Yesterday, I was busy working away in the morning on my computer when a window popped up, saying that I had a virus on my computer and I needed to purchase this anti-virus software. I started using a new computer in January, and stupid me, didn’t even think of virus protection.
So the window popped up, I got worried, but didn’t have any time to deal with it, so I just shut down my computer. I got back on last night, thinking I would just purchase and download some antivirus software, and all would be well.
I was wrong.
Come to find out, the window that popped up saying I needed to purchase their antivirus software because my computer was infected? Well, that was a virus. And it made it so that I couldn’t open anything on my computer. These virus people are smart. They make you think you have a big, bad virus, so you enter your credit card info for their software, but all they are really after is your credit card number and personal information. Pretty sneaky.
Good thing I didn’t fall for it.
I’m not a techie person when it comes to computers, but I was finally (after a couple of hours) able to remove all of the virus. Good thing – the virus is gone. Bad thing – my computer is still messed up. I can’t open most of the programs and can’t figure out how to fix it.
So, I don’t have a recipe. Because I can’t get to it. And I can’t share with you my favorite links from last week. But I didn’t want to leave you hanging with the linkup.
So please still link up this week. I love to see everything you’ve been making. And cross your fingers that I’m able to get everything figured out so that I can post again tomorrow!!
The rules for the link up are simple:
1 – you can link up to any recipe
2 – link must be to a blog post – no etsy stores or advertisements
3 – please add a link in your post back to this post
4 – you can link up as many times as you want – go crazy!
