Technical Interlude...



It seems I am always fucking about doing something else besides actually updating this place with music...but it aint like that really...is it?
Anyway, it has been bothering me for some time now. My PC suffered some multiple virus infection a month ago or so and it was just in a moment of stupidity. I forgot I had disabled security stuff to access some crack sites..And so I got infected, loads of shit started happening on screen. I shut the internet off...to cut a L-O-N-G story much much shorter, basically LOADS of things were wrecked and ruined in my windows XP Pro installation. the context menu was all changed...there were files all over the place. there was some real hard to deal with stuff immediately after it happened but, I pride myself on never resorting to antivirus if I can, I prefer to learn and remove these things manually.
I managed to do so within an hour which was bloody good.
However, the aftermath is another story. Since it happened I have been methodically going through things that were ruined and, where I can, fixing them and I must say LEARNING SOOO MUCH (these virus writers are bloody geniuses it has to be said. Unfortunate but it is true).
Anyway I digress...I have decided due to the corrupt right click context menu that I use so much, not being in any working or fixable state any more and also a strange unfixable hanging screen that happens when I right click certain files...(yes I have been conversing with experts from all the tech forums I know and reading loads and no, they are not fixable!) I have decided to reinstall from scratch.
Before you ask...why didn't I backup?!
I did.
In fact I STILL have the complete backed up emergency image of my C: drive sitting there if I wanted to use it!
The thing is, the PC is getting pretty full of software and crap these days so I am thinking of a reinstall anyway so this has just helped me to decide that's all.
I ALWAYS back up the C: drive, every night after hours it is copied to another drive as a whole image. I recommend it to you. Use acronis True Image. It is the easist way to recover a messed up PC!
So I have been backing up setings for all the programs I like to use and also saving stuff like My Documents and favourites and all that other crap...for three days now, making sure I get everything!
Then I created a dvd with every setup file and installer for every program I like to have installed on any PC I work on. LOTS of programs! I am amazed at the number of them I really do use often.
Anyway that took a bit of working out!
So..to get to the end of this ramble all that remains is for me to tell you that I am finished putting off the inevitable and I am now ready to go ahead and take the plunge.
so!
Tomorrow morning when I get up and am ready to start, I am going to wipe this hard drive and start anew.
Hopefully I will be able to log back online by the afternoon and post the next two albums I plan to share.
Wish me luck.
(At least if it goes horribly wrong then I CAN use he c: drive image and within minutes I will have a working XP Pro from a few weeks ago. Only if I cannot get the new install to work!)
Wow, that was a bloody long story eh.
