Our computers at the hospital are crashing all the time now. There are so many extra programs, virus and outdated programs running that the operating system is unable to handle them. Their power supplies can not handle all the extra hardware that is plugged in to them. Being a surgeon, I wanted to to fix them by operating on them. I wanted to debride all the devitalized and parasitic stuff like viruses and spyware; delete all the outdated programs that suck up memory and cpu; amputate all the un-needed hardware and then cleanse the operating systems by refreshing them to the earliest point at which they seemed to work.

I was out voted, We are going to use Obama tech support. We are going to tell the computer that it has more vitual {sic} memory than it really has, add hundreds of new programs to further tie up the cpu, ignore all the viruses and spyware that clog up the whole system and lastly we will get rid of any backups.
