So my dad uses my laptop for taxes (don't ask me why he can't use his..) and he keeps getting irritated at all the programs I have.
All of which have use to me, or have had use in the past.
The ones I don't use any more are still there simply because I just never removed them. No harm done.
He has been talking about he he's "this close" to taking my computer in to his work and wiping everything off of it.
Every C++ script, every hack, every addy folder, every hacking/debugging program, every virus I ever made, every ddos program, any botnets I have, all my games, etc.
ALSO, all my Photoshop stuff, all my brushes, C4D's. fractal renders, character renders, photo manip's, stocks, Topaz plugins...
Not to mention all my essays, my schoolwork, my music, my pictures, my movies, my EVERYTHING.
It will all be as if nothing was ever installed.
I'm trying to delete as much as I can but the process is rather slow...
He said even that might not be enough.
He doesn't even understand why I use Google Chrome and says IE is JUST FINE.
Dammit I hate incompetent people.
This is MY damned computer! Meaning MY money paid for this thing!
My advice is just hide alot of those programs under folder locks, or hidden folders. Therefore when he looks for them, he can't find them, then he thinks you took the initiave to clean your PC yourself.
