I'm more annoyed by automatic Windows, Printer, Security and other updates that inevitably seem to slow things down (perhaps because they consume more memory) ... and also because they tend to install more pop-ups and often intrusive 'monitoring' software.

I occasionally use CC Cleaner to clear-out cached cookies and other things that contribute to pop-ups, but, it seems the world is working hard to defeat consumer efforts to thwart their advertising and
'updates for your own good' material.

I think some of the scariest words from IT people are "We're gonna make it better"
