Miss Me???

Two weeks ago - on Saturday night - was just like any other night for me... Matt was here and we were watching TV while both of us were on our computers. (We are such nerds!) I was looking at projects from Tip Junkie moving from one blog to the next and sometimes going to other blogs that were on the sidebars of the blogs I was looking at.

I do this all the time so I had no reason to be cautious.
All of a sudden I get a pop up. I thought it was odd, but clicked on it to make it go away thinking it was telling me I had just won something or it wanted me to do a survey. Meaning I didn’t even read it! Next thing I know my whole computer is messed up! It kicked me off the Internet, wouldn't allow anything I clicked on to come up, and it slowed the entire processor down.
Couldn't open Mcafee.
Couldn't open Windows Defender.
Couldn't even open Microsoft Updates.
So frustrating!
I had gotten a virus/worm/malware somehow!
I immediately disconnected from my Internet so the hacker or whatever it was couldn't mess with my computer. I kept trying to fix it, but I was unsuccessful. This is the second time in the last year I have gotten a virus/worm/malware. Why/how does this keeping happening?
Matt's first response was to ask if I was on a porn website! Really?!?! A porn website??? No, I was not on a porn website!
Thankfully I am still friends with the computer guy at my last job and he was willing to fix my computer. This is the second time he has helped me with this. He is awesome!

I had not one, but two virus/worms/malwares! Two! OMG! 

This is why I haven't blogged. My only Internet access (with the exception of work) has only been from my iPod. So glad I have that to at least check my email and the blogs I have been going to for a long time.

Stay tuned for my Christmas update.
