A Nasty Bug!
I woke up one Monday morning just as dawn was breaking out over the trees. I sluggishly walked downstairs and prepared my favorite cup of Joe (that's joe in a cup on right). The house was quiet, all my little angels happily in their beds, even hubby was sound asleep quietly captivated by whatever dream he was deep inside of. I turned on Misty (my laptop's name) and the pretty blue world of Windows was smiling proudly at me, asking me to type in
my security name so we could get busy for the day and then my life was horribly infected! The screen was not my beautiful sand dunes and sunrise it was black, dark, threatening, mean, it murdered my icons and allowed a nasty bug called Security Tools to strip Misty down and take all she had, whhhhyyyyy Misty noooooo????
I felt creepy, violated, beaten, there was this big square block screaming at me with somekind of banging chime like sound, yelling and constantly telling me, "Warning, Danger!" I thought Will Robinson and robot were going to come smashing into my bedroom and slap me! I fought back tears why was this happening to me, don't those cyber nut freaks know that I need to write! What was I to do, I loaded up Misty, took her to Dr. Geeksquad and he told me in a happy grinch like way, "We can fix that for you for only $200.00, would you like us to get that started today?" Still devilishly smiling at me, his chubby sausage like fingers wrapped around my Misty, I said know and snatched her quickly from his club like hands.
Then I took control of myself, being the Wonder Woman I dream of being I called my security system Webroot, and asked them how is this possible that I have this climitius type bug on my Laptop? I said, "Aren't you suppose to keep this from happening?" The woman on the line (that I envision sitting somewhere in her Kitchen) says to me, "Ma'am we are hiring new people to figure these bugs out and we are just so short staffed..." I blinked and digested and breathed I said, "Well why don't you guys sell your product for half since your so short staffed?" She gave me the obligatory customer service laugh, waited a minute and then said, "For 99.00 we can fix your problem or we can send you a link and you can fix it yourself for free just follow the prompts, what would you like to do?" See right here, I'm going to give God credit, because of him I have patience and my mind was free of the many curse words that I would have said not less then 10 years ago:) All I said was, "Send me the information and I will figure it out on my own for free!"
How is your computer doing? Any bugs lately?
