Depends dasy2k1, maybe this user is a heavy windows based applications user.

Some people refuse to use anything other than winamp, or IE. Cant tell them no if its possible right?.

So you just warn them of the Consequences and help them along the way. and when they botch there os from spyware and adware. tell them i told you so.
