DOA

That’s what my computer was when I arrived back in Atlanta last night. I opened up my laptop, signed into my email and then got no less than 10,000 pop-up bubbles saying ‘your computer is being infected.’ Awesome. This being my 4th, yes that’s right – FOURTH computer virus in under two years, I’m stealthy now to the bubbles that say “Fix here to resolve this issue.” If you’re not a computer virus oldie like me – you NEVER click on those. That was a lesson learned the hard way. (On a side note: I feel like computer viruses have a dirty connotation no? People automatically think you were on questionable Websites. I can assure you the most dangerous Website I visit is the weather channel.)


I don’t want to complain first thing on a Monday but seriously
WWWWWWWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY??


Needless to say I will be MIA from the blogosphere for a few days while my computer takes a visit to the tech hospital.

Happy Monday Friends.

Oh NOOOO!!! Did you get the blue screen of death?! or if you have a Mac, did you get the Sad Mac face!? (sex and city reference, what what?)

Sorry about your computer virus :( I hate those. I go to Kurt at least once a week for a computer issue/problem because he is an IT tech nerd. I wish I was better at computers. And yeah I hate when I get viruses and people are always like 'oooooo what were YOUUU looking at?' hahha

xoxox see you soon love! Good luck!

YUCK! Sorry lady. :(

That sucks, I went through 4 lap tops in college. I feel your pain. You really need a MAC, I've never had another virus in the last 5 years. I know how much it sucks though, so hugs. Happy Monday!

i'm sorry, friend! that always happened to me too. but i got a MAC and it's been 4 years, virus-free. i know they're expensive, but they're TOTALLY worth it. promise. hope your day gets better! : )

Oh NOOOO! That is awful! I'm so sorry...you should look into getting a Mac (if you don't already!). They so rarely get viruses. I hope it all works out quickly. :(

Rissy said...

oh no!!!! first I feel bad for you!

then I feel bad for me because I'll miss you.

Do you have a MAC? because people love to brag to me about how MACs don't get viruses that easily, but I don't want to get cocky.

come back soon!

Sarah Kelly said...

Sad day :( I've had a few viruses in the past couple years, also. the worst pop ups are the ones that get you even though you're just trying to X out of them!

Tatiana said...

That sucks!!!! When I was in college, that used to happen to me all the freaking time on my PC. I've had my mac for 4 yrs and it has never had any viruses. So worth the extra cash to buy it!
I hope your computer has a fast recovery and that you'll be back soon :-)

Megan said...
