No, not me. My computer. I've had computers since 1986. That's 25 years, with never a trojan horse or virus. Well, now I have the distinction of having my computer completely disabled and taken over by "XP Antivirus 2011". It took the better part of yesterday and last night ridding my laptop of it, because it renames and disables all the anti-virus and anti-malware programs on the computer, and disables the internet connection that might provide an anti-virus scan. I had to start with a system restore, which brought back my AVG, Windows Defender and Malwarbytes' Anti-Malware programs. Complete scans by all three turned up six infections, which were quickly dispatched to never-never land. I decided it was a good time to also perform a disk check/repair and a defrag. Of course, the disk check took practically forever. When it finished, it rebooted....right back into disk check. I shut it down, rebooted.....right back into disc check. I finally got it to give me the options to start Windows normally, Safe Mode, etc. I opted for safe mode, and it.......did nothing. I unplugged the cord and removed the battery, and let it sit idle for a bit. Plugged the power cord back in, turned it on, and got back to the start-up options again. I chose to start it using "Last Known Good Configuration". That got me back into Windows XP, but I've not shut it down and tried rebooting to see what happens. At least the virus is gone, and everything is running normally again.
Oh, guess how I picked up the virus/trojan horse/ whatever? I was Googling for "best broccoli varieties". Go figure :-O
Anyway, now I'm way behind in my blog reading and comments, so I apologize if I've missed answering anyone. I'll catch up....someday!
