I sort of agree with Felix. Many people have a system in a diabolical
state. Sometimes they recognise that, but ignore it. Sometimes they
have no clue that their crappy-acting PC doesn't have to behave that

I really hate being asked to fix up someone's PC, they're often in a
shocking state before they'll ask fo help. You've got to chase up
drivers for hardware that you've never heard of before. You have to
extract passwords, or get services to mail then to you before fixing up
their system (where you might lose them in the fixup).
Those that do have Windows systems in a good state usually have to work
at it, or it's maintained for them by someone else.
