Virus


So I had the most brilliant post EVER written up last night and I went to download a picture and my computer freaked out. I don't know how serious it is, but I may not have home access for a few days. I WILL be here tomorrow--I have a fantastic guest, Catherine Stine, and her post is already set.  Other than that, though, it is possible this week I won't have home access, so no blogging and limited commenting.

  1. No NAKED Tuesday!??! :-(

    Will stare at the gorgeous llamas instead then! :-)

    Take care

  2. No shaved llamas for naked Tuesday? Still, that sucks about the computer. I hope it is well quickly.

  3. Hope it's fixed soon. And why does it always happen when we have the most brilliant posts ever written up?

  4. Download a free version of Malwarebytes, install it on a flash drive, take it to infected computer and boot infected computer into safe mode, install Malwarebytes. Run full scan.

  7. That's why my husband has the most secure anti-virus program known to man on my computer, because I'm always hitting sites or downloading something with malware or a virus. Just be careful with the free virus programs as they can make it even worse.

    Yes, been there, done that.

  8. Thanks so much for the sympathy guys! I have instructions for resetting it back a day or two, so I am trying that first, but Michael, I will install that, next!

  11. HA! Help from a friend to reset it to Sunday and even managed to not lose document work! Man, I wish I was better at this, but in absence of talent, at least I have friends.

    The HOW: Open in Safe Mode (F8 for Windows) and when it asks you WORK in safe mode? Say NO. It will then open with a restore option and the dates available to restore TO. Seems to have worked beautifully.

  12. Daaaaaaamn it, I hate when computer problems get in the way of a good time!

    Hope things aren't too bad (or costly, rather).
