The Bad: My wife, moving my 'older' computer to a new desk. "Honey, why won't this turn on when I hit the button?" Ugh, didn't have a chance to look at it, but I'm hoping its just the video card getting knocked halfway out of the slot (its happened before).
The Fugly: I check my computer Sunday morning. Every exe, dll, sys file on my new machine has a virus on it. Looks like about 5 different viruses.
My antivirus (AVG) checks incoming files, d/led files, etc. It scans every night. I have a software firewall (ZoneAlarm) that makes sure no one is breaking in... yet every DAMN THING on my machine is infected. I was kinda hoping that AVG had a glitch in one of the updates or something, but seeing as iexplore.exe was infected and I couldn't open it, I was screwed. My other machine didn't turn on, and I had far too much to do to actually work on either. The only other thing it could be is we had an 'under a second blackout' in my house on friday morning, so it was sitting on the login screen all day (antivirus and firewall turn on when I log in). But even so, why didn't it find the virus friday night? If anyone has any idea how this coulda happened, I'm all ears. It sucks that it happened, but it sucks even more that I have no idea how it happened, so I don't know how to safeguard myself so it won't happen again.
Tonight I have a class, so I won't get in until after 8:30... so maybe I'll have time to get my old machine back up. Then I'll have to wait until tomorrow night to wipe my new box clean and start all over again from scratch. Damnit all to hell.
How did your weekend fare?
