You click on that link? No wonder people need anti-malware, antivirus programs. I read RBS' post, had a laugh and decided not to contribute to the click bait or take a chance on catching something unholy.

RBS....

You're simply too impatient, or perhaps you've not upgraded to the NEW IMPROVED Version .00000-1

I downloaded and ran what is an apparently P.O.S. software program on my T61 with a loose hinge, and not only did it fix my loose hinge....

1. It turned my planar into a P50 motherboard with dual Xenon processors and 128 Gb of DDR4 RAM...

2. Changed my screen from a lousy XGA TN panel into the beautiful BOE-HYDIS LED-backlit 1600 x 1200 res viewing display...

3. Re-imaged the BIOS splash screen to delete the Lenovo badge and re-instated the original IBM logo...

4. Added a real HDMI video-out port...

5. Improved the fan cooling capabilities to where I can run the Furmark burn-in program on the new dual-xenon processor and never have the temps get above 40C...

6. Resuscitated my 9-cell battery from barely ten minutes of battery life back to a better-than-new condition, and giving me almost 24 hours of CPU-intensive life... AND...

7. Re-installed all my worn-out keycaps with brand new ones...

In fact, this program is SO useful that I'm going to install it on the lawn tractor this spring.... I expect I'll be able to plow a hundred acres with little effort. The 16 HP engine should be able to easily pull (two) six-furrow, sixteen inch bottom gang plows at twenty miles per hour.... should have the whole farm plowed in under two hours!

Patience My Good Man...Patience!!

Regards.

Dave

I doubt he would have posted the link had it been dangerous. Besides the fact that I have enough virus, ransomware, and malware protection on this system for four computers.

I ran the software and now my T42p

Magically is back together with all parts
A brand new housing
A not fried motherboard
IPS QXGA Display
My Radeon 7500 can magically render 8K videos in seconds

Thanks RBS!
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
