Wrning!! Non-Ars topic.
I was reading about an insidious virus that is set to go off tomorrow. I have run tests on my machine and I believe I am clear. As a precaution, I am backing up all my Ars Mad files. Screw work related stuff, I will insure the safety of what is important!
Anyway, a precaution suggested to me was to disable my radio before I go to bed, start up in the morning using safe mode. If it starts up, I am in the clear. If it does not, I am infected, but not connected to the net. Start normal and run one-care again, and retest.
But I am an idiot, and I have no computer education or training whatsoever (funny that I have an IT staffing job). I don't know if I have recieved sound advice or not. Many of you are much more knowledgable than I. Anything you would suggest?
