So after getting the super new machine I immediately infected it with the same virus/bug/whatever that goaded me into killing my old machine. I've spent the past 4 or 5 days running virus scans, spyware scans, and malware scans, deleting files, rebooting in Safe Mode and repeating all those steps, but to no avail.

Then last night, Ad-Aware and Norton both updated their bug definitions and after a quick scan of both in Safe Mode it appears that I am bug-free.

I still feel a little jittery and untrusting.

But it seems that the new super cool machine is working now. Which hopefully means I can start updating the blog more often and actually get more reviews written, as well as trying to get another creative project organized. We'll see.

  1. Yikes, that sounds awful. I went through a similar situation when my WoW account got hacked, prolly through the use of a keylogger. I installed a bunch of anti-virus, anti-malware stuff after that. It's awful when that happens, especially on a brand new have my sympathies, hope all is good going forward.
