Well, the headline speaks for itself. I had a call from a customer stating he had a problem with his lap top and could I visit asap. He was not specific as to what the problem was but nevertheless agreed to visit.
After a polite introduction he said there were viruses slowing things down and could I do a health check I started to do usual checks, full scans etc and then suddenly came across approx. 50 explicit videos which he had downloaded.
In my diplomatic approach I said there appears to be some pornographic material and this has viruses and that I could fix this over a two hour period.
He said okay. Then his wife came in with a huge grin to simply say “We have a very active sex life and really enjoy the videos to spice things up.” Well, it takes all sorts I replied in a humorous manner.”
She then simply went into the kitchen and made a cup of tea for her husband. He laughed and said maybe we need to be more careful in future as you never know what you will find on the web.
I agreed and left after solving the problem and then thought:-
“ Just another day in the life of a computer engineer ”
