Tale of the Creepy Crawler

Hello, tech support.

Oh, hello. I think someone on the Internet is in trouble and is trying to reach me!

I wouldn't worry about it ma'am, you probably got one of those crank email messages.

I don't think so. There's a message that keeps flashing across the screen. It says Mrs. Smith, that's my name, in big pink letters.

When did that start happening?

Since I had the nice boy across the street set up the Internet for me on the computer. That's why it must be coming from the Internet.

Does the message disappear when you touch a key or move the mouse?

Yes. But who is sending it?

It is just a screen saver. I can tell you how to turn it off.

Well, I don't know if I should do that. Someone is trying to get my attention.
