Ahahahaha I guess the people at Microsoft were running short on time and decided to do that instead of actually trying to help.

I don't see anything wrong with it,

unless the problem ultimately is shown to be Microsoft's responsibility.


Many software programs that cause a "Windows error" are not a Windows problem at all and are the responsibility of the software vendor.

but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

At least it directs you to a place where you can get real help from real people who speak real words.
Cheers,

I didn't mean to imply that there was anything wrong. I just thought it was kind of funny.
