To quote your article:

"Based upon the available information, the cause for the reported event was due to the customer not following instructions concerning the installation of anti-virus software; therefore, there is no indication that the reported event was related to product malfunction or defect"

You can hardly blame windows for the stupidity of people. This could also happen w/ discreet stupid devices - say a fluro machine. If the RN picks up the 10K/cc heparin instead of 1K/cc vial and gives you four ccs you are pretty SOL.
