Windows 7: Just got call from someone claiming to represent MS Tech - knew CLSID

27 Apr 2015   #11

My son used to work at Staples in their tech department. One of the tactics they wanted him to use (he wouldn't do it) was to bring up the event viewer and show the customer all of the errors logged there in an attempt to convince them that they needed some cleanup service Staples offered.

If you find a computer that doesn't have errors logged in the event viewer then either the event logging process is broken or the event viewer has recently been cleared.
