Had a blast trying to clean up an old Windows 8 laptop. “It will not take a long time”—Microsoft words, not mine.
“Do you want to reformat the whole drive?” YES
“Not enough space :( Need 5 more Gb!”
You are going to remove everything from the disk. Why do you need me to free up space first?
Ok, let’s free up some space. Uninstalling Photoshop:
“To uninstall, please login to Adobe Cloud first!”
Ok, let’s remove Adobe Cloud then:
“Can’t remove because Photoshop depends on it!”
Ok, back to Photoshop uninstall. Logging in to Adobe Cloud:
“Hey, new update, wait while it’s being downloaded...”
- Opens Exit survey in IE 11
- IE 11 thinks it’s a good opportunity to being configured for the first time
- Everything hangs
- Find out there’s second Skype installed
Finally, everything is ready for reset:
“It will not take much time...”
2 hours pass (literally, 2 hours)...
Reboot and start again.
