Lovely Mawlware got on my computer last night. It disguised itself as some anitvirus bullcrap and it stops you from doing anything on your computer unless you “buy” their program. I couldn’t even get on the my internet browser. Lovely. I had Norton on my computer once upon a time ago but I shut it off, it sucked up sooooo much power from my computer. I have tried installing new stuff but you have to uninstall the Norton first. I could never seem to get it uninstalled.
I was so annoyed. It was bad enough I was already in a downer mood last night.
I called my cable company which then gave me a number for PlumChoice since they are 24 hours. I had to fork out $100 but I didn’t mind because they are based in the states and employ in the States. The guy I spoke with was so nice and awesome. He took care of everything for me on my computer and called me back an hour later as my computer re-booted. He removed Norton for me too.
I have now installed McAfee which is free to Cox Communications customers thank goodness. Hell, they charge enough for internet service, it better be free!
