Virus and Thunder



The computer has a virus that I'm having a very bad time getting rid of. The radar map has a HUGE blob of yellow and red storms practically on top of us. I need to get off line to protect the router, and work on the virus some more. Hopefully I'll be able to bring you a real post before I go to bed, but if not... all is well, except the computer.

Grrr... viruses are a pain :-( Luckily I haven't been hit by one for a few years. Which one is it?

I guess you'll read this when all is well again. Good luck on the computer.

viruses just annoy me to no end. I keep a usb drive of virus cleaning programs because I'm constantly doing this when people call.

What a way to mess up a perfectly good weekend with a virus and a storm. Hope you get through both and have a little fun

Lots of wind and overnight rains here is all. Sorry about that 'puter bug. Hope you fix it soon.

John- I don't know that it has a name, but it attaches to svchost.exe and explorer.exe, and requires a root kit to kill it. But once you kill it, it also kills the registry files.

Everyone- Thanks for all the well-wishes about the virus. I really didn't expect so many kind words and moral support over this stupid "bug," but it's really nice to know you care!
