Corrupted file

April 24th, 2008 at 04:23 pm

Well I got my computer back today,which cost me $50. But that's ok because my computer is working. The tech said I had a corrupted file, I have a rain check for Best Buy and will go tomorrow and pick up Norton Anti Virus software.
I added $2 to the challenge because I had breakfast and lunch at home
I also have a slight tummy ache today, so I am just taking it easy.

    Egads, a corrupt file! That's far worse than spyware! No, really.

    In the past, corrupt files for me meant the drive platters were physically damaged somehow. Perhaps dust or warping from overheating? Don't know for sure, but it's the greatest killer of hard drives out there.

    Only real fix for that is to get a new hard drive and transfer all your stuff to it before it eventually dies.

    At least with malware, you can still re-use your hard drive but not physical damage....

    On the other hand, I could be over-reacting and it's something more benign. But, I'd make sure your back-ups are up-to-date, just in case.
