Invaded....


That it was this easy...This morning I crawled out of my cozy spot under my down comforter (bartered for that sweet thing!),I wandered out and fired up my computer. Within ten minutes I was in panic mode as spyware had invaded my computer and completely locked everything up. I couldn't get onto the Internet or run my security to rid myself of it. It shut down my Internet....no help there...Ackkkkkkk.

Three hours and several trips around through the back door of my system..it was kind of like falling down Alice's rabbit hole.

I managed to find the little sucker and rout him out of his trench..long enough to run my Windows Defender put the nasty little thing in quarantine. Then I rangled up a Stinger online and flushed out the rest of those nasty little spywares...all 12 of them!!!!!

I think tonight I am finally breathing again...I do not like my Mondays to start like this!! Have a computer safe evening all:) Hugs, Sarah

I ain't worth a short crap in hunting down spyware....I'm a lot better at keeping it out.

Yikkessss, you make the second one I've seen with this, I'm scared. I hate them little bugers, I just had a chill run up the back of my neck, ewwwww. So glad you could fix it yourself!! Sure hope Tuesday morning is much better for you!!

Yikes!! You are very adept at knowing how to manage such invasions - I would have had to call for help. Bravo!

At least you knew what to do and got right on it and found the culprit and it didn't defeat you. Good for you.

Good to hear you got that sorted Sarah. It can be a nightmare to get rid of sometimes.
