I don't know how it happened but my normal computer took a major shit last night.
I surfed the web, checked my mail, everything was cool. I got off the web and decided I would do a computer scan while I snoozed. It takes a while and I figured it could do it's thing while I sawed logs.

Got up this morning and see a fucking warning about some fucking infected file. I clicked out of that and my monitor lit up like a fucking pinball machine with twenty extra games.

Can you say FUBAR?
 Fucked Up Beyond All Recognition?
It won't let me do a God Damn thing.
No restore, no internet, no Windows, Croaked.

I said Fuck it and turned it off, apparently there are several of the little nasties battling each other over control of my hard drive.

Dirty fucking sonsabitches.

In my eyes, if there was ever a reason for Capitol Punishment, hackers like these would be first up against the wall.
Pissed off? Oh, you fucking betcha I am pissed off.
So, I went to town and cooled my heels, made a few phone calls and I am still fucked.

I came home, unplugged the fucking thing, swapped it out for my old one, and it fucked me too!

Three mother fucking hours I have been dicking with this cocksucker.

I believe it is currently in Safe Mode because the colors are all fucked up and the borders are all the wrong color.

Can anyone tell me what the fuck System Idle Process is?
It locks this motherfucker up tighter than a drum. It has something to do with Windows and you can't kill it. It takes up 99% of my processor activity according to Task Manager but like I said, ya can't turn it off.

I had to reboot the fucker several times, delete and reinstall (SPIT!) Verizon twice and I just now got online at what. 2 o'clock in the fucking morning?

I have been fucking with this shit since 9 P.M..

My uncle seems to have too many computers laying around, I do believe I will ask him to donate one to the cause , at least until I can find an electronic sledge hammer to kill some fucking viruses with.

I think this pretty much sums up my feelings at this point.

Seek and Destroy.


  1. Busted: Take a flash drive to your public library. Download a copy of MalwareBytes, which is one of only two antivirus tools that Mr. Brilliant (who has over a decade experience in network administration and PC desktop support) trusts. The other is Kaspersky, but that requires an investment of fifty bucks (sixty if you want the firewall). Run MalwareBytes on your a full scan and do it repeatedly until it's clean.

    And stay away from the Russian porn sites, willya?

  2. Thanks for the heads up honey...

    How did you know?


  3. So frustrating. I try not to be dependent on this machine, but here I am chewing the desk when it shuts down with no explanation other than the fact that it doesn't like Photoshop.

  4. Get a MAC . . . I hear they work fine.

  5. N j∆ill has some EXCELLENT advice . . .

    Where DO you get these viscious malawsre's?

    If yer gonna run old PC shit with holes in them as big as The Titanic at least get some basic free antivirus ware . . . used to be TONS of it out there . . . before I went MAC . . . .


  6. I had antivirus shit, AVG and Windows Defender, complete with a firewall.

    It still got through and my ass is still throbbing.. Fucking Hackers.

    Basically, System Idle Process is Windows twiddling its thumbs waiting for something better to do.

    Should you ever end up with a spare PC on hand, you might try Ubuntu - no nonsense like that there, and worms / viruses targeting linux are almost unheard of.

    If you are really fed-up with Windows, or just feeling a bit frisky, you can download a "liveCD" version, that lets you try it out without installing (runs fairly slow, since it has to load everything off of the CD each time instead of the HD). If you decide to install, it can install beside Windows, and give you a choice at reboot as to which operating system to run.

  8. Yeah, that happened to me last year. You fucked yourself clicking on that "warning" -- same as I did.

    I went for almost ten years with no antivirus, but the fuckers are getting trickier -- getting you to explode your own computer.

    It's true what they say -- an ounce of prevention is more valuable than a pound of cure.

    I had to reinstall my operating system and go to the library to download all the drivers and reinstall them. It was a major pain in the ass because it meant I lost all of my bookmarks and email addresses and archived emails.

    Clicking on my name will take you to a post I wrote about what happened to me.
