Tech Support: "OK, I want you to hold down the R key for 5 seconds."

User: "Hey, all the R's disappeared and a Rainbow appeared!"

Tech Support: "OK, that's your search bar. You see that textbox that the yellow stripe is going through? That's the address bar."

Tech Support: "OK, now I want you to hold down the H and D keys at the same time."

User: "A smiley face appeared!"

Tech Support: "What color are its eyes?"

User: "Blue. And It has 3 eyes!!!"

Tech Support: "OK, you're using Windows XP, Service Pack 3."
