    Me All Broken

    Sorry if I've not been around folks. My computer caught about 7 trojan viruses and I've been scanning for about 60 hours.

    Oh the joys of debugging....

    It hapens when you download something in hurry. I keep my Vista X64 up to date and use free antivirus called "Avast!" and dind't have a single trojan in 2 years now and it's not like i'm very careful. Maybe i'm just lucky though...

    Anyway - if you use or will switch to Vista it has an excelet built in backup service that allow you to backup your system completely (disk C for example) and just use Vista DVD to restore system completely in matter of minutes. Nothing new here i guess, but at least you don't need anything but OS itself to keep yourself backed up Smile

    Well I got this from downloading stuff. I run several antivirus and protection
    programs which are all in the same category as Avast, AVG, etc...
    Thing was that I got them in past the security and executed them...

    I'd probably rather set myself on fire than use Vista or Win 7 to be honest.
    I'm not fond of either and Win 7 would prove detrimental to my mod project efforts.
    I'm a hearty supporter of XP... and there's many backup programs there too... I just don't have a backup plan on my system like I do for others.

    Need to buy another TB drive in order to do that... and have been waiting for a good sale.
