Puter still down

   Well my computer is still down and I am really missing it.  It was full of viruses.  My son says its because I am always getting the cute emails with animated gifs and downloading them.  I didn't think they were dangerous.  Anyway they had to sweep my computer and I hopefully will get it back tomorrow.  I lost everything which is bad, but they saved my pictures, good news.  So I guess I can't open any emails with graphics,  when you get a pop up don't close it using close, alway the X.  Never use internet explorer again and surf using a limited account name.  I sure can't afford to have this happen again and will  be very careful in the future.  I thought as long as I didn't open attachments and didn't download anything I was safe, but the hackers have figured that out.  Darn hackers,  wish they would crawl back in their hole.
 
   Not much going on today.  Work,. work work.  Take care all.

I'm sorry to hear about the computer Julie. These viruses aren't funny. I see you still have your Ruby Lane website. I hope you can get this fixed soon. Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/

Hate that your computer is still on the fritz.  It probably is due in some part to the downloads.  Unless you have a really good anti-virus program, they can sneak in from those emails.  They are usually the ones that get sent all over the place by checking the whole address book.  I've gotten to where I don't even open emails like that for fear of viruses.  I know that they aren't sent on purpose, but the accidental ones are just as bad as the on purpose ones.

Wow I'm always downloading graphics. Scary!  I hope you get it fixed. Thank goodness they saved your photos. That would upset me so much if I lost those. Some are saved to CD but not all.
Have a good night.

I'm always getting jokes and what not sent to me......the ones that say Fwd, fwd. and so on. I don't even open them that is an instant delete. Friends of mine know to let me know in the subject line that it's something personal from me. I think it's horrible that nothing is sacred anymore. Seems you have to watch out for everything, even mail from people you know. (Hugs) Indigo

Viruses, ugh!  David just had to sweep mine as well.  Sorry you've had computer problems.  Good to hear from you.  Work, work, work for me as well.  How is your MIL doing?  De ;)

The IT guys at work told me it's not if you get a virus nowadays; it's what to do when it happens.  There is no virus protection that totally protects our pc's anymore.  I had a malicious piece of spyware nearly shut mine down.  I need to do a sweep of mine but keep putting it off.  How is your MIL?  Chris
