Microsoft does something right!

  1. They've put a "nuke" button on IE7 to kill *all* the add-ons and
    whatever, essentially returning it to as-installed without
    re-installing (actually if you re-install, it tries to keep all that
    stuff, bookmarks and so on, for you).

    Tools->Internet Options->Advanced->Reset

    Rude and crude, but sometimes extraordiary measures are called for
    (besides if you ever uninstall it, they probably have legitimate
    worries you might not re-install it).

    Needed this to kill some unwanted ask.com crap.. don't *ever* install
    their stuff. Had to re-install Firefox and wipe out the associated
    registry and directories. 8-(

    They must be paying companies by the number of initially installed
    copies.. it's bundled along with some freeware and the installation
    opt-outs vary from misleading to outright lying.



    Best regards,

  2. Pretty fucking retarded, RoyLike remark, considering that you would
    tout yourself as being intelligent. Are you and Roy 'friends'?

    Just so you know. It is horseshit like this that proves that you are
    NOT intelligent.

    I switched to Linux when the conversion to XP happened. I haven't
    really been following M$ in detail since then. It no longer has a
    large direct impact on my life.

    From time to time, I have to reproduce a file from my backups because
    the company server lost them, open a file and save it in a different
    format so that someone running one version of software can read a file
    created by a different version and stuff like that so I can't claim no
    impact.
     
  4. You're an idiot if you cannot manage the document creation task well
    enough to keep it from happening.

    The main reason being that you are too goddamned retarded to embrace
    the required knowledge you need to operate efficiently. You would rather
    piss and moan and claim that MS gave you a hard way to go.

    Truly pathetic, you are.
