So, I go through the fix process. An important file in the system 32 folder was either encrypted, or fubared to the point it couldn't be copied and a repair file placed instead. I continued, managed to boot the computer and found some strange errors, including network problems. I managed to get the network up and running, connect to the internet and found a new problem: Avast, my antivirus software, won't load. To add insult to injury, it's now apparent my computer is infected, since I can't even download a fresh copy for use. Otherwise, somebody downloaded something with my computer; probably while checking their #$%damned email, or checking their @#%damned Facebook horseshit, while they used my computer to print, or some other task they thought was important.
Am I pissed? You're damn right I am. Now, I'll have to hot patch the computer, or slave the drive and hope I can eliminate the virus remotely. In a more perfect world, spammers, virus code writers, people that shouldn't be on my computer and anyone else that pisses me off would be beat with sticks for screwing up my day.
Crap, crap and more crap.
