    Ok something is bad, let's erase that and use this something worse. At least is not something bad like before.

    The way world affairs are evolving, they migh as well abolish elections since the winners are just powerless figureheads. Survivors will fight for leadership with sticks.

    So not long after getting Tekken 7 the HDD in the laptop i got for my mom not long ago broke .... Damn the timing.... Luckily she got a bit of money and i think i can make a few extra cash as well and get her a cheap 120 Gb SSD, since even 2nd laptop HDD prices are so high it just doesn't seem worth it...

    I've been infected by a bitcoin miner, poop. Saw it quite rapidly since it maxed out 2 of my cores. Now I just need to find out how to get rid of it. The name of the exe (mine.exe) is common enough that it's hard to find some specific info on it. I know where it places itself, but it's hidden.

    Find the exe, right click it then properties, set security and remove the system, force delete it and clean your registry up

    The issue is that it hides itself.
    Using task manager, the thing closes itself before I can see anything. But using other processes, I can see it starts shortly after exiting task manager.
    Using ProcessMonitor, I can see action going on around C:\Users\Alex\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows, most specifically a mine.exe in it. But if I open that folder, nothing. Using CMD and commandlines to see hidden files, I also find nothing. With that said it hasn't started itself again (apparently) since I rebooted my PC. Funnily enough I can't pin down the exe itself, but I found the guy emails since it was part of the commandline used to start mine.exe. Or, the email he used for his mining site account. I sent him an email asking how to remove it, who knows, maybe he'll answer. (most likely not)

    Edit: Despite the miner not starting again, I looked a bit more. The folder in which miner.exe was supposed to be didnt seem to hold any hidden miner.exe, but it held a hidden svchost.exe. I looked around and apparently this folder isn't meant to have one of them, people even specifically mentioned this was a shady location for a different bitcoin miner. So I deleted it, nothing bad seems to have happened.

    nuke it with hitman pro, disable by removing read/execute permissions... most of these things have an exe component, and a rundll component executed as a scheduled task.

    Bought a new laptop with Windows 10 on it. Tried it for about three days - it's now running Windows 7.

    Dear god, Microsoft. I don't want my OS to be advertising to me. I don't want forced updates. I don't want some stupid metro-hybrid start menu. I just want an OS that stays the hell out of the way.

    Is despising when things change a part of getting old? I'm beginning to feel like I'm becoming a racist grandpa, except instead of hating different races I just have strong opinions on how many genders there are and how much better OSes were back in the day.

    I don't know what the escape plan is after support ends for Windows 7 in 2019. Every experience I've had with Linux has been shit. ("Oh, to get your printer to work you just need to recompile your kernel and....") and I couldn't see myself spending so much money on a Mac.

    Windows 7 is still the best for me, but i like Windows 10, maybe because I use it offline.

    Well, when it's suggesting apps to install etc, I guess that's a form of adverising.

    Really? Within 10 minutes it had suggested I try out the rebadged Internet explorer known as edge, and told me what a great deal office 365 is.
