Keep it clean

Ok. I have always prided myself on keeping a clean computer. I have always bought the BEST (at the time) computers, softwares, and virus control/adware control. Hmmm. Well, I was working on my Spanish this morning and a friend of mine Brad came in. We were chatting and I was fussing about the connection at the college as far as wireless went... being S L O W. Well Brad is like really super smart and he works at a tech support center. He was chattin away with me and fooling around with my computer, :I am just doing a little maintenance for ya: me :ok: and then he downloads this program from called ad-ware 2008.

It found 94 infections.

And it was free. SO, go check it out~ lol~ WOW. and it is not like I go to porn sites or anything, I have no idea how all that crap got there. SIGH. But I do know that qvc is guilty of some because the campus internet blocks that web site due to spyware.

The other download we did was for AVAST home edition. That is a free virus thing. Brad said that was the best one out there right now. It is free to try for up to like 27 virus removals then you have to buy it. And the cool thing about that is that it runs all of the time and will catch the viruses that are attaching to computers on "boot up" process. So, there is some free advise from my really cool smart friend.

We had a blast at out luncheon today. 8 women, how could it not be fun? LOL. And our waiter "Tony" was just a peach. He was looking over my cheat sheet and telling me different words for different things or stuff like in Mexico we use .... and not what is there ... or there are two words for mushrooms (YUCK) and I asked him what the name was for Bisque. Suprisingly he knew one ( I wrote it down) and he said that they made a seafood bisque back in Mexico that would make New England Bisque look sad. He said he would see if he could find his grandma's receipe and then pass it on to me next time I come over (which will be next week at the rate I am going).

I made rice crispie treats for the day care for tomorrow and then made fudge for us here at the house. Ummm hmmm. Fat girl made her sum fudge! Oh hell why not? I never make the stuff and even more rare do I get a chance to find some already made up (that taste good) ... sooooo I made my Aunt some fudge and that was my excuse. Then I had to try it. So, I told her, "Gee Sue, I don't know what I did wrong but this fudge turned out horrible, don't eat it."

But I guess saying that as you lick the goopy (it was still warm) sloppy fudge off of your fingers... welll is not convincing. Sigh. I guess I have to share.

Mmmmmmm Fudge!! Haven't had that in a long time! You got the tracking # for me right? So I know when it will arrive? ..smiling..
I've got a virus on mine, but according to directions for removal, I have to go into "safe Mode" and I'm not comfortable doing that...Grrrr
Are you already for taking the girls around the neighborhood tomorrow?

as far as safe mode goes, that is what the one big virus out there is doing. You have to have a virus check running that will pick it up before the booting process because the virus is attached to the boot. :) u prolly have to go to safemode for your virus thing to work. Call wild blue s tech support line and they will walk you throu it

The only reason I know about Ad Aware is because the Finance Officer here at work had us all download it. And Spyblaster and Malware. But I forget to run it all the time. ;)
