My Computer Has a Virus :(

Sorry for the lack of posts, but I haven't been able to use my computer for almost a week. It has a nasty virus that I've discovered is likely a polymorphic virus (Wikipedia for definition) that cannot be completely purged unless I delete all my .exe files, which would render my computer useless. It also has infected a lot of my personal files. The only thing for me to do is to back up my personal files, and completely reformat my computer and reinstall Windows. Then I'll have to do rigorous scans on my backups that could take days, and then re-install all my programs and re-download old updates, so I may not be back to normal for a while.

I have a lot of reviews that I should be posting, but I get so little time on library computers that I don't have time. When my computer works again (or if I can find time over the weekend), I'll be posting reviews for such books as Camileon by Shykia Bell and Faery Rebels: Spellhunter by R. J. Anderson, which were both awesome!


P.S. - Unfortunately, this may delay my announcement of the contest winner. I'll try to post the winner tomorrow, but I may not be able to. You still have the rest of today to enter!
