Computer update

I am still missing my baby. :(
My friend came and picked it up, and emailed me last night with what he found. The power supply WAS INDEED bad! He replaced that and said that it had been up and running all day. He did find several spyware thingies lurking, which I knew about because when I discovered them and tried to open the Spyware Doctor to remove them, the computer froze up and I had to shut it down. (That was when it wouldn't come back on the next day)

He removed the spyware and said it was working 100% better already. He said that he was going to install a virus program that he has used for years and see if anythign else needed cleaning up.

Then he sent another interesting note that simply said.... "Wait til I tell you about the program he wanted to charge you $150 for".


Stay tuned for updates......I will let you know what he found when I know. :)

That free coupon was just to get you in. Most Computer geeks at those place believe the rest of know nothing about computers. We may not know how to fix them and other things but we damn sure know when the the computer geek guy is trying to screw us in the rear. That's cool that you know somebody who can work on them for you.

Glad you got someone else to look at your "baby". The other guy was really giving you a hard time. I hope it works better than ever when you get it back. I sure miss you pics and updating on your blogs.

Love ya!
