My computer has been on it's last leg for quite a while now. It started when I discovered I could no longer burn CD's. Then when I got my new Norton, the automatic updates stopped after a couple of months even though I had it set to do that. And every now and again it would freeze up in the middle of something, most often when I would be at 2 peas trying to post to the blog thread.
Well, I can say that I have now killed it. Some how I have been infected with some type of spyware during one of those screen freeze episodes three days ago. My Norton and adware programs are disabled. We discovered that when my dh tried to debug it with no luck.
I like to check on my computer everyday to see what still works, as if by some hope everything will be alright. I no longer have internet access and I can't get into my photo editing program. The only thing that makes me not want to pull my hair out about that is that most of those photos are of my scrapping and cards. I still shoot film for the majority of our photos so they are safe. I was more worried about losing my music downloads. Thankfully, I was smart enough to back them up onto a memory stick.
So for now I am on dh's computer. It is very nice to be able to use the computer without everything jamming up and having things pop up super quick. A girl could get use to this! I'll try to check in when I can.
