This item is aimed at helping newer PC users. If old hands find this annoying, remember we were all newbies at one time.

The BBC has acquired control of 22,000 home computers as part of an investigation into hi-tech crime. Click's Spencer Kelly talks to Jacques Erasmus from Prevx about how hackers use these hijacked machines to send out millions of spam messages.

why do you need cracks and keygens when you can just get a simple serial for it or if not a FOSS equivalent?

Sometimes the keys are blacklisted, and most games do online checks. If someone enters a key that's been used many times, the person has to go into the registry to change the cd key. Why not get a keygen and not have to worry about it? And there are also the "no cd" cracks that even people who legally purchase games like to use to prevent damage to their discs.
- Have a nice explosive day.
