There is an SMP client for multiple processor/core machines that will result in much higher point totals. I can post some more details if anyone is interested. It looks like the "Easy" way to do it is using a virtual machine with Linux running on it. This seems like a little more effort than I want to go for, but the points are dramatically higher.
In other news, I missed rinberg signing up. Thanks for joining the cause!
My grandmother suffered a bout with a chemically-induced confusion that was very similar to Alzheimer's, so I have alot of sympathy for the cause.-- The only reason I didn't sign up before was because of the dialup connection I was suffering from, but I got over that...
With thanks to thecubsfan, I have a functional PC again. The Kaspersky Rescue CD allowed me to boot from CD, and to run their cleaning tool immediately thereafter. First item on the to-do list - backup to the externalhard drive. DONE!
