"These operators high-jacked Web sites, 'kidnapped' consumers and held them captive," said Jodie Bernstein, Director ofrepparttar FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection. "They exposed surfers, including children, torepparttar 132788 seamiest sort of material and incapacitated their computers so they couldn't escape. They copied as many as 25 million Web pages from sites as diverse asrepparttar 132789 Harvard Law Review andrepparttar 132790 Japanese Friendship Garden. When consumers used search engines to find subjects as innocent as 'kids onrepparttar 132791 net,' 'news about Kosovo,' or 'wedding services,' they risked being exposed to a torrent of tawdry images. This scam is outrageous and we want it offrepparttar 132792 Internet. We're confidentrepparttar 132793 court will help us arrange that."

The Federal Trade Commission is a powerful regulatory agency and they will accept complaints from consumers on both SPAM and also a Web Page or Web Sites that are using deceptive or terroristic tactics.

You may forward unsolicited commercial e-mail (spam) torepparttar 132794 Commission, by sending it directly to them at: mailto:UCE@FTC.GOV

I would suggest you not bother them with ordinary run ofrepparttar 132795 mill SPAM but rather limit your complaints to email likerepparttar 132796 one I described above that literally takes control of your computer.

You may also file a complaint withrepparttar 132797 Commission online by visiting their web site at: http://www.ftc.gov/

Scroll torepparttar 132798 bottom of their web site where you will seerepparttar 132799 link to "File A Complaint Online".

On a more immediate basis, it is important to know at least a few ofrepparttar 132800 handy Windows "Shortcut" commands that will allow you to regain control of your computer withoutrepparttar 132801 need to shut it down all together.

For a more extensive list of Window's Shortcuts delivered to you FREE via Auto-Responder, send a blank email to: mailto:shortcuts@emailexchange.org

Perhaps one ofrepparttar 132802 best commands to know by heart is: ALT + F4 = Quittingrepparttar 132803 open program

That command comes in very handy when you have a window open that takes up your entire screen area and does not showrepparttar 132804 customary Minimize/Restore/Close boxes that are found inrepparttar 132805 upper right hand corner of all Window's programs.

Another good one to keep in mind is: ALT + SPACE = Display ofrepparttar 132806 System Menu that allows you to Restore-Move-Resize-Minimize-Maximize or Close a window.

And as a last resort, if nothing else seems to be working, you can always try: CTRL + ESC = Opensrepparttar 132807 Start Menu from which you can properly shut down your computer.

Untilrepparttar 132808 powers that be take direct action to stop SPAM at every possible opportunity, we will all have to put up withrepparttar 132809 nuisance of deleting junk email from our inbox. But at least we do not have to toleraterepparttar 132810 invasion of our computer with code meant to make us a hostage on our own desktop and in our own homes.

Or how aboutrepparttar ones that say, "Thank you Dennis for requesting information on our..." Whatever it is they're selling, they want you to believe you requested that information. Now, I sign up for ezines allrepparttar 132786 time, but not about some ofrepparttar 132787 subjects they come up with!

Orrepparttar 132788 subject lines that say, "About your account" or "Order Confirmation". Do they think that after trying to trick me withrepparttar 132789 subject line, I would then turn around and buy from them? Come on!

So, I've decided that since I'm going to receive spam, I might as well get a laugh out of it. We all receive it, and I guess we always will.
