A quarter said they knew what "spyware" was, although almost one in 10 of those thought it was a computer program that kept an eye on unfaithful partners.

When people ask me stupid things i just say:

Open up Internet Explorer (if they are asking stupid questions then they probably use IE), and go to Google.com... Ask them.

My grandma has a computer..... half the time she didn't know how to check her e-mail.

It was a weird process though, not a regular e-mail company, but still...

She had like ten sticky notes telling her how to do different things. :p
