Anti-virus....it IS a virus!

Oh dear! My computer is gone gone gone thanks to a virus called XP Anti-Virus 2008. Just google it and see for yourself how bad this is. Long story short, I thought it was a tool by microsoft to delete a virus that had somehow gotten onto my computer...my kids love to click those "Free Laptop! Click the dancing monkey!" ads that come on the screen so naturally I blamed them.

My husband diligently worked on the computer trying to delete, erase then bring the computer back to the factory settings with no luck. There is no getting rid of this thing. So now I'm working from a blank slate- my sons new computer. He is none too pleased that mom hijacked his computer.

It will take me some time to download the anti-virus stuff and find new photos and all that. I'm so upset, I could cry! Luckily I think I was able to download my screenplays and novels onto a back up file but I'm worried that might carry the virus!

Anyway, stay tuned...I have some excellent new products that I want to tell you about and I will be back in action within the next few days. Until then...use extreme caution on anything that happens to come on your screen and please download anti-viral software (which I did not have!).

Use restore and roll back to a day before you got the virus. My bf just got the same bug awhile ago.

Sorry for your computer woes; I know how very aggravating it is...and I don't run a website:((
I did, once, save my book/screenplay to disk on my old computer but when I opened it up on my new laptop, it was gone:(
Hope you're up and running soon!

A girl in my office had this pop up on hers this morning. She's like, "I'm trying to open our GROUP email service so I can email headquarters about it" ... I'm thinking, "Nooooooooooooooo ... don't open ANYTHING that's going to infect the rest of our systems with a joint server" ... etc. Why do people do such things ... these little virus infliction programmers. Do they REALLY get some kind of sick thrill from this. Must be terrible not having something better to do with your time. So sorry 'bout your computer woes. Hopefully it will get resolved and you'll not lose all your good stuff! xo
