"I asked for a bike, I got a computer. How's that for being born under a bad sign"
Visited father person yesterday, gave them some stuff involving computer files.
Had previously fixed up their PC and got it setup and running good. Went to open these files and the computer is now just about unusable.
Two different anti-virus suites installed, had desktop apps installed for things you'd normally just use the website (Amazon, eBay, etc. apps), the browser screen was mostly add-on menu bars.
Simply could not. Decided to just walk away. Think whenever they see something on a website that says "Install the app/add-on!" they say yes every time, maybe not realizing you can just not do that.
Sure they're not computer experts but just, ugh, you could just not do those things.
