Can you smell this? It is the smell of a brand new computer!
Or maybe not...My computer recently got infected. I scanned with Avast, Malware Bytes, Ad-Aware (twice) and Spybot. While the two latter ones did find files that had to be removed, it was not sufficient to put my computer back on the right track. Browsers kept crashing or consuming enormous amounts of RAM, Google search results were redirected to odd places, AVG disappeared, etc.
As I was already planning to do so anyway, I made a back up of everything and formatted my computer. I just finished re-installing Windows XP and some other stuff.
That's one of the reasons I didn't blog in the past few days. The other one is that I had forgotten my password and reset it. I wrote down my new password on a sheet which has mysteriously disappeared since then. I suspect my mom put it somewhere. I curse at the thought it could be in the recycling bin, as it also had some information from when I installed Portal and Steam. Argh.
And now my cat won't shut up because she saw discs reflecting lights on the ceiling and has been mewing practically non-stop for almost 2 hours. Shut up, bitch.
