Lilith forces second amendment...
As Lils, who is probably the funniest commenter here has explained; there are serious gaps in Microsoft's ability to retain sympathy from normal people.
The 'Cricket Bat Syndrome' was first identified during a 1920's three day match between Kent and Somerset, when the bowler, Mr J. De B'Serk, actully bowled a delivery which, after nearly taking off the left ear of Umpire Encrarsent (don't ask) Noggins, followed a vertical - then curiously parabolical route for several cubits before descending directly on the stumps of the unfortunately short sighted batsman, Mr A. Tuscers of Millard.
The result was a tie, as A.G.Macdonnell was going to record. (This happened just before his famous description of his famous village match, but in the ensuing melee, he lost most of his notes, and was escorted from the premises by Sergeant C. Onstable, with various pints of Old and Mild emanating from various orifices in his country-woven smock).
But of course, Mr William Gates, as is his wont, has captured the gist of the incident and introduced it as a 'file error' message on all his damned computer software.
Lilith, in her infinite wisdom, has requested a solution, and by virtue of this post, I'm sure that there will be several hundred responses, (many from over-excited chaps who may know/wish to know the lovely lady, [Editor's Note - just P*** off, you know it makes sense]), to alleviate the situation, and restore her computer to its original composure.
There's a distinct possibility that I will have to moderate comments if anyone gets out of line here!
You have been warned!
