Dear Tech Support

18 months ago, I upgraded to GirlFriend 1.0 from DrinkingMates 4.2,
which I had used for years without any trouble. However, there are
apparently conflicts between these two products and the only solution
was to try and run GirlFriend 1.0 with the sound turned off. To make
matters worse, GirlFriend 1.0 is incompatible with several other
applications, such as LadsNightOut 3.1, Football 4.5, and Playboy 6.9.

Successive versions of GirlFriend proved no better. I tried a
shareware program, Slapper 2.1, but it had many bugs and left a virus
in my system, forcing me to shut down completely for several weeks.

Eventually, I tried to run GirlFriend 1.2 and Girlfriend 1.0 at the
same time, only to discover that when these two systems detected each
other they caused severe damage to my hardware.

I eventually upgraded to Fiancée 1.0, only to discover that this
product soon had to be upgraded further to Wife 1.0. While Wife 1.0
tends to use up all my available resources, it does come bundled with
FreeS*xPlus and CleanHouse2017. Shortly after this upgrade, however, I
found that Wife 1.0 could be very unstable and costly to run. Any
mistakes I made were automatically stored in Wife 1.0′s memory and
could not be deleted. They then resurfaced months later when I had
forgotten about them.

Wife 1.0 also has an automatic Diary, Explorer and E-mail filter, and
can, without warning, launch TurboStrop and Multi-Whinge. These latter
products have no Help files, and I have to try to guess what the
problem is. Additional problems are that Wife 1.0 needs updating
regularly, requiring ShoeShop Browser for new attachments and
Hairstyle Express which needs to be reinstalled every other week.
Also, when Wife 1.0 attaches itself to my Saab 93 Convertible hard
drive, it often crashes.

Wife 1.0 also comes with an irritating pop-up called MotherInLaw,
which can’t be turned off. Recently I’ve been tempted to install
Mistress 18, but there could be problems. A friend of mine has
alerted me to the fact that if Wife 1.0 detects Mistress 18, it
tends to delete all of your Money before uninstalling itself.

I dare not give advice as all my anecdotes get deemed unsuitable.


Leave your candy-colored cans in the toy chest and try a pair of proper headphones.

If you download and go into Closet > Settings > Advanced > Optional Features, all conflicts will go away immediately.

Brilliant, I really enjoyed that! Only advice I can give is to uninstall yourself first, preferably to somewhere with no deportation arrangement with your currently-installed base.


Reminds me of these classic prank PA announcements...
