ATTACK MODE

Hi…
I’m back from the States…
And all I can say is…
AAHHHHHHHHH!!!!
Invaders struck!
Oh, not my home…
My files on my computer!
And unlike a couple of weeks ago…
The files are not in Dropbox this time.
Yesterday…
I noticed my computer was acting funny.
And so I had Microsoft Security Essentials check…
AAHHHHHHHHH!!!!
A Trojan attack!!!
Seven of them to be exact.
I then removed them…
And cleaned up all the malware that invades daily.
Everything seemed to be fine until this morning…
I opened up the file that my blog posts are in and…
AAHHHHHHHHH!!!!
Of course I searched,
Nada!
I think the time has for ME to go into attack mode...
I'm going to invest in an Apple computer.
I’ll use this Windows PC for writing only
And the Apple for researching the Internet…
And social media.
Whatever the cost of a new computer…
Is definitely worth preventing…
The agony of losing files of my writings.
What about you?
Been attacked lately?
Ever?
And BTW…
I was on Facebook when the Trojans attacked…
So be warned.

Always, Em-Musing

I'm sorry! Another reason I avoid Facebook.
Get an iPad. Nothing can attack you then.

I've only downloaded a virus once. (And now I never open unknown emails.) However I pick up malware all the time. We just do a monthly search and destroy for them.

Argh! So sorry. I have a PC but seem to have a wonderful antivirus/malware/spyware program. I've used Kasperspky ever since...ever, and it's awesome.

This is the second time since Friday that someone mentioned losing files to me so I guess I better get my stuff into Dropbox as well. Thanks for the reminder. I hope it all works out.

Facebook. Why am I not surprised. I dropped them a few years ago and have never looked back. It seems like a good way to keep up with friends and family until...someone gets hurt.

I got Webroot from Best Buy and have been happy with it. I tried Norton and a few other anti-virus software programs, but they didn't stop the attacks. I lost one PC to a Trojan and nearly lost this laptop. Webroot sits outside your computer and protects it from the outside.

I've lost files before due to trojans. Its terrible to think that somebody has so much time, and intelligence, to think up something so traumatizing to people.

I feel for you EM

Ack! No fun at all. My computer died a few weeks ago, but it was not from attacks. All the same, my new one is well protected with all I know to do. I hope it's enough.

Oh my word I'm sorry! Did you lose anything except the blog posts?
