OK, thx. Hopefully I won't have to worry about these things for a while.
( I have some gut eerie feeling in my bones after just a quick google just now, that the click to run stuff is somehow part of Microsoft keeping control of you and how you do things, and at the same time maybe fitting in better with the zombie world of ask your smart phone what it wants you to do. All part of the world of subscribe to me and do what I say….)
I seriously don’t ever try to annoy. Maybe I am just the kid that missed being told about the King’s new magic suit, :(
