Well, this is quite a over-generalization, really. Most people just want to get on with their own business and don't want to waste time fixing the computer, which most people perceive it should work out of the box (and run windows apps, btw) just as most stuff one buys does. Also, most people feel insecure when it comes to computers, especially when most error messages are actually unreadable, when not misleading. Perfectly reasonable to ignore warnings :-)
