I uninstalled Google Chrome

I opened the Windows Task Manager on my Windows 8.1 system to poke around and see what processes were running and noticed that there were 4 Google Chrome processes running. But I had not opened or started Google Chrome since the last reboot.

I rarely use Google Chrome, so I uninstalled it, and the processes closed.

Wondering if there was some malware, I ran the Windows Defender anti-virus scan, and all was good.

I’m still puzzled as to why and what those 4 processes were doing. I’ll let you know if I figure it out. Just don’t hold your breath waiting, because I’m not going to waste any more time on it.

Dear Microsoft – here’s a great way to annoy people

Launch a pretty good cloud storage product and let people get used to using it. Run it that way for a couple of years.

Then you go and change the product name. Why? To annoy people?

Or here’s another idea: You’ve got an operating system that lots of people are using. So here’s what you do: drop support for it.

Or wait, even better: You’ve got an operating system that people love and know how to use. So with the next release you change everything so that people’s productivity goes down and their frustration level goes up. And the PC manufacturers will all hate you worse than before. Yeah, that’s the way to do it.

Or here’s another idea: buy a smaller company with a great product that lots of people like, then totally crapify the product and then dump it.

Yeah, that’s what you can do to really irritate people.

Hello? Is anyone listening?

Didn’t think so.
