My PC is Sick!

A sunset from the beginning of April.  I had neglected to post this, but had it queued up.  I may not be posting for a bit.  I have a virus on my computer and need to get it removed by someone who knows what they're doing.  Obviously I do not.  Until then, I can use HWNSNBP's computer but cannot upload any photos.  I may be able to get my challenges posted from (shhh) work (shhh) on Monday or Tuesday, but I'm not counting on it.  I'll be trying to visit my blogging friends when I can during my breaks, and you can always reach me by e-mail which will forward to my Blackberry. 

The virus is called Windows Recovery Virus and I don't know how I contracted it.  I was looking at Splitcoast this morning and clicked on the Spellbinders ad and I started getting messages that my computer was At Risk.  My virus software kept telling me it had gotten rid of a Trojan, but then this screen popped up that said I needed to run a Windows Recovery process.  Thankfully, I did not click on the link to upgrade and give them any money or credit card information to do that.  The grammar was faulty and I didn't trust it.  I was able to check it out through HWNSNBP's computer, and there are instructions of how to get rid of it, but I do not want to screw things up further, so I will be looking for a PC doctor on Monday. 

Wish me luck!


  1. oh good luck! I had a virus a few years ago and lost everything! Now I am really really really really really careful....but always really worried!

  2. Don't you hate it when you cannot use your own computer til it gets fixed. Makes you realize how much you use it. It did me. I feel your pain Lorraine. Hee. That sunset is amaaaaaaaaazing. Love the shape of the clouds. Wow.
