Even the BSOD is seen as a failure, whereas it is really a safety mechanism to prevent your PC from damaging itself.
    What would suit many people would be the return of "Clippit", to reassure them that it's OK:

    Politician's Fallacy
    As is common with fallacious undistributed middle arguments, it can also be seen as the fallacy of affirming the consequent when restated as an equivalent hypothetical syllogism:

    1. To improve things, things must change.
    2. We are changing things.
    3. Therefore, we are improving things.
