If it was just me using the machine that would reduce the problem with windows big time. However, staff using computers brings all this to a whole new level. But I mean things like turning off your computer for the night, coming back the next day and now the scanner doesn't scan or the printer won't print. It can't find the network and YES there have been plenty issues with viruses and spyware. I won't even get into the oops my USB ports suddenly quit working and the ports are fine, its just a freaking windows issue. Reinstall windows and the problem is fixed.. for awhile. Once we switched to Mac all these issues went away.What day-to-day BS are you referring to? I can't remember ever getting a virus or dealing with things on a day-to-day basis.
Its sort of like driving a vehicle.. if only you drive it they seem to last forever. Once you start letting others drive it they go to crap pretty quickly.
