Norton Survey: 27% of Women Would Rather Skip a Shower Than Fix an Old PC

Maximum PC: We don't know whether to be encouraged or frightened by a new "Consumer PC Frustrations" survey (PDF) conducted by Wakefield Research and commissioned by Norton Utilities, so we'll settle on being amused. The survey pinged 1,000 PC users and asked them a series of questions, starting with how they view trying to fix an aging PC. Of those surveyed, 27 percent of the female respondents said they'd rather go three days without a shower than try to fix an old computer, while a third of the male respondents said holding a significant other's purse in the mall while she tries on clothes is less painful.
