I have a unit called "tele-zapper" (from Radio Shack) that is on the line and puts out the tone signal that indicates that the line is no longer in service. A computer hits that, and it will put that in memory and not dial that number again for a couple of months.
Most of the people that call me regularly know about the unit and just stay on the line until I pick up! (took an inordinate amount of time to train the Doctor's receptionists .. and some still try and use their computer dialer .. missed messages!!
have a SLOW Internet (download a ubutnu dvd via torrent on the host)
then disable/remove IE service also lock out the registry, command prompt, run dialog
maybe infect it with a few virus to slow it down
this way they have to do work on it just so they can infect it
of course put the cpu speed as low as possible same for video memory and ram
and have it running a PI calculation in the background
I don't know how to disable or remove IE service or to lock out the registry and command prompt.
How do I get viruses to infect it? Run Windows without a firewall or antivirus, and connect it through the router's DMZ, yes? How will I know once it has been infected?
I just like how they call somehow "knowing" you have a virus... yet they can't tell you what type of computer you're using? They sure are phishing, and sadly, I bet it works sometimes
