I won't be online much til I get it fixed.
I clicked on a free movie of Miracle on 34th Street last night, but I must have been out of it because I wasn't cautious like I usually am; I clicked indiscriminately and I failed to use a source I was familiar with - it wasn't hulu, it wasn't fancast, etc. We live and we learn. Betcha I'll never do that again.
The trojan doesn't let me use the internet. Except for phishing purposes. No thank you.
I guess they're thinking & hoping if you're stupid enough to click on an unknown site, you're stupid enough to give up your banking info (to buy their faux virus protection pkg, to buy porn, etc.)
It auto-loaded 3 different porn sites and a viagra site; one of them asked me if I wanted to see Hot Gay Men. Or girls. Ummm, gee, let me think about this for a nonsecond. NO.
Not my normal Christmas experience, let me tell you.
So far I keep running Spybot and it keeps finding and fixing it, but the trojan still hijacks it from another buried location upon restart, and so far Spybot is not removing the stealth trojan location. Even tho I keep trying. On restart the faux AntiMalware window pops back up. I love computers but I'm not a computer nerd. So if any of you have free fixes PLEASE SparkMail them to me and send me the link!!!!!!!! I hope this doesn't cost me big bucks because I can't afford it.
So I am writing this from a friend's house I drove an hour to get to (can't do that every day).
So I won't be on the internet, nor email, nor SP, until it gets fixed. There's an hour limit of internet time at the library. When it's open. Sigh.
So Merry Christmas but I won't be visiting your pages much - and I wasn't able to leave ANY of the Christmas Greetings last night and today that I had planned on giving to my SparkFriends.
New team members: sorry and I sure hope you understand. I'll get to you asap.
On a positive note, had a lovely candlelight service at church last night. The devil tried to besmirch Christmas but I'm in the world, not of it, and I am overcoming evil with good.
