Computer Virus, Spyware & Malware

This week I had a really bad computer scare! My system was infected with Spyware Protect 2009. It happened the day that DH left for Florida. So I had to deal with it myself. DH told me what I needed to do while waiting for his flight. So with the help of Spybot Search & Destroy and Ad-Aware, I managed to remove it from my computer.

I've always known NOT to click on any unknown pop-ups. But Spyware Protect 2009 looks very legit. Regardless to say, I learned my lesson the hard way. I'm just glad my computer is working now and it is virus free at the moment.

I hate when that happens ... I usually don't know what to do and have to call my son in law or Stacy's husband...glad it's up and running okay.
