Today, MS Word kept crashing with a memory error, so I called tech support. Instead of actually fixing the problem, their tech wasted over an hour of my time defragmenting the hard drive, disabling the anti-virus, and downloading new video card drivers from some shady site, before giving up. FML

> don't like PC customer support
> solution: run Windows on a Mac!
yeah, that is totally going to make things better
(actually, it's going to make it more likely that you have problems, and less likely that anyone can help you)


That's actually pretty standard tech support advice. Except for the whole "giving up" part.

To me, it sounds like either OP's RAM is broken or there's too many programs running in the background

Exactly. I love people who call tech support because they know nothing about computers, then complain about how the tech support person didn't know what they were doing. Right.. Based on your vast knowledge of computers ad your AOL email address.

That's not always true. My entire laptop hard drive failed for no reason at all and I didn't do anything to cause it. Had to pay to get a new one and have it installed.

Wow, where to begin?

How about with all the users who tell the OP to get a Mac, take that to his WORKPLACE and that will solve the problem? Sure, it will solve the problem. By relieving the OP of his job.

Or all the users who know nothing about computers but everything about tech support?

Oh and OP, you're a user.

F***ing users...
