    Dear Tech Support,
    Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that
    the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of
    space and valuable resources. No mention of this was included with the
    product information.

    In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now
    launches during system initialization, where it monitors all other system
    activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Drunken Boys Night 2.5,
    Football 5.0, Hunting and Fishing 7.5 and Racing 3.6 no longer run, crashing
    the system whenever selected.

    I can't seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run my
    favorite applications. I'm thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but
    the Uninstall doesn't work on Wife 1.0. Please help!
    Thanks,

    Dear Troubled User,

    This is a very common problem. Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to
    Wife 1.0 thinking that it is merely an Utilities and Entertainment program.
    Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and is designed by its creator to run
    everything!
    It is also impossible to delete Wife 1.0 and return to Girlfriend 7.0.
    Hidden operating system files 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
    designed to not allow this. Some have tried to install Girlfriend 8.0 or
    Wife 2.0 but end up with more problems than in the original system.

    Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under "Warnings: Maintenance/Child Support".

    I recommend that you keep Wife 1.0. I suggest installing the background
    application program Yes_Dear to alleviate software augmentation. Having
    installed Wife 1.0 myself, I also suggest that you read the entire section
    regarding "General Partnership Faults (GPFs)".

    You must assume all responsibility for any faults and problems that occur,
    regardless of their cause. You will also find that GPFs tend to be somewhat
    cyclical, occurring approximately 28 days apart. The best course of action
    is to enter the command C:APOLOGIZE. Avoid excessive use of C:YES_DEAR
    because ultimately you will have to use the APOLOGIZE command before the
    system will return to normal anyway.

    Remember, the system will run smoothly as long as you take the blame
    for all GPFs. Wife 1.0 is a great program, but tends to require very high
    maintenance. Wife 1.0 comes with several support programs such as
    Clean_and_Sweep 3.0, Cook_It 1.5 (which replaces Burn_It 1.0) and Do_Bills
    4.2.
    You must however be very careful how you use these programs.

    Improper use will cause the system to launch the programNag_Nag 9.5.
    Once this happens, the only way to improve the performance of Wife 1.0 is to
    purchase additional software. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Diamonds 5.0
    should this happen.

    Best of luck.
