Nah... I ain't worried. I'm a virus vet.
This is probably my 30th reinstall over the years.
Unless this is some new super virus I've never heard about before, the only thing I lost were any executable files I'd downloaded since my last backup of programs I regularly use (which, unfortunately, was in early October).
It's just annoying. It's mostly the emulators and the screen catpure software I'd used to make videos for the earlier systems. It's also any scripts that I was using. I'm 99% that the Xtras are completely safe and sound.
I just can't run any unguarded execuatble files until I virus check everyting with Kaspersky and a few other programs. It sets me back at least a day there, plus if I need to make videos again and I need to find stuff again to do it. That is, if it doesn't get re-infected, which September proved to me is a possibility if I'm not careful. Easy going is the way until I'm sure that I'm completely safe.
It'll be cool.
PS.... If it did wipe my drive clean, all it's got is the PSX games and the stuff you guys have gotten to me that haven't been integrated yet. I've got several XBoxes with a majority of the other stuff on them. Much of it is way more up to date than any of my links online.
