    various work mates try to literally push the keyboard keys through the keyboard when typing
    .

    The worst i had was a free desktop from a IT friend for my son.
    when i received and turned on , i have never seen so many trojans / virus / maelware /
    porn .

    clean install and away i went

    The best was a dual graphic card gaming desktop , 8 gb ram , i was given as it was no good.
    HA his sons took to bits and couldn't get back together ,
    after 1 hour and W 7 64 bit installed away it went.
    WoW fast and free.

    My dad puts web addresses into Google. So for any site he wants to go to, he'll type it into the Google search and click the result rather than just typing it into the address bar.
    I used to do that some time ago during IE6 days. But now with chrome I don't have to.

    Its mainly because in IE6 there were no tabs, just windows, besides opening a new window from File menu would open a duplicate window and the address bar entry had to be deleted, so it was much easier to close and run the browser.

    I dislike people who put EVERYTHING on their desktop. Also poor folder organization. You know, 20 "New Folders" per directory. Naming picture/video folders date only, etc. People who complain about the Internet being slow when it takes more than 0.5 seconds for a page to load are annoying, too.

    What about people who type "Google" into the browsers quick search bar to search for something from the Google page, instead of just entering their search therm there

    People that think that having more programs installed makes your computer slow. "Oh, but if I install Firefox it will slow down my computer!" For most real programs, this is completely untrue. Get rid of the ones that run in the background, and any malware, but removing regular programs won't speed up your computer

    I told my husband that if he put a Windows os on his new puter I would not maintain it for him. Nevertheless, when something goes wrong, he blames me.

    Having every toolbar in the world installed in the web browser and then complaining the browser runs slow and they do not have enough screen space.
    I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

    Ahem.
    Use what works out best for you, whether it be Windows, Mac OS X or Linux. It isn't rocket science.
