Ah! Nothing happened! Still the same old story! This is not its fault. It's a symbol, after all, of our brave old world, full of junk, trash, and garbage but looking cleanly vacant.

I followed Brinks instruction though I was doubtful of its consequence since all this is, as I've explained above, ensued from the same procedure I did before--deleting the recycle bins of the drives to erase the remnants of the former infection. May God rescue us from such a hypocritical full recycle bin which shows innocently clean!

This less than nothing.
