Google's insistence in using drop down menus in everything. Chrome, Google home page, & gmail. It's really irritating.

TV ads that take up more time than the program and seem to be louder!

+1

That's why it's so much easier to but the DVD and watch it. With the ads, a show is 1 hour+, without, it's barely 40 minutes.

Yeah I know J plus you ever noticed too how far in advance you have to set the timer as the advertised times are eaten into by the previous program and the end of what you are recording is cut off if you don't add at least 15 mins to the record time

The prob is not always with noobs. Other badged members' competing suggestions can give OP's pause even when they've not been working these same fixes for years or at all.
When someone knowledgeable has latched on to a post, I always wait to see if they have exhausted their quiver before shooting an arrow in myself. Too many cooks as it were...

Had one lately where a person was confused about the Documents and Settings folder (Everyone is at first) and almost immediately there was a suggestion to do a restore /repair then a reinstall. :/

You gotta get down to the actual meat of the problem, do a little triage, before suggesting such grand recovery options. In this case I was pretty sure the problem was a PEBKAK, perfectly solvable with a little education/explaination, and restoring/repairing and reinstalling were just enormous wastes of time and dangerous for the user (likely to lose a lot of data they wouldn't want to if not careful).
Rarely is a repair install, or reinstall a correct suggestion up front. But rather a last resort if all else fails, IMHO. A SFC is never a bad suggestion, but any other steps can always be followed by a repair install if it becomes necessary.

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
