comment MBR/Boot sector wiping virus/trojan?
I didn't bother to repair the MBR. He only uses it for web surfing and checking e-mail, so data loss isn't a concern. I wiped the drive with the Adaptec firmware then built new partitions and reinstalled. I've never heard of "DropMyRights" before. I'll have to go check it out.

comment Change /etc/, /var/ permissions to 777
I was operating under the belief that root wouldn't login from console due to /etc/passwd being 777, rather than it being disabled. I'm not familiar with CentOS specifically anymore.

From the original question, I don't believe that console access will work either.

comment Latency of CPU instructions on x86 and x64 processors
One cycle, except when it's "free" (in parallel when pipelines line up correctly) or takes longer due to a cache miss. :-)

comment Why won't IE10 download anything?
Of course, the next question is "Why does it keep happening?". Is it normal to have to reset the browser every like this every month or 2?

comment Latency of CPU instructions on x86 and x64 processors
Whether you need it for real or for fun doesn't change the answer for this processor line. Have you considered switching to a more deterministic processor, such as a Propeller chip, instead?
