Not forgotten, it's just that I recall when I looked at this before my aunt died, there were some other issues beyond what you'd asked about. I will get back to it, sorry for the delay.

sorry for the delay.
You are expecting far more from yourself than anyone here is expecting. In fact you have been here much more than expected considering the current state of affairs.

Exactly right, I didn't anticipate a response - just seemed to have some interesting possibilities if left. Or it might be desirable to change the behavior. Nothing worth any sort of priority of itself. But raised partly because such things sometimes lead elsewhere, to more worthy things.

[sorry myself for not jumping in more quickly with assurances - a server or two seems to have briefly gone offline here with a local thunder storm. Send her down Hughie! Rain, that is, you can hold off on the St Barbara's dear old dad stuff.]

Jaan pahachan ho, Jeena asaan ho. Okay, doesn't translate well - more along the lines of "(We should) get (properly) acquainted - (it would) make life more simple". Lines of the famous (in India) song resurrected in Heineken ads last year.

Music on hold for those scam calls - the tell-tale 3 seconds silence then "Hello? Mr

Ramsbotham

? My name is David, I'm from the Windows Support Centre, OK? And we've been detecting serious errors and downloads of suspicious and malicious files to your computer, OK? To fix this problem I first need you to press the Windows key on your keyboard OK?... Hello?"

Report with the 6 digit pincode the scammers provide to take over the PC (via www.support.me, support.me, logmein.com, logmein123.com) and the date-time and timezone when provided to:

scamreport[at]logmein.com OR

https://secure.logmein.com/contactus

Looks like someone is now blocking connection to www.support.me from my location/provider (still up and running via proxies/watchmouse.com etc. also pings work from my PC) - somewhat misguided since it is a legitimate service, simply abused. Ah well, my favourite "Windows Support Center" still gave me a six-digit code to type in which I promptly e-mailed to scamreport[at]logmein.com :D

Anyone know the failure message if an incorrect code is entered there? Next time I might try stringing the scammers along using that, to see how many codes they will give me to report. Better in bulk, eh?

[edit] Ah, never mind, got it. It is

Code does not exist. Please contact your support provider.

Oh, www.support.me wasn't blocked by the way - just the "Windows Support Centre" favourite method of using the run box to access the internet. All sorts of other URL connects, except through a browser, affected as well (links from dialog boxes, tcpIQ dictionary consultations, attachments to Yahoo7 webmail compositions, etc. all suddenly not working). But, it turns out, following some update of something, one now needs to specify a default browser. Hitherto those connections initiated from outside a browser picked up IE if no default was set. That stopped following M$ apparently taking a rare step back from imposing itself. Once a default browser is specified, it all works again.

JIC others with multiple browsers experiencing the same (it was fair getting up my left nostril, I can tell you, so many possibilities to explore, so few clues). Microsoft update still opens via IE, if installed, regardless of the default (that's a good thing in my case). They haven't retreated all the way :D

(test remote img link, then remove)

Yep, Firefox addin "collusion" confirms information sent to remote location whenever the image is viewed (whenever page is loaded). Well, we knew that but still ...

That's (one of the reasons) why remote images are not allowed in these forums.
