Reformatting Chiyo-chan (UPDATED)

I'm afraid this ick that I picked up at has proven to be too much for me any my battery of antivirus/antimalware/antispyware suites.  I'm going to be nuking my hard-drive... it's the only way to be sure.

Hopefully, I'll be back online Wednesday.

UPDATE:  Reformat complete, updated to Service Pack 3, new versions of my antivirus and spyware programs, Firefox installed, yadda yadda yadda.  Tomorrow comes the fun stuff.

I don't think I lost too much.  I never saw any sign of ick in my external drives, or my mp3 files, or my pictures, so I saved them all to DVD before I started in with the sandpaper.  The one thing that I can't replace is the master version of "...Angel.", my AMV. Hopefully it's clean.

Bedtime now.

1 Ouch... that's got to suck after you spent so much time troubleshooting it. Kuro here is scheduled for a clean install of the Windows 7 release candidate in the next week or so, but in her case it's an elective operation. Hope Chiyo-chan is back to her normal self before long!
