Sometimes I feel there should be a way to punish your OS. Smack it and make it feel pain so it knows it has just done a bad thing and shouldn’t ever do it again.

Like when it constantly keeps nagging about the fact you still have to reboot your PC after installing a number of OS updates on Windows XP. I mean, sure it should ask at least before rebooting, but when I choose the “Later” button, I also expect it to stop nagging. But no.

But not on XP. Every 15 minutes or so, it’s there again, asking to reboot now, or later. It’s like one of those annoying kids in the back of your car going “Are we there yet” every 5 sodding minutes. The nagging popup even comes back when you kill the process involved! Aaaaaaaaaaaargh!

Which reminds me of ZoneAlarm, which also has one of those neat reboot popup messages. That one doesn’t even have a “Cancel” or “Later” button, only a bloody OK button, and there’s no way to get it off your screen besides dragging it to the lower right corner and try to ignore it.
