DON'T TELL, DON'T ASK



While I was back in the States…
An invader snuck into my home…
And took up residence…
In my computer.
Specifically—ASK. Com.
It didn’t tell me, nor did it ask me…
If it could come into my computer…
It just did it.
How did this happen?
And why?
My computer was off…
And unplugged.
When did this software, that I hate…
Sneak in?
Obviously when I booted up again, right?
I’ve since done an uninstall operation.
Nope, still there.
I’ve done all the other ideas I found on the Internet.
Nope, still  there.
Anyone else have an unwanted invader in your computer…
Called Ask.com?
Did you get rid of it?
Please tell me how.
And call me shameless...
But it's my birthday today...
And I'm a sucker for sentiments.

Always, Em-Musing

Happy birthday, Leigh!
When all else fails, wipe clean and reinstall. Yes, it's a pain.

WoW on the ask.com thing I haven't heard of that one. :/ I use Norton and once while I slept they did a big update and because I wasn't there when it was finished they set my computer in Muppet Mode and set parental locks on everything. In case you are wondering with parental blocks you can't see blogs. It took almost an entire day and with Norton's help I was able to correct it. But if your computer was intruded upon, I will never understand why ppl get a kick outta messing with others computers :( Hope you can resolve this soon!

Those sneaky Askers!!Glad to know this can happen. I often log on to things I wish I didn't and then things like this happen, but it sounds like you are an innocent victim!

Happy Birthday!

Sorry about your problem. I'll ask (.com) my brother if he can help. He's a whizz at this kind of thing, while I am not at all.

Have a super happy day!

And bummer about the ask.com. I've never had something like that occur.
