when i was a kid i got a CD-ROM in a box of cereal that was full of disney wallpapers and screensavers, and immediately installed them all onto my dads computer, and in the ensuing attempt to remove it all when he found out, i broke something, and for the next 5 years every time you started up the computer, it would produce 20+ identical error messages that each said something like "101dalmatians.exe has performed an illegal operation"


@jk windows 3.1 didn't properly block inputs from full screen games reaching the system, so somehow as a young kid i managed to delete program manager while playing mr. potato head saves veggie valley

@Dex @jk Pretty sure someone in our house managed to drag C:\WINDOWS to some random location in Explorer and confine us to Dos for a few hours. This must have been either 3.1 or '95 and I've no idea how either of them allowed it since usually I can't move anything more important than a photograph without Windows wanting to reboot five times.
