Turning the Failsafe Key in the Hatch

I seem to have picked up a virus/trojan/malware/disease whatever.

Windows has decided that to continue I will need to do a complete reinstall. From scratch.

I conservatively predict this will consume 6 to 9 hours of my life.


You kids have fun.

Yow! Didn't get your H1N1 vaccination, Lemmy? I'm sorry that happened to you.

WV = eyeasp. I wonder if that's the evil snake that got you.

Now that sucks bigtime. The "youtube" from a friend on FB virus really had me scared, but I was smart enough not to fall for that one. Good luck with the reinstall.

Nice thing about using a library computer. Rebooting or whatever you call it is someone else's problem.

For some reason, the title of this post conjures up an image of Larry Hagman and Henry Fonda sitting at a table with a phone between them.
