livin’ la vida reboot

I absolutely hate computers. After a bout of system hangs for the past couple of weeks, I’d been Googling for answers. A lot of them pointed to a whole bunch of regsvr32 nonsense along with restoring an older version of oleaut32.dll using MCREPAIR. Unfortunately, with Windows XP’s WFP (Windows File Protection) turned on, reverting that DLL which is protected by WFP was next to impossible.

Eventually, the machine ate itself and refused to boot anymore this past Friday around 6:30 PM. So, I’ve spent this weekend doing a fresh re-install of Windows XP Home and getting all my various pieces of software re-installed as well. Needless to say, I’m not a happy camper.

I’m absolutely disappointed at Microsoft, yet again. No big surprise there …
