Upgraded a program. Need help fast

Upgrading to Wife 1.0
This is a very common problem men complain about, but is
>> mostly due to a primary misconception. Many people upgrade from Girlfriend
>> 7.0 to Wife 1.0 with the idea that Wife 1.0 is merely a UTILITIES &
>> ENTERTAINMENT program. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and designed by its
>> creator to run everything. It is unlikely you would be able to purge Wife 1.0
>> and still convert back to Girlfriend 7.0.

>> Hidden operating files within your
>> system would cause Girlfriend 7.0 to emulate Wife 1.0 so nothing is gained.
>> It is impossible to uninstall, delete, or purge the program files from the
>> system once installed. You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0
>> is not designed to do this. Some have tried to install Girlfriend 8.0 or Wife
>> 2.0 but end up with more problems than the original system. Look in your
>> manual under "Warnings - Alimony/Child support".

>> I recommend you keep Wife
>> 1.0 and deal with the situation. I suggest installing background application
>> program C:\YES DEAR to alleviate software augmentation. Having installed Wife
>> 1.0 myself, I might also suggest you read the entire section regarding
>> General Partnership Faults (GPFs). You must assume all responsibility for
>> faults and problems that might occur, regardless of their cause. The best
>> course of action will be to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE AND C:\YOU ARE
>> BEAUTIFUL. In any case avoid excessive use of C:\YES DEAR because ultimately
>> you may have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the operating system will
>> return to normal.

>> The system will run smoothly as long as you take the blame
>> for all the GPFs. Wife 1.0 is a great program, but very high-maintenance.
>> Consider buying additional software to improve the performance of Wife 1.0. I
>> recommend Flowers 3.1 and Diamonds 2K. Do not, under any circumstances
>> install Secretary with Short Skirt 3.3. This is not a supported application
>> for Wife 1.0 and is likely to cause irreversible damage to the operating
>> system.

The experience of a troubled co-worker,

Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0 and noticed that the new
>> program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of new space and
>> valuable resources. No mention of this phenomenon was included in the product
>> brochure. In addition, Wife 1.0 installs itself into all other programs and
>> launches during system initialization, where it monitors all other system
>> activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Drunken Boys Night 2.5 and
>> Saturday Football 5.0 no longer run, crashing the system whenever selected. I
>> cannot seem to keep wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run some
>> of my other favorite applications. I am thinking about going back to
>> Girlfriend 7.0, but the uninstall does not work on this program. Can you
>> please help me !!!

Sorry, as stated above, you cannot convert from Wife 1.0 back to Girlfriend 7.0.

However, as noted, Wife 1.0 is the operating system, but you can still use a different program as an entertainment program, look for one called "Mistress 6.9" (more reliable than the "Secretary With Short Skirt 3.3 referenced above). There are compatibility issues here, however. In general do not run Wife 1.0 and Mistress 6.9 at the same time.
