Sounds like a personal problem.
The two PCs i personally take care of and have full control over have installed absolutely any software and/or hardware (except for a TV Tuner from 2005, because there's no drivers for Win 7) that has come their way in the past 5 years. The previous PC I took care of personally, as you say about consoles, "just worked" for the 4 years before that.
tl;dr Take care of your PC better. PCs aren't jsut for everyone, maybe that's why some game communities are so much better on the PC (DOTA is exempt). It's a very nice filtering system, since the oens that can't operate a PC properly are just stuck whining, complaining, and harassing on consoles.
Edit: Now with more elitism.
