Well I think i may have another case of a virus on my comp'.
 
This one makes all my folders 'read only' in that I can edit things, but if I select 'display by name' or such they revert back once I've left them.
 
Also I can't restore past Febuary 20th. It's not even letting me look at past months, and it gives me a 'restore failed' error. I know I have planty of space for a System Restore left (3GB), so I'm rather pissed.
 
Also it may or may not have caused MSN to crash several times, and erase all of my emots, settings, and display pictures. It's working now though....
 
The only things I've installed are 'Sayz Me', 'NaturalSoft', & 'MBROLA Project', aswell as a few MicroSoft TTS add-ons.

I am seriously considering going home and ordering a new external HD from Dell, copying off all my "important" files, and then just reinstalling Windows XP.
 
I probally will after I tinker with it a bit more, and see if I can't get this shit fixed -____-;

Warg. x_x I've had restore points fail to work properly in the past. However, that was because there was a bad sector on my hard drive and not because of a virus.

Good luck.

Yes warg indeed.

It's not acting funny besides those few things. I downloaded a trial of Norton and that found a few things AVG didn't, but -___- still listing by size.

Strange. x_x

I'd really hate to go back to Norton, though; they way it sucked up resources on my computer was ridiculous. Plus Norton's firewall got screwed up on my old hard drive.
