Well here I am after another fun re-install of W7 x64. For some strange reason all my apps started crashing with appcrash in kernelbase.dll. Google was of little help and although I scanned and removed everything possible including 1 rootkit....it still would not come back.
Why is it that no matter how much experience I gain in software there is always some virus out there that can baffle me and bring my system down enough to require a reinstall?
And...through this experience all I can say is the Windows registry is still just as much of a hackfest mess as it was when it was conceived. Actually it's probably far worse now.
