    I need a beer and sometime to game. Working on crap from home now to keep up with many changes. Lovely. Easter can't come fast enough.

    Okay Lurk... if indeed L4D is changing your settings by itself without you knowing, this will prevent that:

    In your steam games list right click Left4Dead and click properties. Then click the Set Launch Options... button.

    Paste this:

    +voice_forcemicrecord 0

    in that box and click ok. See if that helps any.

    Just wanted to let you know that I might not be around tonight... I seem to have caught some virus pretending to be an anti-virus program, and I'm likely gonna have to wipe/reinstall.

    I've dealt with a number of those. Some are easy to remove, others are a total pain in the ass. If its not a rootkit you should be able to remove it. I'd recommend bleepingcomputer.com. It may take a couple days, but they can save you from a fresh install.

    I'll add it to my bookmarks, but it's too late to save me from the fresh install.
    Truth be told; I was thinking about it anyway... too much installed as it was, and I wanted to combine my C: and E: partitions back into one drive anyway.

    Now it's all about updates, protection, and deciding what games I want to reinstall.
    Anyone know of any good (free) anti-malware programs?

    I don't have any complaints with the free version of AVG. Its certainly prevented a lot more than Norton ever did. I've been running this rig for... 6 months now? No problems whatsoever.

    For the software acting like a virus....there is usually a single EXE file running the whole thing. Safe mode, look in c:\documents and setting\(login ID)\application data. Look for a crazy named file and usually it only has one EXE in it. Rename it to .old and reboot. You might need to run MSCONFIG to remove the start up service/shortcut.

    SuperAntiSpyware. It's heavy on the resources but it works on most spyware.

    Ya, I forgot I had volleyball practice for Battle of the Businesses. I'll be on tomorrow evening after 8 to midnight, at least, though.
