    Re: The most random problem that has been reported to you ?

    I just had a teacher come in with the ' I keep getting a message box come up on my laptop'

    Turns out that sophos had picked up a virus, but she could not work out how to run the AV scan!

    Funny that - cos she was intelligent enough to install MSN messenger, Yahoo and a host of other software! :?

    What makes it worse is that we produced and issued a guide to cover all the basics with lots and lots of screenshots on how to do it

    About to have a fight on the playing fields over who's fault it was !!!!

    I was once asked to go see if I could smell gas at the other end of the school, even though many people had already done so. I guess they valued my opinion :P

    Re: The most random problem that has been reported to you ?

    Can't think of any IT ones, but back when I worked in GAME I got all sorts asked.

    "Do you sell Spark Plugs?"

    "My son only has a PSOne, will <insert PC/PS2/Dreamcast/Xbox game name> work? Why not?"

    "Can you point me in the direction of the Barry Mannilow CDs please?"
