    Telephone calls, with a pre-recorded message asking "Have you ever been mis-sold any form of insurance, protection plans, etc?" I always slam the phone down on these. The most anoying thing is that this doesn't always clear the line, meaning that if an emergency arises just after one of these vile pests has called it could potentially cause a serious situation to become critical (fortunately, no such situation has arisen). In the UK, these are typically 084... numbers, but it is pointless trying to block them as they have also taken to with-holding their numbers as well. I'm sure that members in the US, Australia, and elsewhere also receive these telemarketing and pain in the you-know-where types of call.

At work, I have quite a number of computers at my work area. For a couple of things which I can only do with physical hardware, I use a KVM to have a single monitor, keyboard and mouse for all of these additional test systems. So, today, while on my Windows 8 desktop, I downloaded and...
