I have no idea how this happened, I scanned both my Internal and External HD's and both are malware free. The data in my External HD was corrupted and I ran several disc checks to see if it could find any errors, but no bad volumes were detected.

Whenever I try to access my External HD, I get a warning from ThreatFire tagging it as a serious threat for trying to use the process Shell32.dll which leads to my settings. If I allow the process to continue, the HD won't open and then it says my firewall has been disabled. If I kill and quarantine the process, then my computer does some sort of strange restart where it freezes for about a minute or then the screen goes black and comes back on again.

After all this happens, the next I boot my computer, the system treats it as if a crash happens, and if I try to boot with the Windows default settings, then it gets stuck at the loading screen, if I boot with Last Known Settings That Worked, then my computer runs fine. Nothing works off of my External HD anymore, which is about 150GB of music.

Linux boot disk, pull the data off the external drive, new partition, reformat, move the data back.


To make a long story short, I don't take any responsibility for anything I post here. It's not news, it's not truth, it's not serious. It's parody. It's satire. It's bitter. It's angsty. Your mother's a *****. You like to jack off dogs. That's right, you heard me. You like to grab that dog by the bone and rub it like a ski pole. Your dad? ***. Your priest? Straight. **** off and let me post. It's not true, it's all in good fun. Now go away.
