    Win Fix

    HI,
    I received this e-mail message today:

    "Dear Windows User,

    Now you can boost the reliability of ordinary Windows 95, 98 and ME to nearly the level of Windows NT or 2000, Microsoft's professional and industrial version of Windows.

    The new WinFix is a very effective way to improve the reliability of Windows, because it makes Windows fault-tolerant and self-repairing.

    And WinFix is very safe, because it operates completely independent of Windows.

    CLICK HERE to find out more about WinFix, the safest, most effective way to keep you working, by keeping your PC working non-stop.

    From what I know about (a) Windows and (b) Microsoft, I'm reluctant even to let them FIX my Windows 95 . However, I'm always hoping--does anyone out there have any experience with this WinFix?

    Thanks for any feedback,

    I received the same e-mail, but they're badly informed because I run Win2k
    Their website doesn't look professional at all, right now I haven't seen anything about them on software-related sites, so I wouldn't trust them. But heh that's just my humble opinion...

    I doubt it's true. If it fixed all of our problems it would be very common by now, especially when you realize that Windows 95 is 6 years old.
