Software Advice


A few short years ago, I upgraded from DrinkingMates 4.2 to Girlfriend 1.0 which I had been told for years wouldn’t give me any trouble. However, there are apparently conflicts between these two products and the only solution was to try and run Girlfriend 1.0 with the sound turned off.

To make matters worse, Girlfriend 1.0 is incompatible with several other applications, such as LadsNightOut 3.1, Football 4.5 and Playboy 6.9. Successive versions of Girlfriend 1.0 proved no better. I tried a shareware program, Slapper 2.1, but it had many bugs and left a virus in my system, forcing me to shut down completely for several weeks.

Eventually, I tried to run the new Girlfriend 1.2 and Girlfriend 1.0 at the same time, only to discover that when these two systems detected each other they caused severe damage to my hardware. I eventually upgraded to Fiancé 1.0 only to discover that this product soon had to be upgraded further to Wife 1.0.

Whilst Wife 1.0 tends to use up all my available resources, it does at least come bundled initially with FreeSxPlus and CleanHouse 2005. BEWARE! These programmes are Demo’s only and after one year normally will function at a reduced slower rate or just freeze up completely. I have also found that Wife 1.0 could be very unstable and extremely costly to run. Any mistakes I made were automatically stored in Wife 1.0’s memory and could not be deleted. They then resurfaced months later when I had forgotten about them. Wife 1.0 also has an automatic Diary, Explorer and E-mail filter and can, without warning, launch TurboStrop and Whinge2.0. Worse still, these latter products have no Help files and I have to try and guess what the problem is.

Additional problems are that Wife 1.0 needs updating regularly requiring AdobeShoeShop, HandbagSearcher and HairstyleExpress, all of which need to be reinstalled every other week. Also when Wife 1.0 attaches itself to my Audi TT hard drive it often crashes. Wife 1.0 also comes with an irritating pop-up called MotherInLaw which can’t be turned off.

I’ve recently been tempted to install Mistress 2005 but there could be problems. A friend of mine has alerted me to the fact that if Wife 1.0 detects Mistress 2005 it tends to revert to your SecureSocketLayer items (like banks) and delete all of your money before uninstalling itself.
