Dear Tech Support,
Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife
1.0 and noticed
that the new program began unexpected child processing that took
lot of new space and valuable resources. No mention of this
was included in the product brochure.
In addition, Wife 1.0 installs itself into all
other programs and launches during system initialization, where it
monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Poker
Night 10.3, Drunken Boys Night 2.5 and Saturday Football 5.0 no
longer run, crashing the system whenever selected.
I cannot seem to keep wife 1.0 in the background
while attempting to run some of my other favorite applications. I
am thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but the
uninstall does not work on this program.
Can you please help
A TROUBLED USER
Dear TROUBLED USER,
This is a very common problem men complain
about, but is mostly due to a primary misconception. Many people
upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0 with the idea that Wife
1.0 is merely a UTILITIES & ENTERTAINMENT program. Wife 1.0 is
an OPERATING SYSTEM and designed by it's creator to run
It is unlikely you would be able to purge Wife
1.0 and still convert back to Girlfriend 7.0. Hidden operating
files within your system would cause Girlfriend 7.0 to emulate
Wife 1.0 so nothing is gained. It is impossible to uninstall,
delete, or purge the program files from the system once installed.
You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is not
designed to do this.
Some have tried to install Girlfriend 8.0 or
Wife 2.0 but end up with more problems than the original system.
Look in your manual under "Warnings- Alimony/Child
support". I recommend you keep Wife 1.0 and deal with the
I suggest installing background application
program C:\YES DEAR to alleviate software augmentation. Having
installed Wife 1.0 myself, I might also suggest you read the
entire section regarding General Partnership Faults (GPFs). You
must assume all responsibility for faults and problems that might
occur, regardless of their cause. The best course of action will
be to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE. In any case avoid excessive
use of C:\YES DEAR because ultimately you may have to give the
APOLOGIZE command before the operating system will return to
normal. The system will run smoothly as long as you take the blame
for all the GPFs.
Wife 1.0 is a great program, but very
high-maintenance. Consider buying additional software to improve
the performance of Wife 1.0. I recommend Flowers 3.1 and Diamonds
2K. Do not, under any circumstances install Secretary with Short
Skirt 3.3. This is not a supported application for Wife 1.0 and is
likely to cause irreversible damage to the operating system.
Best of Luck,
