Technical Support  (# 313)

Dear Tech Support:
Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0 and noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources. No mention of this phenomenon was included in the product brochure. In addition, Wife 1.0 installs itself into all other programs and launches during system initialization, where it monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Boys Night 2.5, Wine Club 2.0, and Saturday Football 5.0 no longer run, crashing the system whenever selected. I cannot seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run some of my other favorite applications. I am thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but the uninstall feature does not work on the Wife 1.0 program.
Can you help me please?

Dear Joe,
This is a very common program feature men complain about, but is mostly due to a primary misconception. Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0 with the idea that Wife 1.0 is merely a UTILITIES & ENTERTAINMENT program.

Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and designed by its creator to run everything. It is unlikely you would be able to purge Wife 1.0 and still convert back to Girlfriend 7.0. Hidden operating files within your system would cause Girlfriend 7.0 to emulate Wife 1.0, so nothing would be gained. It is impossible to uninstall, delete, or purge the system of the program files once installed.

Some have tried to install Girlfriend 8.0 or Wife 2.0, but end up with more problems than with the original system. Look in your manual under "Warnings-Alimony/Child Support." I recommend you keep Wife 1.0 and learn to use the program properly.

Having Wife 1.0 installed myself, I might also suggest you read the entire section regarding General Partnership Faults (GPF's), which tells you that you must assume all responsibility for faults and problems that might occur, regardless of their cause. The best course of action will be to enter the command c:\APOLOGIZE. In any case, avoid excessive use of the ESC key, as this ultimately will result in you have to run the APOLOGIZE command before the operating system will return to normal.

The system will run smoothly as long as you take the blame for all the GPF's. Wife 1.0 is a great program, but is a very unstable platform. Consider buying additional software to improve the performance of Wife 1.0; I recommend Flowers 2.1, Chocolates 5.0, and Diamonds VS-1.

Lastly, do not UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, install Secretary with Short Skirt 3.3. This is not a supported application for Wife 1.0 and is likely to cause irreversible damage to the operating system.
Best of Luck,
Tech Support
