From Susan Bradley
Crazed woman arrested in Fresno after she disrupted a United flight from Las Vegas to Fresno. Passengers say that the woman unbuckled her seat belt during take off and crawled over the seats and began strangling a passenger two rows behind her. When questioning the surrounding passengers they said "I really don’t know what happened." "One minute the guy was just discussing to the passenger next to him, how he downloads stuff through Morpheus and how it loads up pop ups and gunk on is machine and every so many weeks he uninstalls Morpheas and then uses Microsoft Anti Spyware to clean up his PC and then reloads Morpheous and starts over again". "He said that he didn’t want to pay for Morpheous so he just put up with the pop ups and ads until it got really bad and then used the free Microsoft Anti spyware" Passengers said "the next thing we know she’s screaming at the top of her lungs and got her hands around his throat". They said that the female passenger calmed down a bit when the gentlemen praised the Microsoft product for being so good [and free] in cleaning up his machine on a regular basis. and the fact that he was urging a fellow passenger to search on the Microsoft site to download it and install it on his machine.
The woman was carted away muttering….. "risk… he’s actually ACCEPTING spyware as a reasonable computing experience because he’s so cheap and sees this as perfectly fine"
Really strange and stupid woman. If the Microsoft AntiSpyware software is doing a good job of actually removing the software, why should he bother paying for something?
Would it have been any different if the guy was using Adaware or Spybot Search and Destroy?
