From New York Times:
I was having commitment problems. Not with a relationship. This was more serious – this was with my computer.
Annoying pop-up advertisements kept asking if I wanted to continue antivirus or antispyware trial programs. I wavered. Should I buy? Would it help or destroy my computer? Was it a scam?
Chickening out, I pressed the continue button. Then, like a boyfriend setting an ultimatum, the program sternly told me that I had 10 more days to make up my mind.
What to do?
What else – call in a therapist.
