Install Third-Party Rinky-Dink tweaks and "enhancements" and pay the price
of frequent incompatibility with XP and non-functioning computers.

Why should Microsoft design the OS so all these little fly-by-night
companies can get a free ride and be a parasite on the Operating System --
ripping off potential profits for MS as well as ham-stringing the OS with
shabby, shoddy code?

I LOVE to see it when these pogues get hoisted with their own petards and
wind up with BSOD or frozen screens.

PUT the New Features IN the OS.


If you screwed the pooch and went ahead and put one of these Third Party
timebombs on your system -- DON'T come crying to Microsoft.  GO to the site
of the people who sold you the software and get THEM to tell you what's

Heh, Heh -- Fat Chance Of That.  They don't want to get into the Technical
Support Business.  FAR too expensive -- and 'twould cut into those
fly-by-night profits they hope to rip off -- as Freeriders on Microsoft

You can't. Just don't follow the default settings and use a restricted
account instead of full admin righs. Then you can't harm neither the
system nor other user profiles.

The only reasons of BSODs I've seen on my machines were the very same as
for kernel panic: hardware failures and, on test machines only, testing
of self-written kernel-mode drivers.

Window Blinds runs pretty fine with restricted user rights, so there's
no need to fuck up the system whatsoever. But if the users are running
everything with default admin rights, it's no way different from fucking
up the system with doing a read-mail-really-fast while being logged in
as root (or any other user with UID 0 or rm being suid).
