Microsoft loves to do this – make changes that you don’t understand. It has become impossible to keep control over what has become a complex and unmanageable system. I’ve been with Microsoft since Dos 1.0 (It was IBM DOS then) and I have seen every version of Windows. Back then, it was actually possible to tweak the system so that it did exactly what you wanted it to do. And a lot of tweaking was not even necessary, because it wasn’t so complex. Today, when I boot up my system, it is using about half of my 8 GB of RAM! I really feel the need to kill certain processes, clean out unwanted stuff from my 720 GB hard-drive, but more and more the true purpose of files is hidden. And, as illustrated above, Microsoft goes and does things to my system that I can’t even track down. What if that software was something I wanted? Something that actually improved the security or stability of my system. After all I have a full-fledged Anti-Virus software installed and running.
Damn you, Microsoft!
