Windows 10 Delayed Due to Haunting

News has reached us that the launch of Microsoft's new operating system will be delayed because beta testers have found that the code is haunted. Windows 10 was due to be released in July and existing users of some earlier Windows systems have already been notified that they can upgrade. However, during recent tests it was discovered that some routines were haunted by the ghost of an eighteenth century highwayman. Although Microsoft are playing down what they have termed the 'supernatural injection of malevolent data', industry insiders are saying that the haunted code is responsible for synching computers with external devices. Potentially this could lead to the ghostly highwayman taking control of your monitor and holding your printer to ransom.

This is not the first time that Microsoft products have been infected with paranormal entities. Early editions of Office were mistakenly packaged with a poltergeist which would periodically steal your documents and hide them in the system folder. And it is well known that some unpatched versions of Outlook are cursed.

Nevertheless, Microsoft is confident that this latest setback can be dealt with promptly and should not delay the release of the new operating system by more than a few weeks. "We have our top ghostbusting team on it," said a spokesman. "Our head exorcist has made some progress already. He has managed to trap the restless and troublesome spirit in an isolated test PC and shortly intends to banish it to the neverworld by turning the machine off and back on again."
