Hi :)
Just had a classic from my boss.  He says he prefers Internet Explorer and Adobe because he's 
never had any trouble with them.  He can't download  Pdfs though and has the same problem at 
home.  Firefox on his machine here downloads them fine.  When Foxit is set as the default Pdf 
reader then IE does download.  

Going to showed 26 important security updates that didn't get installed through his 
auto-updates.  None were about adding functionality. Then java and different things needed to be 
updated separately.  The only updates (well upgrades really) that added functionality were for 
Firefox and LibreOffice. 

His Internet Explorer is still grumbling about some C++ problem in iexplorer.exe whenever he 
tries to download pdfs.  He still says there is no problem with IE.  

Regards from
Tom :)  

Too many users do not realize error messages mean that software is not
working correctly. Often, they ignore them instead of asking someone who
has enough knowledge to understand them and if possible fix them. Is the
IE C++ problem a missing update?

Also, many users do not have good security practices about making sure
all software is updated. Linux users are spoiled because the distros
have a comprehensive package management system while Windows users do not.
