My Computer Is Dead

I am posting from the library. Virus backdoored last night took over entire operating system. Geek squad has it and $300 of my non-existant cash. Hoping they can fix. Won't be on others sites this week. Some posts are pre-scheduled and some awards are being giving. Hope to see you all soon. Please bear with me. :-)

The virus is called Antivirus XP 2008.

YES I had a firewall and antivirus software. Not sure how this happened. Be careful.

My husband had the vista version on his computer. Good luck. :(

I tried so long to get it off, but it changed the registry information, and I'm not that much of a computer geek. I had to wipe the whole system.

I don't really like geek squad, but I hope they do the trick for you.

Oh nooo!
I had my son last weekend fix my computer so it would run faster.
Ahhh so much better. Hope you're on line soon!

Hope you're back up and running quickly.

Damn, you're hard core going to the library to do a post! lol

Hey, you won't be around for a week. Damn, I'm feeling devilish now. Wonder if could do a post that would really tick you off ... knowing you couldn't comment! HA! I'm evil! lol

I see everyone else is saying nice things. Bad me. ;)

Seriously, I hope it doesn't cost that much! I'd be going crazy(er) if I couldn't log on every night!

Holy crap, Batman! That bites. I run Norton Security Suite on mine, plus Webroot Spysweeper. I (knock on wood) seldom have a problem.

I'm going to answer everyone on a later computer post.
