Microsoft Download Nightmares

I just read that Microsoft has 1,500,000 employees worldwide.
Stastically 50 % are OK and 50% are useless idiots.
I seem to have downloaded some stuff posted by
the latter and what a mess that makes of your PC.
I have had to block all downloads from Microsoft to preserve my fragile sanity.

Do you have a source for this, I would love to read it. Then quickly dismiss it as BS

So what is the purpose of this thread? Are you asking a question, needing help, or just ranting? To me this just sounds like a rant.

My guess is it was the "I am from Microsoft" fake phone call. Which, if you fall for it, results in your PC being infected with the very same male ware, they claim to be removing from your system.

Oh so he received a phone call from someone claiming to be from M$? I agree. Microsoft doesn't call you but they wait for you to call them.

Why would you download stuff posted by Microsoft, what do you need from them ?

Microsoft would never call you. They will WAIT for your call.

Microsoft would never let you download stuff, Unless you asked for help at their forums.

The first post is pretty vague, so we'll just have to wait for more info on what really happened. And yes, Microsoft will never call you. Not unless you called them first. Even then, they prefer online chat etc over phone calls.
