Computer Issues

A week or two ago, I had some issues with my laptop.  I really wish, again, that I had some technology skills. Those skills, along with automotive and home improvement skills would really come in handy! 

A friend of mine walked me through an option to restore my settings and everything was fine.  Until...last night while I was playing cards online, I was immediately attacked by virus after virus.  Granted, I might understand the attack if I actually used my laptop for more than email, instant messaging, Facebook and blogs!  Ironic thing, the only sites that would automatically load: and, two sites I have never even been to either site, yet alone heard of them!

This time, the infect prohibited me from getting online.  Fortunately, I was walked through the steps to restore in safe mode and after 24 hours, my laptop is back to normal!

One benefit of it all was that it forced me to go through all of my photos on my laptop that I would like to save on a disk to actually print off pictures.  Additionally, I actually turned on my desktop computer and went through 1.5 years of pictures on that drive as well!

Sometimes, I really love blessings in disguise!  Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend.  Other than helping JA move on Friday after work, I haven't left the house or changed out of my pajamas!  It's been a long time since I had a weekend like this and I'm reveling in it!  Afterall, the next week is going to be beyond busy.  Bring it on, I'm ready!
