Windows 7: What annoys you?

What really annoys me is when I have a keyboard error and my computer tells me to 'Press F11 to continue'.

As I believe they say in modern parlance... *facedesk*

What annoys me.......ALL of the people that notice something that isn't working right with their pc and their first thought is that it MUST be a virus. Are people really that narrow minded to think that it has to be something done by a virus, and not something they may have messed with that they shouldn't have and messed it up themselves. there's way too many posts that are like "so and so happened, so it must be a virus...how do I fix it?"


Also, I can't believe that things like the so called "Ram Optimizers", things that free up ram, and any other optimizers are still around. Are there really that many people falling for that old trick that it is still worth the trouble for someone to make these stupid little programs that don't actually do anything good for a PC?

You can still find those little magnets to strap onto your fuel line to "Improve Mileage" and that scam is at least 35 years old now so... why not?

Some nitwit even tried to convince me that you could use them to stick pictures your kid had drawn to the refrigerator.

People.

Nice, but the refrigerator looks quite a bit cheaper than the pad, I don't know if I should laugh or cry. I guess it DOES actually "take all kinds!"

ye my friend automatically assumed his pc drive stopped working due to a gta mod for replacing some textures on san andreas which i had and ran fine on mine and he blamed it and called it a virus and told him its not possible that would infect his system and told him most likely he got a virus from searching porn or torenting or messed with some setting or his hdd was going bad and he was like NOOOO and i'm like YESSS then 2 weeks later his HDD died on him and i told him haha told you it was something with your HDD and he was like well i still think a virus made my hdd die and me and my friend laughing at him saying its not possible and made fun of the fact that he automatically assumed it was a virus hahahaha

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.
