp, the Gnu Image Manipulation Program.
