And that is why, mon fereds when I took my brother's laptop HDDs to one of my friends (to salvage the data), he found 5+ viruses (virii?).... each HDD. And he wondered why his lappies were so slow, in spite of having ~2GB procys.

He saw a text box, and clicked away without reading.
I'm gonna get my new hardware. And my worklog here.
