Have to rebuild Windows yet again (It would be *so* nice if the hardware worked in Linux so I could ditch Windows entirely...)

Woke up this morning to find that there are half a dozen infected (system) files on the Windows partition. I'd really like to know what vector they came in on :( . AVG found the problems, but the free version couldn't heal, quarantine, or otherwise touch them. I suppose I could futz around replacing the files, but then I'd never be able to trust the machine (especially for creating executables), so I'll have to rebuild again.

The annoying part of all this is that I'm so close to being able to move to Linux. Other than voice dictation and PVR software, everything is basically functional. Of course, I don't have a decent system-configuration backup, and there's still annoyances here and there, but for the most part it works. I may not be quite as efficient and "moved in" over here, but that's to be expected what with years of tweaking the Windows environment to optimise my workflow.

Still, going to have to rebuild. So much for getting OpenGLContext out the door this week.
