Just had one of those Microsoft support calls

I've just had one of those Microsoft Support calls. The usual stuff... a poor quality voice call, bindy doll Indian sub-continent accent, number withheld...
Them: "We're getting messages from your computer, it is reporting errors. Do you get pop-up windows? Etc, etc, etc."
Me: "Oh that sounds bad. Can you tell me how you know they are coming from my computer..."
Click, dial tone.
It is so annoying when they do that! Hanging up on me before I've had the chance to really wind them up. It is so impolite!
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Just so inconsiderate, too  Shocked
I'm waiting for another of these calls.  This time I'm going to say that I am getting messages from their computer and can I instal this software so I can get rid of their dodgy software first Cheesy
