Last Monday I suffered from what I’m calling a computer malfunction, but the truth of the matter is I got a virus. My anti-virus was down for about an hour and in that time I managed to get a virus.
I want everyone to stop reading right now and make sure their anti-virus is up and running properly.
I tried everything to get rid of this virus, but what I ended up doing was reformatting my computer. I was able to fix the problem doing a nondestructive reformat – this means restoring your computer to the point that you bought it, but your files are not touched. So, while my files were safe (my clients can breathe a sigh of relief here), I lost all my fonts. If you’re a graphic designer or fontaholic like me, you can understand the emotional stress this caused me.
