For years I’ve had MSN Messenger installed so I can chat with friends and family. Recently Microsoft release a new version, Windows Live Messenger 2009. (Does it hurt them too much to think of a short name I can spit out in just a couple of syllables?)
I installed it and it crashed every single time I tried to log in. There was no facility to report the bug yet alone take out my frustration with some anonymous support guy.
6 or 8 weeks had passed and I thought surely they have fixed the bug by now. I can’t be the only user out of a million who fell foul of the 2009 release. So I installed it again from their “Essentials” online installer and BAM! It crashed again. Aaargh!
My attempt to defy Microsoft by uninstalling Messenger was blocked by the small fact that I couldn’t find an uninstall option anywhere on my computer. Nothing in the Start menu and nothing in Add/Remove Programs. Oh how I despise thee. For art thee friend or foe? I really do wonder sometimes.
