Well I'm glad I reinstalled my mom's PC last year

Since it was still running Windows 7 I finally had to drag her into Windows 7, but the one side benefit was that I upgraded her to an SSD which meant reinstalling from scratch. Thus no Dell crapware on her pristine Windows 10 install.

Though sounds like just as I had to tweak her Windows 7 to avoid having it upgrade to Windows 10 on its own, I will soon have to do the same to stop it from upgrading to Windows 11. Sigh.
