Microsoft gives Windows the three finger salute, says hit CTRL+ALT+DEL

Users of the Microsoft Windows operating systems know that Windows has more than its share of issues. If you are a user of Windows Media Player 11 and have noticed that your tunes don’t stop playing when you close Media Player 11, Microsoft has released a work around that is quite entertaining.

Long time users of Windows know that many errors that occur with Windows typically require you to hit CTRL+ALT+DEL at some point, typically after cursing and seriously considering a change to OS X or Linux.

The irony of a Microsoft workaround that begins with press CTRL+ALT+DEL is too funny to pass up. The complete work around is as follows:

  1. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL
  2. Click Start Task Manager
  3. Click the Processes tab
  4. Click the wmplayer.exe process
  5. Click End Processes and then click End process

The first step is sure to confuse many Windows noobs as they look all around the keyboard for the CTRL+ALT+DEL buttons. Too bad Microsoft didn’t just man up and put out a workaround that said -- 1. Reboot.

“Then they pop up and say ‘Hello, surprise! Give us your money or we will shut you down!' Screw them. Seriously, screw them. You can quote me on that.” -- Newegg Chief Legal Officer Lee Cheng referencing patent trolls
