What annoys you?

The hit and run from the OPs.

Really annoys me when they disappear after my reply.

I've seen hit and runs by helpers, too. That also annoys me, even if I'm not the one with the problem. They give advice, and then they seem to run out of ideas and give up.

A chill factor of -65F, not uncommon here.

OP's who don't realize that help steps are interactive and need more than "Didn't work" posted back after a dozen steps are given.

If I ask them which didn't work, it always seems they only tried one or two and maybe didn't even do it right. I'll try to motivate them to work through the steps, but it seems some are just plan lazy and/or careless.

Do they realize this is hundreds of dollars worth of troubleshooting and multiple tutors' lessons at the same time? These forums may provide tens of thousands of dollars worth of free help in a single day - or more!

This past weekend I was hired by a Delta agent who is on leave to care for her husband recovering from brain surgery, to rescue two 10-year old XP computers which were crippled by hundreds of trojan viruses to where Factory Recovery couldn't run. Via TeamViewer I tried disinfecting, rescued files from both, reinstalled XP and optimized them better than a new machine, but couldn't bring myself to charge the disabled husband more than $100 - in part because I considered it practice on XP which is fading in my own memory. If the wife hadn't been fully interactive via phone I would have had to make a housecall which is never cheap when it's cross-country.

Quick story: She wanted her husband to practice some so she had him set up the second XP during install. He forgot the password he made while I walked away to make coffee, so we had to do it over.

I think you got that wrong. He says MINUS 65F - that is about minus 60C.

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.
