Public Service Announcement
Never, ever, ever attempt to uninstall Norton. It will mess you up. Hire a man to take care of it for you.
I’m trying to make it sound like hitmen are a logical response to Norton software, but I’m slightly too irritated to make that totally obvious. I apologize for this.
System Restore is a blank box and fucking *Windows Help is broken*. And it gave me a weird error message telling me I should uninstall McAfee, and then broke all the McAfee icons. This seems like kind of a dishonest business practice, what’s going on here.
I can still open most programs, but some of them are acting weird – one of the textboxes on the LiveJournal site has changed sizes, for instance, and in IE the buttons have disappeared. Since I can still get into Wordpad and Adobe, fixing this is going to have to wait until after essay-mageddon.
