    Got a big night tonight.
    Have to move the room around for the new desk (it's gonna be sweet!)... which means I have to take the comp apart and put it back together... and since I'll be doing that, I might just install XP Pro tonight too.
    That, of course, will require a slight bit of cd burning.
    Once I get everything put together, I'll come into IRC while I'm burning my backups... then I'll be gone for another hour or two... and return when the change is complete.

    :)

    I've been postponing wiping my system drive and doing a Fresh OS install for a while now, but seeing as I just received XP Pro from the FedEx guy, I think I'll do that now.
    Considering the ease with which XP Home installed my cable modem, I don't see there being any problems getting the internet back up... but I wanted to leave this note just in case.

    Seeya soon. :)

    I've been having some problems during my comp restarts sometimes, where it would lock up just after I rebooted. I've tracked it down to my anti-virus program, which I've now uninstalled. Anyone know of any good free anti-virus programs to replace my old one?

    When i had a problem with windows i found that a free programme called XPDite stoped those annoying "can't find DLL" from showing up. Not sure if the problem is fixed or not but it's ok now :D

    For nVidia users, 56.72 drivers are out. Seem to be running good.
    Also if you haven't updated Windows lately, there are 5 critical updates out.

    Dual screen only means you gotta buy another Monitor. I have 4 monitors in my house but 1 is on another comp 1 of them is like a yellow color (really ugly) and the other 1 has to monitor cable.. I just gotta get a monitor cable for it and ill set up dual monitors.

    *Bump*

    I wanted to alert you all to a lil problem I had to deal with for about 2 hours yesterday morning.

    Downloader.Apropos.D

    This is spyware, but much MUCH worse... it's a trojan... and it's damn hard to get rid of.

    Spybot S&D couldn't get rid of it.
    Webroot Spysweeper couldn't get rid of it.

    AVG Anti-virus couldn't get rid of it.

    I had to manually remove this Trojan, myself... but there's more to it than that...
    You see, if you try to delete this straight off your HDD, it reboots your system and reinstalls itself.
    There's only one way around it;

    Boot into safe mode, find the directory that it was installed (Root:/Windows/system32, in my case), and manually delete it.
    No no.. that's not all.
    Then you have to go to Start>Run>regedit and look under Local Machine>Software>Auto Loader and delete any references to ADupdater, etc... there was only one under auto loader, so it was pretty simple for me.

    After doing this, you'll want to go reboot and run Spybot S&D, Spyware Sweeper, any other adware proggies you have, remove everything regarding Apropos, and then run your anti-virus again to make sure there are no other trojans on your system that Apropos was hiding from you.

    After doing this, AVG found another trojan called Siboco embedded in my windows media player, and the only way I could fix it was to completely uninstall it.

    You guys should check into this immediately... as in right now.

    I suppose the most important question I have is What Program did you install or Email Attachment did you open that caused this Trojan to install itself??

    Did someone send you something?? Was you looking for a good Donwloading Program?? Can you give us more detail as to how you got infected??

    I wish there was something specific I could tell you, but the only things I've downloaded in the last few weeks have been from BU, on the server, and my email... all of which were scanned automatically.
    Besides that, I really don't surf much... so I have no idea how it got there.

    I know I contracted a virus from browsing through a web page, while looking for pics for a sig... sucker just popped right up.

    Sorry I couldn't tell you more.
