Hell No it Won’t Show!

About 1 AM as I was getting ready to crash was a notice of an update to my OS on my screen. I thought very little of it as OS updates are a regular fact of life for any system.

This morning when I got home from mass I noticed the weather in my bottom toolbar.

While the weather is useful I had not turned on that toolbar and wondered what had put it there.

When I clicked on it suddenly there was a feed feeding me the entire MSM line in every story in sight.

Each time I shut off one “news” site it was replaced by another just as obnoxious and woke till all that was left was the Washington Examiner and Fox and while I don’t mind those sources but I didn’t want a feed at all.

I finally got into the task bar and shut off the feed from there, which frankly I should have thought of first.

I know I could have just left that weather bar there but in the end if I want something on the net I’ll ask for it but I wonder how many people just take the feed and the misinformation.

Rather sad actually.

    It’s a constant battle to keep the crapware off computers, tablets, and phones. If it doesn’t come already installed when you buy it, then it wants to download itself afterwards. One good thing about having Windows 7 on my old PC is that I no longer have to put up with the endless Windows updates.
