Did you see if the answer is in the back of the textbook?
Did you try thinking for yourself?

If you want to have a job in IT, you will need to know the following phrase for when something like this happens.

"Hey, it's Windows. What do you expect? Did you reboot?"

I have found this to be a life saver!

This is a serious situation. The entire network has been compromised by LostFold worm. There is no fix. You must reformat the hard drives on all the work stations AND the file server, and then reinstall the operating systems and all applications. You'll also have to flash the BIOS on ALL those computers to prevent it from happening again.

And hey, don't listen to those guys giving you a hard time. We're here to help, you know. So follow my advice and you'll be fine.

now Max,
you know that the only real solution is to switch to a real os.
get openbsd and install on every machine.
otherwise these problems will constantly crop up.

For some reason, one of my users had a similar problem where a folder "disappeared" and searching for it was unsuccessful. Go to the network drive where the folder used to be, open up the adjacent folders and see if it accidentally was moved to another folder. You would think that the search would find it but it didn't. In our situation, it was a case of fat fingers.
