  1. I went on vacation for 2 weeks and when I came home and put my computer on I had a virus. It keeps saying:
    svhost.exe-no disk
    There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive/device/harddisk1/dr1.
    Can you please tell me in simple terms how to get rid of this annoying popup. Thanks.

  2. The ridiculous picture explanation (which I could not be bothered to struggle through) assumes that your readers have IQ’s of children.
    If you want to be taken seriously present all the facts so that potential customers can properly assess the likely problems, costs & risks.

    • Well infographics and the so-called PowerPoint Warrior are ways of presenting time consuming information in short clearly understood information through pictures and text. A picture is worth a thousand words. Remember, the information is not just going to Geeks, its going out to the everyday non-savvy computer end-user with little or no tech back ground. So, training aids like this are “top shelf” for doing things like this. Techies would be asleep at the first sentence of the infographic, but its not for them.@peter o:

      • @Robert Fong Sr:
        You are absolutely correct. I have interest in this topic but am very Tech challenged. I do not understand the intricacies of computer programs and/or computer-ese. Peter O needs to understand not every consumer is as “brilliant” as he is !
