    I think this was mentioned a while back, but I couldn't find the thread. Anyways, every file, folder, etc on both of my hard drives are now marked as read only, and changing the flag under the file's/folder's properties has no effect. I'm running WinXP with SP2, my virus scanner didn't pick anything up, and I'm starting to run out of ideas. Does anyone have any expeience with this issue?

    Of course you didn't find any viruses. XP switched all your files to read only because it figured it's the ultimate measure against competing ones.

    Geez. For some obscure reason, I first read this as "All my flies are read-only".

    You and your goddamn pleonasms.

    One day, you're going to end up dead in a ditch for that stuff. Just wait and see.

    How would he see when he's both dead, and in a ditch? Being in a ditch alone would obscure his vision...
