From the Management
A slight delay of things this morning. My overnight anti-virus run found an infection, and after quarantining it suggested rebooting the computer and running a boot-time scan. I also take such suggestions because...well, it's smart. It's also slow. A boot-time scan checks your system before Windows loads. So, unlike most scanning, it doesn't run in the background while you work, but you get to watch a lovely black and white screen with gibberish running across it. For three hours.
Fortunately, I eventually realized I have a back-up laptop, but still...
It found a few other infections and quarantined them, though I'm not 100% that everything got cleaned out, so I'm running another system scan with several other anti-malware programs I have, just to be sure. (It's good to have several, since they all search differently, and therefore find different things.)
But we are at least up and running.
