Thanks Windows, but I'll take the risk.



Seriously, has Windows ever actually found a solution?

5. He also said Windows ME was the solution

9. I think it is heartwarming..

2. I once had one pop up

days or weeks after it was submitted. It told me that the problem was with my NVIDIA video card and I should check for driver updates. The problem is that I have and AMD card.

4. Just don't ask a Mac user what the solution is. The answer is quite snarky, I assure you.

6. Those nice Indian men who call from Microsoft Security Services

Seem very eager to fix Windows problems. (http://www.microsoft.com/security/online-privacy/avoid-phone-scams.aspx)

I think they're getting their information from the Nigerians, though.

11. I think every time a program crashes, it reports a "problem".

Some of those 55 may be duplicates, with separate log files on the problem collected.

12. Oddly enough I never have any issues with my Windows computer

In my experience the overwhelming majority of computer issues start between the chair and the computer.
