They don't know what to do with the options "Back,Next,Cancel" Either.
I cannot even BEGIN To tell you how many call's i've taken that have gone something like this:
Them - "Yeah i'm trying to install Foobar2000, and it says 'blah blah yadda wibbley boo yoo boo hoo blah, back, next, cancel' , what should I do next?"
Me - ........ "Hit next"
Then - "Ok, now it says blah biddy woo hibbely yamma ramma toucan Sam ah, back, next, cancel. - What should I do?"
Me - ........ "hit... next"
Them - "Ok, now it says woohey doo nibby iffity wee nee cow tow, back, next, cancel - what should I do?"
Me - ........""
Them - "Oh, I hit cancel"
/Me commits suicide.
