    Goodbye CA?

    As some of u might know, my computer is getting ass raped by a virus. It disabled my anti-virus and it sometimes fucks with my mouse and keyboard, so that i can't use it. It also gives me about 5 - 10 blue screens every day so I'm gonna have to reformat my computer. But of course, everything will be deleted. So I'm wondering if i can copy the CA files, install an old version of CA, and replace those files. Will i still need to download or will it just patch without the need to download?

    ...You have a virus on your computer, and you're worried about CA?

    Lol i don't care about the computer cos i know how i can fix it. I know where the virus is from, i just don't know how to get rid of it. that's why im not worried. I was expecting it anyway. But since i found out after it disabled my anti-virus, i couldn't do anything about it so i just let it fly. But as for CA D: i don't wanna re-download cos i have a cap on my internet.
    And iHolyElement can u make me a sig for me? i asked 007 but hes taking quite a long time and he doesn't like doing anime style n shit so D:

    get a better firewall... and antivirus. kaspersky is free if you know what your doing, and its good. but if you MUST format, save the installer on a 5 cent flashdrive

    also. porn+torrents=often virus. learn that quick lol

    if you have another working computer somewhere that u can use, u can take the hd out and put it in a diffrent computer.

    since the hard drive isn't being booted from, the virus isnt activated. so u can use your favorite antivir and get rid of it.

    ive had to do this too many times and it is acctually very easy.
