i hate it
i spent the whole freakin day re-re-re-re-installing my mom’s computer. some files seemed to be corrupted and it was impossible to repair them… i suspect
- a virus
- mom’s careless email handling
- mom’s disk clean up method (which consists of deleting everything that “seems useless” (uh!!))
- other reason.
anywayzzz, she now has a “limited” user account (not admin anymore!) on a brand new service packed, firewalled and patched winxp pc. she has her files on a separate partition, so next time (i see it coming) i will have to reinstall, she won’t lose her stuff (hopefully). i will also install an antivirus software, and schedule a full system scan every week or so… yea. but i’m still thinking that the “human factor” is the biggest threat to the system, haha. i cross my fingers.
