Computer woes

I was all set to post more about graduation day and our celebratory dinner last night when some strange things started popping up on my computer — some fake spyware thing added several files. I ran the virus scan and it dealt with several of them, but something is still wrong — my computer now crashes in anything but safe mode. 😦

My computet wiz son worked on it til the wee hours this morning and is now backing up files and reinstalling windows — hopefully that will work! meanwhile I am using my husband’s antique old computer, but I don’t have access to my pictures from here.

I’m so glad Jeremy’s here and knows what to do! Hope to be back in action soon!

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about your computer problems. Funny my mom is having the same problem and trying to help her over the phone is very hard. She doesn’t have the patience to do that sort of thing so hopefully my sister will be able to help her.

    Can’t wait to see the photos… 🙂

  2. UGH! I am tellin’ ya … cameras and computers – the bane of our existence! I hope your puter is all better real soon! (yes! Fortunate it happened while Jeremy was home!)

  3. oh dear.. my thoughts are with you! i know how dreadful that situation can be… we get so dependent on our computers, then when something goes wrong, one is completely at a loss. i wish i knew more about the silly things so i could fix mine myself!

  4. I hope you’re up and running soon! I had to fish you out of my spam queque this morning because my computer didn’t recognize your new url.

  5. I hope Jeremy is able to get your computer back in order SOON, Barbara! I just loathe computer problems! Thankfully, I seldom have them but when I HAVE had them, it has been stressful, to say the least!
