Somehow, buried deep within a zipped archive that I put on to my computer, (which is no longer there), there would appear to have been a 'virus'.
Now, it technically should be called a 'bug' because as far as viruses go, it's not exactly brutal. More annoying in a sadistically humourous way.
Someone, somewhere, has written a code that opens my disc drive on shut down, just before the computer completely powers out. Therefore leaving the user powerless to reinsert the tray because of the lack of power! Oh, how I laughed.... :o(
I have found that if I reboot to shut down the bug remains inoperative, which is a bonus at least; though my current NAV doesn't pick it up. We don't have the internet for atleast another week in the university 'halls of residence' so maybe it is a well known program that I just don't have v-defs. for.
Is this a 'bug' anybody else has experienced and if so, where is the sneaky little bugger so that I can squash it?!
There is also the "Coffee cup" one. This will open your CD trays, but only when you click on the link and should not effect the normal close down of your PC. This one usualy comes on the forum around Christmas time and is good fun. But like I say it only works on clicking the link. j.
