How many Hubbers have had a virus on your computer?
I found out this weekend what getting a virus means. After a decade on the net, I finally got a worm that was going to take my credit card info and give it to and unknown site. This didn't happen of course because it didn't get through my firewall. I had to cancel my credit card and buy a new computer because it froze my opperating system. I would have cost $174.00 to clean off all my files on my computer to fix it or buy a new one at $356.00. Yes it was on sale lucky me or was I? I clicked on ... You have a package from Fedex. So do not click on anything that you are not familiar with.
Here lately, I have had my computer hacked into, it appears, and so my husband has had to install new firewalls and everything. It all started a couple of weeks ago when HP had that big power outage, and right after that my computer has not been acting right since then. The viruses did not get through my firewall that I know of according to my husband. I had commented on one day and in lieu of placing the symbol for smile, I just wrote smile, and the next day when I turned on my computer, the page for the Internet with a site typed in with that symbol was staring me in the face? I did not know what to think, other than someone had gotten into my computer again. Or it is just some type of fluke?
Ooh so darling your new grandson is. What a great picture. I have not had trouble before but I needed a new computer so this was a n excuse to get one but I don't want to go through that again. I don't have knowledge to do firewalls and stuff and wou
Thank you so much, Suzzy! Glad all of this was straightened out long ago! Enjoy your weekend.
