I spent the better part of the afternoon dealing with computer issues *sigh*. I have a laptop that I absolutely love! It has lots of memory and it's fast... even though I have hundreds upon hundreds of photos loaded on here, it is still very fast. (Yes, I know, I need to get an external hard drive... someday!) When we bought this computer we bought it with graphics and photos in mind which takes up quite a bit of space.
This morning, I tried a new game on Facebook that is a lot of fun, Gardens of Time, but you can only play so long and then you need more gold! I saw an ad for obtaining more gold so I clicked on it. Wrong move! I spent the next half hour trying to get out of that ad. I finally managed and all seemed OK so I went about my chores. This afternoon, though, it started acting like a computer from the dark ages... taking forever to boot up or open up an application. Now, I don't know a whole lot about computers but I know when something's not right. And I know enough to probably just get me into trouble but, I managed to download a MalWare program (since mine didn't catch it) and it found the culprit. Mind you, this took HOURS to do because my computer was running that slow. *another sigh* It is running fine this evening so hopefully, all is well.
Moral of the story, don't click on anything unless you're 100% sure of the website!
Till next time,
