My mantra

I have one basic rule with respect to computer problems. And this is, do not ever under any circumstances call tech support. Figure out how to fix the problem myself, good. Google for a fix, good. Ask friends for help, good. Call tech support, no, because they are all idiots. (This rule also may or may not apply to calling your employer's IT helpdesk depending on circumstances). However, this hysterically funny Salon article (irritating click through advertisement before you can read the full article) explains that things are far, far worse than I thought.
