The One That Got Away

Computer had some malware. I don't know how it penetrated the defenses, but it infiltrated somehow, causing a major meltdown. I can no longer run RMXP or RMVX on this computer, at least not without a major registry overhaul!

This means that the planned "Menu Tutorial" will have to be put on hold until the relocation. And of course, TGP has been put on hold once again too. I just don't have the time for that at the moment. I can still use RM2K3, so will be focusing on that over the next few months. Perhaps this will give me a chance to design some Windowskins for both RMXP and RMVX, and some more FAQs.

All things happen for a reason, so whatever the reason is, this isn't really a great loss (since everything has been backed up), just a little setback.

Awww, I feel for you. Believe me, I've experienced the harsh reality of malware as well. I hope you can get it fixed with your regular virus protection and don't have to reinstall your OS or anything. Ugh...

Well, way I see it is that it's about time I reinstall the OS anyway - too much clutter - but I was thinking of Windows 7 and/or Linux. We'll just have to see how it pans out after relocation in August.

Would definitely go with Linux, but Win7 came with my laptop and I have to admit, it isn't so bad. Actually I like it heads above Vista, which was a chore to work with.
