I hate modern computer companies. A month or so ago, I installed QuickTime to watch a movie. Today, I need to view a TIF. Unfortunately, QuickTime decided to register itself at the TIF viewer and freezes up when I try to view the TIF.

Of course, all of this is really Microsoft's problem because they created an operating system that makes it easy for programs to reregister program viewers, but have made it devilishly difficult for end users to determine what programs will view what program. I still think it is complete garbage that just about every single one of these programs try to take over the entire machine.

Now that computer companies know that installing adware means they get to take money from the end user, things are going to get substantially worse before they get better.
