Introduction > WHY WRITE PC ANNOYANCES?

WHY WRITE PC ANNOYANCES?

I've spent nearly 20 years in front of a computer, and I constantly fume at some of the really dumb things programs do to us-and our PCs. I mean, I'm floored that some companies-RealOne and AOL, for instance-actually think it's okay to plaster icons willy-nilly in the Start menu, on the desktop, and in the System Tray. (Windows' system tray, that little box in the lower-right portion of your desktop, doesn't need-no, shouldn't have-two dozen icons in it. See "Protect Your System From Dumb Installations" in Chapter 2 for a tip on how to empty it.)

From the email I receive from PC World readers, I know I'm not alone in feeling ticked off, annoyed, and aggravated (not to mention aggrieved). I want people to know that it's not their fault, and, most important, that there are solutions and fixes.
