Lagniappe: Virus’s and RFP

While working on an RFP for work, I somehow got hit with a pretty nasty virus. So if working on a RFP isn’t painful enough, try basically having to do whole sections twice 🙂

Went thru about 3 different Antivirus scans including the one provided by my company and couldn’t get it removed.

Lost a couple of files including parts 2 and 3 of my latest series on Retention.

Thanks to a recommendation at CNet; I finally loaded Avira AntiVir Personal (free, my favorite price) and it found five occurrences of this particularly offensive issue.

All the symptoms have gone away, and the performance on this machine is back to normal, so I’m hopeful that I got it cleaned out.

Hopefully, I’ll get caught back up this weekend and be able to salvage my posts (I had it in word while I was writing) or recreate them from my notes.
