Viruses and Other Stupid Computer Problems

It seems my computer virus problems aren't going away anytime soon. [insert chosen curse word here]

I knew I'd have to wipe my computer eventually but I've been putting it off. Why? Do you know how many photos I have on here? I'm a prolific photographer and I've already taken everything up until last year off. [sigh]

So it seems I have to do this fairly quickly if I ever want to use my computer again.

The virus I have corrupted my old email. I started a new one. Now it seems to have hit my blog. This is the second time it's posted random posts without my permission.

May have to post from hubby's computer for awhile. If you don't hear from me for a time, you'll know why. And if more of that crap pops up on my blog, stay away from it and don't worry, I'll get to it quickly enough. Meanwhile I'll be sulking over my stupid laptop with it's maxed out hard drive and a virus my anti-virus can't seem to get rid off.

Time to bring in the professionals!

P.S. To the individuals with no morals and obviously too much time on their hands, who think it's great fun to mess around planting viruses, scr*w you! I'd say more, but I'm worried that I might go on a tirade and that simply isn't good for this preggo's blood pressure.

I don't want to be the bearer of bad news, but I got an email from you today with the same link that was posted here earlier.

I hope you're able to get your computer fixed soon.

Damn that sucks! Good luck with all the photo recovery.

sorry you're having issues with your computer...a sledge hammer usually works pretty well.

if you'd like a less dramatic choice i suggest transferring all your pics and documents and such to an external drive. we had a similar problem with our old computer and backed up all our valuables onto an external and love having convenience of extra memory now.

then again, the sledge hammer option would be fun! ;) hope you get it fixed soon!

This computer geek (me) may be able to help you with a few things if you want. Send me an email from your husband's computer (ifoptimist at gmail) and I can give you my phone number. I have a few tricks up my sleeve that may allow you to just boot up in safe mode and run antivirus and spy/malware scans. In the meantime, get an external hard drive to start backing up your photos. :-) -Traci

HA HA HA! Why oh why did you delete the previous post? Why the hell do I only get to follow a link to a Trojan's footsteps?

You better post the link again!

Always keep a back up of your important files....hope there is a CD or online place from where you could recover...

Trying desperately to catch up in blogland. I love your belly picture below! I cannot believe how quickly this pregnancy seems to have gone. You will have a baby so soon!
