    GirlFriend 5.0 Vs Wife 1.0

    Happy reading……

    Girlfriend 5.0 to Wife 1.0

    _______________________________________

    Dear Tech Support Team:

    Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 5.0 to Wife 1.0.

    I soon noticed that the new program began unexpected child-processes that
    took up a lot of space and valuable resources.

    In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now
    monitors all other system activities.

    Applications such as BachelorNights 10.3, Cricket 5.0, BeerWithBuddies
    7.5, and Outings 3.6 no longer runs, crashing the system whenever
    selected. I can't seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting
    to run my favorite applications.

    I'm thinking about going back to Girlfriend 5.0, but the 'uninstall'
    doesn't work on Wife 1.0.

    Please help!

    Thanks,
    "A Troubled User"

    Dear Troubled User:

    This is a very common problem that people complain about.

    Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 5.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it is
    just a Utilities and Entertainment program.

    Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and is designed by its Creator to run
    EVERYTHING!!!

    It is also impossible to delete Wife 1.0 and to return to Girlfriend 5.0.

    It is impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the system
    once installed.

    You cannot go back to Girlfriend 5.0 because Wife 1.0 is designed not to
    allow this. (Look in your Wife 1.0 Manual under Warnings-Alimony-Child
    Support).

    I recommend that you keep Wife1.0 and work on improving the environment.

    I suggest installing the background application "Yes Dear" to alleviate
    software augmentation.

    The best course of action is to enter the command C:APOLOGIZE because
    ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the system
    will return to normal anyway.

    Wife 1.0 is a great program, but it tends to be very high maintenance.
    Wife 1.0 comes with several support programs, such as Clean 2.5, Sweep
    3.0, Cook 1.5 and DoLaundry 4.2. However, be very careful how you use
    these programs. Improper use will cause the system to launch the program
    NagNag 9.5. Once this happens, the only way to improve the performance of
    Wife 1.0 is to purchase additional software. I recommend Sarees 2.1 and
    Jewellery 5.0

    STATUTORY WARNING : DO NOT, under any circumstances, install
    SecretaryWithShortSkirt 3.3. This application is not supported by Wife 1.0
    and will cause irreversible damage to the operating system.

    Hope this helps.

    In the worst case scenario, you may find that Wife 1.0 automatically initiates the 'do_Bobbit' sub-routine.

    You do realise that both Girlfriend 5.0 and Wife 1.0 are at least 18 years old (it being at least that long ago that I first saw a reference to someone who had mistakenly performed this conversion thinking it was a minor upgrade).
