Franklin Electronic Publishers - Franklin electronic publishing stinks

I bought an ebook "Give Your Elevator Speech a Lift: How to craft your on 30-second commercial" by Lorraine Howell from Franklin Electronic Publishing for $12.95 by credit card. The website offered it for download. After I paid for it then I found out that I also needed to buy their ebook reader for $19.95 and that the book and ebook reader were only available for download to mobile devices, and at that only to certain ones. Of course I don't own any of the mobile devices that would accept either of the downloads. I called their customer service number and all I got was an ad for remortgaging my home a brief silence, finally a quick, continuous beeping.

Istockphoto - Bought atock photos with viruses

I paid for a service from a stock photo company. I paid for and downloaded some photos from istockphoto. As soon as I did my home page changed and I started having problems with my computer. Since that time whenever I turn on my computer I get this window called Register Booster. It slows my computer considerably. I have to wait at least 5 minutes for it to do its thing before I can do anything. Also I downloaded the pictures to my hard drive but now everytims I want to use them for something I get a popup that says I have to subscribe to their (not istockphoto) newsletter and pay $19 before I can save the file. I can't even copy it again. They deny responsibility so they refuse to refund my money. I am really pissed
