Gradually getting online again...

Well in case you're wondering I've been having a nightmare of late. For some weird and wacky reason I got delivered a patch a couple of weeks ago ironically via SMS. It was something to do with the MSI Installer (I think), and I was prompted that I'd need to reboot within 24 hours for it to complete.

Later that night I shutdown my machine and powered it on the following morning which is when the fun began because as soon as the machine attempted to access the network it blue screened.

I tried uninstalling the patch but no joy. Turning off ZoneAlarm helped but in the end unfortunately it came down to a complete PC rebuild. So I've had the joy of data backups, rebuild, and reload to go through and I'm far from done yet.

Oh the joys of technology and as per usual  no-one can explain why this happened. Apparently I'm the only reported case of this but there again I am special, I leave you to decide in which way ;-)
