A story with a moral: When your virus protection software gives you a warning it is about to expire, don’t hesitate! I did and my hard drive is toast.
We were out of town at wonderful Harrison Hot Springs last week. I had my laptop with me and got the expiry notice. I asked it to remind me again in 24 hours, and then I forgot about it. In the short time between events, it appears a virus crept in and ate up my innards. I am hoping with every finger crossed that my wonderful computer guy can retrieve at least some of the data on the old drive. Luckily, I maintain m0st things on a removable drive but I had recently started saving some of the art works on c: for reasons that seem grossly inadequate right now. Thus, I haven’t been able to post for a few days. Now, from my office machine, I can at least make my plight public.
What value do these jerks get from damaging my machine, and costing me both money and inconvenience? Stupid ignorant jerks, is all they are.
