Windows 10 upgrade exposes man's porn collection to wife

Microsoft has been blamed for plenty of things in its time: being anti-competitive; the disasterzone of Windows Vista; the hated-yet-prevalent Internet Explorer - but we think it's a little harsh to pin this latest one on Bill Gates' boys.

An unsuspecting Reddit user, FalloutBoS, decided to upgrade to Windows 10 and, as is often the way, decided to leave it doing its thing overnight. However, he was not prepared for what would confront him when he rose in the morning.

He wrote: "Woke up to wife asking why I set it to rotate all my porn images right on the desk top view. I have no idea how to shut that feature off and that computer is staying shut down until I do. Free windows and a free trip to the doghouse. Thanks Microsoft!!!"

Don't make my mistake, keep your private pictures out of My Pictures, no matter how deep you hide them in sub folders. My wife is very happy I admitted my mistake... she said I took my medicine and she now finds it quite funny. 'Ain't love grand?'"

As the user found out to his cost, Windows 10 automatically creates a screensaver using any images stored in the standard My Pictures folder; while this is quite presumptuous, we have to ask who on earth would store porn images in the most obvious place on the computer.

Not that we'd know anything about that sort of thing. Maybe it was a double bluff. Besides, isn't it all in the cloud these days? We simply have no idea.

Still, perhaps he was trying to ensure a solid supply for possible future in which free porn websites are shut down, should David Cameron get his way. Better safe than sorry we guess (except in this case).
