Or buy a new computer, restore data backups, and start over again. Sure. 
Trash her working environment, remove her preferred browser from the 
computer, trash its saved bookmarks, replace the browser with Edge. 
Trash her Outlook email entirely because Microsoft would like her to buy 
a new version. Corporate America is delighted to use up hours of our 
time cleaning up its messes so long as the process contributes to 
profit. And we're its handmaidens. Utterly corrupt.
