I'm about to throw my computer onto this junk pile! Figuratively speaking, of course. This satisfying photo came from flickr. (I'm using DH's computer now.)
My computer got a virus and I had the whole thing wiped clean. Now I'm trying to get all my stuff back on it, like my operating system, for starters. I have an external hard drive with my photos and files, thankfully. I had McAfee protection, but it didn't work in this case. Apparently hackers are targeting computers with McAfee and Norton security systems, according to the repair techs.
Helpful hint: If you get a screen saying that you have a virus, and another screen pops up offering to fix the problem if you simply click on "Install," don't touch it! Even though it looks like official Microsoft stuff. Those are villans looking for your credit card info. I didn't fall for it, but it's still a hassle to fix.
If you have sent me an email in the last week, it will be a while before I get to read it. I'm not ignoring you :) Don't worry; I'm not contagious.
