Anyone got a noose?

Ah, Microsoft, Microsoft, Microsoft…

I’ve been having trouble with Internet Exploder for some considerable millennia now, so I finally give up on it in disgust and switch to FireFox (while reflecting that the only reason I went back to MSIE, a few years back, was because I had clients who used the ‘browser of choice’ *cough* and I thought it best to be in a position to be able to provide some support for it).

And then I have a problem with FireFox, caused by a Microsoft ‘priority’ update. [Boring techie detail elided]. What appeared to be the final step was to perform one (more) Windows Update.

“Would you take part in a satisfaction survey?” Microsoft’s website ‘asks’.

“Oh, go on then,” thinks I, with a sigh.

I answer questions about the ‘support experience’ I’ve had, and then I’m asked if it’s OK for them to collect data about my system.

“Oh, go on then,” thinks I, with a sigh…

… and then:

Problem caused by Microsoft Internet Explorer

This problem occurred because Microsoft Internet Explorer, which was created by Microsoft Corporation, was slow or unresponsive.

This type of problem occurs when a program is slow or has stopped responding and you choose to shut it down. This is also referred to as an application hang.

‘Hang,’ yes. Anyone got a noose?
