I’ve seen this question asked a few times, but don’t recall ever seeing a definite answer. Is it safe to leave your computer with the web browser open, or can hackers use this open browser to gain control over your computer while you’re not looking? Or does the fact that you have always-on broadband mean that they can get to your computer anytime it’s switched on? Is a computer in hibernation the same as a switched-on computer?

I run windows xp and I was recently attempting to install the video game Neverwinter Nights 2. During installation, my computer shut off through a seperate issue that has since been fixed. Now the game is not installed properly and any attempts to uninstall give me a long error message followed by error code -5001. Since then the folder in program files has been deleted. Is there any way to uninstall this useless program from my computer? The fact that it is still there prevents me from trying to reinstall the game too.

SPF (Sender Policy Framework or Sender Permitted From), Domainkeys, and DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) are methods to authenticate mail senders and detect incoming mail that was not sent by whom it says it was sent. This can help to fight spam. For example, if spammers can no longer hide their domain identity by faking their sending domains, they could effectively be blacklisted.
