I usually have my computer switched off when no one is using it, but i left it running by mistake Thursday evening connected to the net. When i started working on it on Friday - all sorts of weird stuff was happening. I couldn't access the net properly, half my applications weren't working. ..
Complete disaster - i had been hit by some kind of internet worm. But serves me right - the only protection i had running was crappy XP Firewall.
The clever bugger would eat over my real executables and then make a copy of itself and rename it to the executable it had just munched.
Anyhow, i was able to backup most of my stuff before formatting the HD and have now re-installed XP pro on my computer.
I've downloaded Firefox 1.0.5 - is anyone else experiencing problems with smooth-scrolling on it?
