Maybe...
  • All user IDs and passswords, if you haven't done those yet.
  • Preferences and application settings, if they're important enough.
  • Export your browser bookmarks and save them.

Good news: After running sfc/scannow in safe mode from an elevated command prompt (windows key-x) and then running AVG clear it seems that most of the symptoms are gone. This doesn't mean that things could still go South, but for now things appear to be back to normal.

(I still cannot do screen captures though.)

Hooray!
What do you mean screen caps aren't working, though? Like if you hit the print screen button and thwn paste it into an image program (Paint/etc), nothing shows up?
Or did it used to auto-save to a folder when you just hit Print Screen?

I used to do control-print screen and the paste into paint.

edit:

I'll be darned. I ran a keyboard checking website on the key and now it is working!

edit:

Firefox 57 is here and it was ever bit the baka-update that I feared.

edit:

I installed the portable version of 55.0.2, synced, and uninstalled 57.

I've been using Firefox 57 - it's OK so far (with a few quirks, such as weird memory management), but I'm waiting for the new version of NoScript. Using a browser without strict scripting control has reminded me of how much I loathe the added garbage on far too many web sites.

Fun with eyeballs:
Spoiler: show
I had cataract surgery on my left eye a few days ago. The doctor basically swapped out my old lens for a nice, new, flexibile acrylic one - it was quick, and much easier to deal with than most dental work (no stitches!).
But, that means that for about the next two months (until I get the right eye done, and get new glasses), my eyes are rather strangely mismatched. My left eye is somewhat nearsighted, with a reasonably sharp vision range of about 1 foot to 2 1/2 feet, and decent larger-object vision beyond that (I can read a wall clock from 20 feet away), only mild or no astigmatism (I'm not sure yet, because it takes a while for the eye to stabilize), no cataracts, and bright/vivid color vision. My right eye is still extremely nearsighted (with a sharp vision range of 3 to six inches), lots of astigmatism, cataracts, and somewhat muted color vision.
So I'm wearing glasses with no left lens, and a right lens with my existing prescription. I'm getting used to it, but it is kind of weird. :wacko:
And of course, I get to put 327,000 different kinds of eyedrops in my eye for the next four weeks. XD

I will also have to get that sort of surgery done. Maybe not in the next couple of years, but not too far away.
