IT IS MAGIC!

With the new "Ab amd graghics card", you too can trim unsightly tummy fat,and achieve a great frame rate at the same time!

Write an email, word document, or even open your browser, and watch the Ab Amd go to work on your love handles.

A couple of YouTube videos in the morning, followed by a late Facebook session will have you the envy of your friends as you slip back into your teenager clothes and play The Witcher at 60FPS!

All those hours of Skyrim will be noticed on the beach this summer, and a thorough workout of Crysis 2 each evening will produce the six-pack that girls and guys alike admire.



Call now...1100-Big-Scam...and with the Ab Amd, you too could be burning off the kilos as you read the ULMB. As a special offer, the first 20 callers will also receive, free, the Charles Atlas Mouse. 30Kg of forearm strengthening technology thrown in to compliment your new look abs.

That's something you'll have to work out with your therapist.

Comment: I am having trouble sending emails,but no trouble in receiving
them. It comes up as error 0x800CCC6F and then says to visit
Spamhaus.org/xlb The information although it is beyond my computer skills
basically says that I have an embedded trojan and the only way to get rid
of it is to uninstal my programs on the computer and then reinstal from a
legitimate site. To do all of this I will need to go to a computer
repairer which is going to cost me a fair bit of money. As I am on a
pension and can ill afford the expense, are you able to verify that this
site is what it says it is, before I go any further.

These sites pop-up when I start the computer.
I would like to know if the following sites are legitimate:

1. VPROT.EXE saying Bad Image

2. IOBIT LIVE UPDATES for Advanced Care System

3. CNET RRACTRACKER

Thanks in advance.

Maybe you should master the 'search engine' first and go from there.

Comment: Many times I receive an email with a Snopes link attached that
affirms or debunks information in the email. How does the sender attach
the Snopes link to the email?

Comment: Hi could you please tell me how to take someone off of your
Facebook list as friend? And how to add someone on your list of friends.
Thank you.
It would be so much better if you would have it as an option writing at
the left side of the fb page.
