One of my beefs with Miscrosoft is all the times they butt in and try to help me when I am trying to get something done. I liken their systems to the little brother who kept tagging along wanting to help, yanking on my pants leg, and all he really did was get in the way and force me to deal with him. 

I hated that little paper clip. The first thing I did was find a way to turn it off on every system I touched. But I still get balloons and dialogs popping up right in the middle of doing something, because when else can the system interrupt me? It has to wait until I am active. Very irritating.
