I was looking forward to another night online last week, when my computer gave me a disturbing message.
It slowed down considerably and I couldn’t access anything. A virus scan failed to resolve the problem. Finally, Internet Explorer was completely unfunctionable. I had to do the unthinkable, completely reformat the hard drive and re-install Windows XP.
That meant re-installing every program I had on the computer. Luckily, all my important documents were on an external hard drive, so there was very few adjustments. However, my screenplay software hasn’t been installed due to a upload problem with the disc.
The experience left me with a very valued lesson. Always be prepared for the unthinkable. Back up your stuff!!
