Yeah, so I have a virus...

...so if anyone has received any email from me in the last week or so, it would be best to delete it without opening.

I hate computers.

Damned if I know how I even *got* the damn thing, but as it turns out, it's the kind that requires me to reformat my harddrive in order to eradicate it. Never mind that I have a Packard Bell that didn't come with any of the distribution disks.

Also hate Packard Bell.

Damnit. And I can't even do it until tomorrow - because we have to go in to Radio Shack and ask how the hell they expect us to do this without distribution disks, or risk losing a whole great chunk of pre-installed software, not the least of which is my DVD player.

Gah.

Going to go bang my head repeatedly against a wall now. Later.

There is no virus bad enough
That you have to reformat your whole hard drive.

Go to http://www.sarc.com

There is a free scanner there that you can do ever the web.

If it can't clean the virus it will point you to a way you can get rid of it without having to reformat your whole computer.

Good luck

If it is the Klez Virus (and it sounds like it.)
You can remove it by booting windows into safe mode and running the program at this link

Re: this is your youngest sibling
There's a password retrieval thing on LJ, kid. Since you already *have* an account... it's beene-mailed to you. It should be there now.
