Failed save vs Hacking

Hey, Gamers,

Your friendly neighborhood GM here. When I originally went off the air, it was a brief hiatus for Christmas and also to take care of my partner, Jude, who was having terrible troubles with both his health and his teeth. Recently, those problems have been taken care of, and I've been fighting tooth and nail to be able to keep power and internet coming into my home. It's not been easy.

But now I can't record my podcast. See, the machine that I was using to record was attacked by hackers, and there's a trojan of some kind that keeps uninstalling my sound drivers as well as my printer. Not only do I want to do RPG Showcase again, but I have a business to run as well, and I need my printer to work.

If anyone knows how to take care of this problem, please let me know. Otherwise, I'm going to keep working on getting this show back up again. I am so pissed off at this, and the last month that, I feel, has been wasted. You, my listeners, deserve better than this, but I'm sure that some people would rather just get their kicks messing up other people's lives with their computers.

God Bless, everyone, and I'm still thinking of you. RPG Showcase is not off the air for good, in spite of some e-mails I've gotten (thanks for expressing your concern).

Mike,

I have not heard of a virus that targets drivers. However, the virus you may have damaged some of the operating files. send me an email and I will see if we can figure it out.

I hope you are able to get things up and running again! Worst case, you should be able to boot from your OS CD and reinstall over just your OS files, leaving your data intact.

Want to really help me out? Podcasting is thirsty work. Buy me a soda and I'll be sated and grateful.
