This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

We Just Escaped From A Trojan Horse...

Back on line after husband inadvertently clicked on a hoax called System Tool Spy ware with Trojan Horse virus while on Fox Sports. It took over our computer and froze it completely.  Just got it fixed....thanks to the computer Guru with our Community Computer Club.

The virus scam gave a pop up screen announcing our computer was infected.  He clicked on it and it ran and infiltrated our computer and then announced we would have to pay $69.99 to remove all the viruses and infections.

We had a big family dinner for the ten of us, last night, with my husband's family...we leave for California on Friday....so am busy wrapping and preparing...

My son just had the same virus on his computer. Frustrating!
Have a good time and a Merry Christmas!

Luckily I'm married to a computer geek who knows about these things. The average human being might not! Glad you were able to get it fixed.

Have a safe trip to California, and a wonderful Christmas.
Eeek! How awful to get that Trojan Horse virus. I bet you really panicked for a minute! Glad it's all sorted out again now.
