Skynet controls my 540ia

After setting up Carsoft 6.5.06 on a Lappy with serial port(I got for free from aquaintance on Twitter) Ran diagnostics and cleared a few codes. Didn't touch adaptives and idle became fast at around 700-800rpm. This lasted until last night when it settled back to 500rpm and has remained there. Sweet. I was tearing my hair out trying to find any info on this on the interwebs, to no availe. I now assume Skynet infiltrated our BMW'S around 13 years ago and All unexplained happenings are a result of that. And is there a Guide on the best method to use Carsoft and list of code errors and their meanings anywhere?
