Right-click opens up terrifying vistas of reality and Windows 95 user's frightful position therein

Re: Stupid UI

I remember this - definitely a Lotus product, I had it on my Windows machine

The Mac we had in the office had an extension that had Oscar from Sesame Street pop up out of the Trash singing, "Oh, I love trash."

Apparently parents lost lots of important files because their children were left alone and found they liked to make Oscar sing!

ITV Virus

I think my TV must have caught this pop-up virus too. Each time I watch Corrie I get some junk messages on screen telling me to text a number to catch-up with ITV programmes, or to visit the website or to watch The Bill coming next.

Is there anything I can do to cleanse my CRT of this crap?
