Microsoft downplays alarm over Windows Defender 'flaw'

Zippy's Sausage Factory

So, users have to click through a boatload of warnings to make it happen?

Hmm... I've known users who are worse.

Case in point: a user calls me (DBA, at the time) directly, bypassing helpdesk, screaming because he can't print. Yes, he's logged in. Yes, he can open the print queue. It says "offline - error". What am I going to about it?

So I ask if he has checked to see if the printer is plugged in.

Well yes it is. But there's smoke coming out of it, would that cause a problem?

Since then, users have failed to surprise me.
