Bless My Son-in-Law...

You will never believe how many viruses were on this computer..I ran the scan and nothing came up. Well, my son-in-law, a computer engineer...downloaded a free virus scanner and Lord have Mercy...over 20 viruses were there..No wonder the computer was out in space.
I couldn't do a thing and was ready to put the disc in and clean the computer right out and take everything off, even if I lost some of my things.
The free virus scanner is called ClamWin..It is a free download and wonderful.
Sharing this with all of you, just in case you want to try it.
Now, I will start back blogging and later tell you about the Craft Show this weekend. Have to get some pictures up.

Till next time, keep looking up.

Glad you got your computer straightened out. I realized a couple of weeks ago that I'd forgotten to run the virus scan on my computer at work for probably a year, and when I did there were 85 of those bad boys. It runs much faster now. :-)

So happy to hear you had a good show! Beautiful photos - I was in Maine once during the fall. All I remember is that the ferocious winds. My hair is blowing crazily in all the pictures. LOL
