On The Bright Side

No one has detonated a nuclear device in the oil plumes that no one is investigating.

Or discussing.

Or reporting on.

The Intertubular Bells

This is right up there with broadcasters whom I like, so they remain nameless, that think scooping a story is OK even if listening in on phone calls and such is illegal.

Fearing damage to access. H/T.

If You Can’t Read This

Update:Apparently a new rootkit is the problem. Since this isn’t my balliwick, you may want to take it to someone who spends their time cleaning these things up. Duffers like me format C; and re-install. YMMV

Then go here,

1. Boot from your Windows XP CD or DVD and start the recovery console (see this link on how to use recovery console)

Once you are in the Repair Screen..

2. Type this command: CHDIR $NtUninstallKB977165$\spuninst

3. Type this command: BATCH spuninst.txt

4. Type this command: systemroot

5. When complete, type this command: exit

In case you missed it, I’ll leave this up until the biscuits chili are is done.

Update: Microsoft recommends this work around.

1. Boot from your Windows XP CD or DVD and start the recovery console (see this Microsoft article for help with this step)

Once you are in the Repair Screen..

2. Type this command: CHDIR $NtUninstallKB978262 $\spuninst

3. Type this command: BATCH spuninst.txt

4. Type this command: systemroot

5. Repeat steps 2 – 4 for each of the following updates provided by FindMeFollowMe:

* KB978262
* KB971468
* KB978037
* KB975713
* KB978251
* KB978706
* KB977165
* KB975560
* KB977914

6. When complete, type this command: exit

Looks to me like uninstalling the updates works.
