    Default Brilliant!!

    Quote from Computerwolrd's Friday Fryup today:

    Bad case of China Syndrome
    Symantec does its thing to combat piracy... for Microsoft. The various Norton anti-viruses got befuddled, and assumed some legit files in the Chinese edition of Windows XP Service Pack 2 were Trojan Horses, and quarantined them.
    That, unfortunately, meant Windows no longer starts up, not even in Safe Mode. Given the size of the Chinese market, there’s no knowing how large a problem this is but “huge” probably covers it. The delicious irony which will have at least Microsoft smiling sweetly is that many of the killed Windows installations were pirated and without restore discs.

    Deliberate??? Conspiracy theorists, unite!
