I am finally back to my computer! We had a nasty virus invade our computer and embed itself in Windows so deep that the only way to remove it was to completely erase the hard drive.
My son is the local computer expert in our house - he is in his second year of his IT degree - so he took on the challenge. However, between his two jobs and school it proved to be a very lengthy process.
The Internet is a very wonderful and exciting place, but we must remember that we share the playground with some very unfriendly and devious people who are only on the playground to prey on unsuspecting victims - or in this case, computers!
