Shoo! Adwares, worms, trojans, viruses

Total chaos at work with my computer super infected with dunno which stupid virus.

22 infections on Spyware Doctor with its intelli-scan. Dare not imagine now as I conduct the full scan option.... *fingers cross

Got myself into a huge shock when I cannot even access my hard disk drives. My McAfee not updating properly lor!

What the heck is this? Even "recycled" is spelt wrongly la!

Curse the virus inventor!!!!

Waiting for all my full scans to finish now as I rant off my frustrations.

ROAR!!!!

Updates:

Googled and yahooed the entire day away and found that I could have potentially infected my computer with a new trojan. Man this is so darn annoying. Most search results are dated Sept this year. Why so unlucky??!!!! Be careful people!

It didn't help that I:

  1. Delete all my internet temporary files
  2. Scanned entire disk with McAfee
  3. Scanned with Spyware Doctor
  4. Downloaded and Scanned with AVG
  5. Neither with Ad-Aware SE
  6. Read countless forums

救命啊! I don't wanna resort to formating my PC lor... And the thing is that re-formating may not work according to some forums!

See la... So desperate that I'm even trying to access chinese sites to seek answers.

成因:很多病毒例如 auto.exe、niu.exe 都會附帶一個名為 autorun.inf 的檔在C:\或其他根盤內,當用戶點擊C:\時,autorun.inf 內裏的指令便會自動開啟病毒運作。不過,防毒軟件若檢測到病毒存在,或許會隔離或刪除病毒,但 autorun.inf 卻沒有被刪除,所以每當點擊 C:\ 時,autorun.inf 便找不到相對的毒檔,於是便會問用戶用甚麼程式開啟。

同時,由於病毒及 autorun.inf 本身都是隱藏的系統檔,我們必須要在資料夾選項入面選取「顯示所有資料夾和檔案」及不選「隱藏受保護的作業系統檔」,才會看到它們。不過,病毒本身也可能會破壞這個資料夾選項設定,令用戶無法選取或怎樣選也會回復原狀,從而無法查找及刪除它們。更甚的是它們的名稱會出現在右鍵菜單中

解決方法:先執行附件 hidden-repair.reg 以及 Del-Autorun.bat 以修復資料項選項的設定及刪除 autorun.inf,然後重新啟動即可。

至於修復右鍵菜單,則需進入 registry 進行修復:

開始 > 執行 > 輸入 regedit > 確定 > 尋找以下機碼:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MountPoints2\

在此機碼下會有很多CLSID (一串十六進制碼) 的機碼,逐一點擊並展開,如果到最後發現此CLSID下包含了病毒的名稱,例如auto.exe,那麼先抄下該CLSID,然後把整個機碼刪除。再尋找有沒有

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{你剛才抄下的CLSID}有則一併刪除,然後退出 registry 即可

Cannot make out what this person really mean right now. Will try to translate it slowly later.

Homeland

My whole entourage (family) came to the airport to pick me up after I touched down, so did my dog cai cai. He was so excited that he kissed me almost the entire journey home.
Man.. was a good but tiring trip. Updates and pictures to come later cos I am so darn tired now.

Got a good scolding by my overly zealous dog for being away for so long.. lol. So cute.

Grumbles

I'm struggling with my new vista pro OS on my cutie pink lappy.

It was working fine initially and I was still able to install all necessary softwares but a recent patch is giving me huge headaches.

What is 2AF.tmp huh?? It always try to run at startup. Then all the weird weird prompts starts coming.

What's worst is that some websites which are accessible from other PCs can't be displayed on my vista pro...... =( Attempts to source the internet garner not much help except that it seem to be a global problem.

This other headache I am facing is the non compatibility of softwares. Vista is so so so not backward compatible. I used days trying to download the Omnitrader vista link..... Now my bluetooth software can't be installed. All my handphone recordings aren't able to transfer over to the lappy. ROAR!

Favourite Disney Songs

Once Upon a December

Dancing bears,
Painted wings,
Things I almost remember,
And a song someone sings,
Once upon a December

Someone holds me safe and warm,
Horses prance through a silver storm,
Figures dancing gracefully across my memory...

(Instrumental interlude)

Someone holds me safe and warm,
Horses prance through a silver storm,
Figures dancing gracefully across my memory...

Far away, long ago
Glowing dim as an ember,
Things my heart used to know,
Things it yearns to remember

And a song someone sings,
Once upon a December


Once Upon a December (Movie Version) - Anastasia



At The Beginning

We were strangers starting out on our journey
Never dreaming what we'd have to go through
Now here we are and I'm suddenly standing
At the beginning with you

No one told me I was going to find you
Unexpected what you did to my heart
When I lost hope you were there to remind me
This is the start

(chorus)
And Life is a road and I want to keep going
Love is a river I want to keep flowing
Life is a road now and forever
A Wonderful journey

I'll be there when the world stops turning
I'll be there whenthe storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

We were strangers on a crazy adventure
Never dreaming how our dreams would come true
Now here we stand unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you

(chorus)

I knew there was somebody somewhere
Like me alone in the dark
I know that my dream will live on
I've been waiting so long
Nothing's gonna tear us apart

(chorus)

In the end I wanna be standing at the beginning with you


At the Beginning - Richard Marx and Donna Lewis



Part of your World

(Maybe he's right. Maybe there is something the matter with me.
I just don't see how a world that makes such wonderful things could be bad.)

Look at this stuff
Isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything?
Look at this trove
Treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Looking around here you think
Sure, she's got everything
I've got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty
I've got whozits and whatzits galore
You want thingamabobs?
I've got twenty!
But who cares?
No big deal
I want more

I wanna be where the people are
I wanna see, wanna see them dancin'
Walking around on those - what do you call 'em?
Oh - feet!

Flippin' your fins, you don't get too far
Legs are required for jumping, dancing
Strolling along down a - what's that word again?
Street

Up where they walk, up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wanderin' free - wish I could be
Part of that world

What would I give if I could live out of these waters?
What would I pay to spend a day warm on the sand?
Bet'cha on land they understand
That they don't reprimand their daughters
Proper women sick of swimmin'
Ready to stand

And ready to know what the people know
Ask 'em my questions and get some answers
What's a fire and why does it - what's the word?
Burn?

When's it my turn?
Wouldn't I love, love to explore that world up above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world


Little Mermaid---Part of your World - Disney

8th Wonder of the World

If you are wondering why the many posts within a day. Tat's cos I'm flying off and I wun be blogging. So anything that I feel interesting and worth noting, I'll just jot it down now.

Heard from a reality show:
The dynamics between a mother and daughter is the 8th wonder of the world. If the mother likes it, the daughter is not gonna like it.

LOL.

A tribute to Nicole Lai on radio 1003

That tinge of sadness just had to come listening to her EP played on radio.

童话故事里公主都要等人救啊....

Nicole 老师, reality is just harsh sometimes. No wonder we all need dreams to push ourselves forward like how you sang. =''(

All that I can dig out at the moment of our happier times.....

How cheeky you can be even as a teacher. Showing the pimple block technique...

The ones who love you and those whom you have inspired with your voice and teachings.



Throat's constricting and tears are welling up now as I see these pictures and listening to Anna read how we miss you through our smses. Can you hear them from above?

I'll be leaving on a Jet Plane

Into the dark loomy skies I fly soon. Aboard the jet towards Vietnam, Ho Chi Min.

I will miss GF, Cai cai, my dear dear family and not to mention the QYQL Jia Zu ....
I know it's only a short time span but but.... Will definitely miss ya all lor...

As with my usual pre-travel practise of drafting a will with my email composer, I wonder if I have time for it this time. (LOL! It's just a habit la!) Will contents are usually pretty comical given the amount of miserable 财产 I could leave or distribute around. Will structure definitely will not pass the requirements of a legal draft but who cares again right. muahahahaha...

I'll try to find some time for it.

DUN MISS ME OH!

Congratulations

Our dear Le Le has gotten into the finals of the radio 1003's Fight Club contest!
This coming Sunday @ Causeway Point! Do go support her if you can!

You go gal!!!!

Though I am away overseas, I will support you mentally ya!

He has always been there

I am grateful.
That I am brought up in a family where financials wasn't a problem.
That I have great parents who incalcate right values.
That my taoist parents have taught their children to be open-minded towards religious matters.

Yesterday, a dear friend brought me and some others to his place of worship.
I greatly appreciate that he is introducing us his way of worshipping god.
While me and others from various religious backgrounds were invited forward to receive blessings and accept god, we were all originally defensive. We kept thinking why do we have to accept another god and easily discard the one we always prayed to. To me, I have always been geared towards the buddhism way of thinking even though my parents are taoists.

Thankfully, my ignorant self came to a realization that God is universal and multi-lingual. Through the various religious texts, he has imparted his knowledge to human mankind. In his kindness, he noted our differences and chose various paths and means to reach out to us.

I asked the ultimate one up there: "God. Is this what you want for me? Through all the various texts and interpretations I have read in my limited capacity, should I choose this way to worship you?"

God has always come to me in my times of difficulty. Deep inside, I know he is always there when I called out to him. He comes to me in various forms and signs which are so unexpected. When I asked him this question yesterday, the inner voice that he always seeks through my heart answered it for me. The peace that I have always felt came to me. He has not forsaked me. Not now, not in the past and definitely not in the future. I need not receive him once more cos he was always there the moment I entered this world.

I am thankful that I have found my own path and answer. I have allowed my heart to see how others worship god and I'm glad that my way of worship has never been wrong in his eyes.

It is such a wonderful world when you really open your mind and look at things in various perspectives. I'm glad that I was self-motivated enough to take a look into the various religious settings and even tried reading their motivations and texts. I have buddhist scriptures, taoist Way of life, a bible and even some interpretations of the Quran at home. My dad was just talking to me regarding his recently harmonious run which took him marathoning all around religious places in Singapore. He raved at how the muslim mosques prayed. How tolerant they were. And how they were mis-interpreted by some nations around the world. The Iman was very kind to ask politely if they could offer prayer for my dad in their way.

I want to thank another friend who sat next to me and prayed for my grandmother and family during yesterday's congregation. Thank you! =)

Let me Emo!

Aiyo... I super duper love this song.... Lyrics are just so beautiful. Makes me emo everytime I hear it. Its sad yet motivating at the same time...

Heart's melting liao... Sing to me and I'll LOVE YOU! =)

生命有一種絕對 - 五月天

如果我不曾走過這一遍 生命中還有多少苦和甜美
那風中的歌聲 孤單哽咽的聲音是誰
回憶中那個少年 為何依然不停的追
想要征服的世界 始終都沒有改變
那地上無聲蒸發我的淚
黑暗中期待光線 生命有一種絕對
等待我 請等待我 直到約定融化成笑顏

那生命 燦爛煙火般上演 你和我最後都要回歸地平線
留下的足跡 浪花沖走回憶海岸線
靠近我 再擁抱我 請不要讓我的心冷卻
想要征服的世界 始終都沒有改變
那地上無聲蒸發我的淚
黑暗中期待光線 生命有一種絕對
等待我 請等待我 直到約定融化成笑顏

想要征服的世界 始終都沒有改變
那地上無聲蒸發我的淚
黑暗中期待光線 生命有一種絕對
等待我 請等待我 直到約定融化成笑顏

想要征服的世界 始終都沒有改變
那地上無聲蒸發我的淚
黑暗中期待光線 生命有一種絕對
等待我 請等待我 靠近我 再擁抱我
不要走 請不要走 直到約定融化成笑顏
直到我看見生命的絕對.....

Backdated Post

This is really a very back dated post/pictures for the 06 Sept Concert. But like I care that it is. lol

Poor guy. He was super tired after that event and yet forced to take pictures with all of us.

My forever supporters non other than my dear parents!

Backstage with the QBC Dancers.

How Coincidental

Was going through some of my past video clips and I chanced upon that of TradeOurMarkets's investment gang's gathering moments.

It was september last year where the 4 big boys had gathered to discuss the market crisis then. Coincidentally, this year's september is also plagued by bad market news and sentiments.

Such painstakenly captured moments are not to be missed!



Man... How I miss these people...

Virgin attempts

Yeah.! Just wanna show this vid again! So cute right my boy (He was only months old then)! He definitely can do more than this now!

My AIA Policies!!

Kaoz.... When news of AIG's financial troubles came about, I started worrying about my AIA policies.

Already on the losing end and such troubles have to escalate matters. Checking my projected breakeven years, my life policies probably gonna only breakeven when I turn 43 lor!!!! ROAR!

With this stupid trouble thing, you expect me to wait till I turn into 63 before I breakeven meh!?? Fed up.

Adding fuel to that, my prudential unit trusts all became losses lor! My 10% profits all wiped out. Stupid markets!

Hell hath no fury than markets go crazy

Sept 15
The worst drop for the dow jones industrial index DJIA. An incredulous -504.48, breaking through a whole chain of supports. Totally crazy lor.
It is the first ever huge drop I have ever seen in my trading life.

Looking into the technical aspects of that move, it seems like it is very likely dow will drop a further 100 more points before it reach that critical fibonnaci support (see arrow on chart) which I think at this present moment isn't really a strong one.


Omnitrader is propagating a huge list of short calls for me this morning on the sgx exchange. Am so tempted to do some intraday shorts. I'm never really a shortist hence I'm still in deliberation mode. The long term bottom fishers may find this a good time to buy in stocks slowly. Personally I would advocate and prefer to wait abit if I wanna bottom fish since I'm anticipating further drop tonight.

Kaoz... Unbelievable still this 500 plus points drop.

Happy Birthday

To my dearest brother!
Muackz!

Thank you for always being there when I really needed a listening ear.

Gratitude

For the past 4 months, the qyql family members have been learning loads and experiencing things that we probably would not have imagined we could have done. All these, I must really credit it to our dear Mr Hagen Tan. Through him, we have been introduced into music composing, stage presentation and gained various exposures with him on stage.

Our culture has somewhat mould us into such a way where we do not know how to express proper thanks nor apologies. Yesterday my expression of thanks sounded really lame according to him. So Mr Tan, SEE I am writing to thank you le k. Dun say I din.

I really do appreciate the amount of time he is sacrificing for us which is really not part of his obligations to do so. It is really 难能可贵 that we have gotten to learn from him. In a way, we all kinda look upon him as a mentor and teacher already. So here's a really big heart felt

THANK YOU!

瞬间的感慨

最近我的世界有些朦胧也比较灰暗。
发生好多事情,让思绪好混乱,
似乎被一层纱布遮盖眼。
虽然发生比较多伤感的事情,但还是保持着许多感激。

二叔婶的突然过世让全家都很震惊,毕竟她一向都是健康安好的,从没听过有什么病痛。
我记得最后在丧礼和她说的话也仅仅拿一句“谢谢你”
回想起来二叔婶曾经跟我说“有女儿真好,能说话谈天又贴心”
好想哭哦。。。

好多身边的人过世。。除了二叔婶, 阿公也走了。
近期, Nicole 老师也因癌症过世了。
这一整年的对抗中,我一直看到的只有微笑的她。问她也说很好。
好个屁。。。 原来已经末期了。
真的很遗憾, 没能和她上完课程。

一切的一切让我有时候质问生命的价值。人该何去何从。
幸好有一群关心和爱护我的亲朋戚友。 让我觉得世界还是很美的。

谢谢你们。不管在世的或已经离去的,谢谢你们都曾经在我生命中留下烙印。
让这一生不枉此生。=)

我是幸福的。

Thursday, September 11, 2008

你和我最后都要回归地平线

生命的渺小让人很感慨
它的价值在于这一生的无悔

那瞬间她带走毕生的精彩
泪水成了我最后的送别礼物

遗憾没能走完最后那课
但一日为师终生为母
此生永不忘

总有一天地平线相逢

It's been a while

Yup... It has been a long long while or should I say almost an entire year that this blog was left untouched and unloved by me.

So many things were happening too fast and too little time for me to update stuff. I must admit that I'm definitely getting lazier by the day.

Some really random updates:

  1. Cai goes to school at K-9 Kulture (temporarily stopping it after he came home one day with canine flu)
  2. I became part of radio 1003's QuYouQiLi family (Listen to my demos! currently awaiting lyrics for 曲有奇理- 第七期- yue er wan wan demo Hagen and Me)
  3. Am just done with Hagen Tan's 0609 concert as a performing crew
  4. Now busying with another upcoming concert
  5. 2nd uncle's wife (my aunt) passed away suddenly while at work
  6. One of my best vocal teachers Nicole Lai, passed away from Cancer
There should be a whole shitmore of stuff I have yet to recall. Shall leave it as it is now. Its a short entry but who cares anyway. lol.
