OK. I see.
It must be the updates.
I use all good software. I use Microsoft Office 2016, Final Draft 9, CoffeeCup, Android Studio, Avid Pro Tools, Avid Media Composer, FL Studio Signature, Adobe Master Collection CS6, Izotope RX, Davinci Resolve, MagicBullet Suite, Waves Complete, RadioDJ, Mixxx, the Akai MPK88 Pro’s utilities that came with the keyboard, and a whole bunch of software synths. None of this software is left-handed.
I say the updates because on the RadioDJ box, MS forced updates on it (Windows 10) and it corrupted the music database as well as did some other things that I didn’t want to even think about troubleshooting. Reinstalled the radio station. Didn’t help. Updated the playout suite. Still no dice. Then, I tried to do my news script and Office kept shutting down randomly. I ran virus scan. Nothing. Made sure it was up to date, ran it again. Nothing. Saw that it took a forced update so I tried to restore it back but all of my restore points were deleted. Left with no alternative, I reinstalled Windows. That is typical of Windows 10. My laptop isn’t as bad but I just reinstall it just to eliminate any impending surprises.
I did have Acronis some years ago but I stopped using it. I will start using it again. Thanks for that advice/ reminder. Totally forgot about that.
I do radio/tv/film/music production and that I know of, none of my post-production clients have given me infected files. I use three Panasonic AG-HMC80 cams and have never gotten sick files out of any of them… Just thinking out loud.
No… Nothing funny. Oh. And I don’t go on questionable sites, porn sites, software download sites…
