Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
alright my computer is quite old by computer standards. About 6 years. It's been gutted, hit by lighting, dropped off chairs, the works
but I need it to live because I can't afford a new one
I recently got infected with the Antivirus Live thing, so i decided I might as well take it out as soon as I was aware it had installed itself
I followed the instructions, malwarebytes took care of it I think
I hope so, I can't update mawarebytes because of Error Code 732 (12029, 0). But that's a different topic I think
and right now I can only boot in Safe mode with networking. Trying to get into regular mode makes the computer load normally uup until the XP screen with that loading bar, then it flashes a bluescreen for about a millionth of a second and then the computer clicks a little and it restarts. I've managed to catch the word "corrupted" on the blue screen
I'm not tech savvy whatsoever but I messed around with starting it in different ways like a fucking chimp and I found out that, if I started it in safe mode with networking, it runs down the list of (processes?) it's running to start, and at the bottom it says like "press ESC to stop loading SPTD"
pressing escape and cancelling this lets me boot up, letting it go makes the computer click and restart again
googling and wikipediaing around a little it says that SPTD is part of daemontools? Did it get corrupt and is borking my computer? I was going to uninstall it then and there forever but I might as well ask before doing anything I can't take back.
help me I'm too poor to buy a new computer
and I don't have TV so I'll be stuck reading books all day every day
