I’m back!

Posted: November 9, 2008 in Uncategorized

After two weeks of computer problems, I am finally back online and firing on all cylinders!

As you know, I got hit with a trojan horse virus that shut down my main computer. My laptop was also infected because it somehow snuch through the wireless connection and got there. Lucky for me I installed a new McAfee Virus Protection into the laptop because it didn’t take much to get it to recover. The problem was that the main computer needed 2 separate visits from the tech guy and I couldn’t connect the wireless until the main was fixed! Unfortunately, I lost everything stored on the main computer. Everything from downloaded programs to pictures, documents to songs, and any other custom enhancements we’ve made in the last 2 years. I backed up a few things on the laptop and disc but not everything.

Now that everything is fixed and the main is back to the original factory settings, I can get back online! I’ve been listening to plenty of music in the last couple of weeks so watch for new posts this week. One thing I’ve been trying to do is sort my lists for the end of the year: Top 30 Albums, Top 5 DVDs, Top 5 Worst Albums. That will all come in the last week of December.

It’s good to be back! Cheers!

    Welcome back Steve.

    I have McAfee installed on all of my systems. It is the only way to go.

    I finally invested in an external back up drive for my systems. You can get a terrabyte of backup for fairly cheap now. I hate to hear that you lost all of your stuff on your computer. I think I would die if that happened.

    Good to have you back!

    I’ve never had a virus destroy my computer, but I did have one almost literally blow up on me (only TWO YEARS after the purchase date!), so I definitely know how much it sucks to start from scratch on any computer.
