I know I haven't been posting much recently. A few weeks back, my computer downloaded the Thinkpoint virus, which masquerades as a Windows product. I've tried a multitude of methods to get the damn thing removed but it's still causing my computer to act up and I'm having one hell of a time trying to upload photos, use the internet, or make my computer sound less like it's going to take off and fly out a window. Yesterday, my computer decided to get stuck at 8:58am....all day. I also read somewhere that this particular virus will even disable McAfee, Norton and other anti-virus software. Talk about evil.
I'd like to wring the neck of the asshat (not a strong enough word but I don't want to scare anybody) that wrote the virus. So, I'm still working on a fix, but in the meantime I'm resigned to possibly having to reset my computer to factory settings. I hope you'll bear with me while I try to come up with the best plan of action! If anybody reading has tips or tricks on how to rid my computer of this plague, I'd love to hear suggestions.
