My point was simply this--Microsoft's Updating system is not effective due to the fact that it takes an amazing amount of time to do so. Do I have an answer to the problem? No, I don't, but I don't see that as a rebuttal to my argument because I'm not in that line of work. I teach high school English, I'm not extremely knowledgable about operating systems. What I do know, however, is that Microsoft is the biggest and richest computer company on the planet. Windows is their flagship product. Explain why there isn't an easier alternative to fully reinstalling Windows? There should be.
You have become too accepting of Microsoft's meager attempts. Why should Microsoft care? Are their competitors offering a better product? Of course not, that's why they've been hit with the anti-trust offense. I expect more from a company that is headed by a man who ranks in the top 60 richest countries (that's not a typo) of the world. As an average user, the updating fiasco I recently went through was ridiculous. That, my friend, was the point of the article. Microsoft, the globally dominant computing company, has a major problem with the ease of a clean install of their major product, Microsoft Windows.
