Issues with Operating System
I was having problems with my OS so I sent this to Tech Support. Some of you fellas may have come across the same problem.
Dear Tech Support:
Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources.
In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system activity; applications such as Poker Night 10.3 , Football 5.0, Hunting and Fishing 7.5. I am having trouble loading Track Day 1.0 and Racing 3.6 won't even initiate!
I can't seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run my favorite applications. I'm thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but the uninstall doesn't work on Wife 1.0. Please help!
This was Tech Support's reply:
Dear Troubled User:
This is a very common problem that men complain about.
They have found that the Trojan utility program that can be used in cases to block viruses, and in some cases, used solely to stop child processing is not 100% effective causing an immediate upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. But, many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it is just a Utilities and Entertainment program. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and is designed by its Creator to run EVERYTHING!!! It is also impossible to delete Wife 1.0 and to return to Girlfriend and 7.0. It is impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the system once installed.
You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is designed to not allow this. Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under Warnings-Alimony/Child Support. I recommend that you keep Wife 1.0 and work on improving the situation. I suggest installing the background application "Yes Dear"
to alleviate software augmentation.
The best course of action is to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE! because ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the system will return to normal anyway.
Wife 1.0 is a great program, but it tends to be very high maintenance. Wife 1.0 comes with several support programs, such as Clean and Sweep 3.0, Cook It 1.5! and Do Bills 4.2.
However, be very careful how you use these programs. Improper use will cause the system to launch the program Nag Nag 9.5. Once this happens, the only way to improve the performance of Wife 1.0 is to purchase additional software. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Diamonds 5.0!
Since you are having problems with your Track Day 1.0 and Racing 3.6, you obviously didn't install Bike 3.0 before upgrading to Wife 1.0. The only way to recover from this problem is to install the Toy Suite immediately after your next Diamond upgrade.
There is another issue that has been found when upgrading from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0:
With Girlfriend 7.0, your joystick was interchangeable between the many available ports. Over time, once upgraded to Wife 1.0, your joystick no longer has access to any ports without additional hardware such as Diamonds 5.0 or software like Anniversary 10.0.
WARNING!!! DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Secretary With Short Skirt 3.3. This application is not supported by Wife 1.0 and will cause irreversible damage to the operating system!
Also, should you contemplate installing the beta release of Mistress, please see the Wife 1.0 manual under Warnings-Alimony/Child Support.
Best of luck,

My idea of 'gun control' is putting as many bullets as I can into the same hole.

Iím all for gun control, I just define it a little differently. If you can put 2 rounds into the same hole from 25 meters, thatís gun control!
