Some of you know that I spent last summer away from home - then returned to a non-working computer. FiL was kind enough to give me his computer since he had a brand new laptop and never used the desktop. It was basically identical to mine. Great.
The thing was full of viruses. Full of them. I did my best, and got it cleaned up pretty nicely. However, there was a major issue with the service packs and automatic updates. I kept ignoring and overriding the problem. Now the problem has become to big. My browser (all of them) decides on its own to continually open new windows (after window, after window...) whenever I click on links. Sometimes it doesn't happen for most of the day, sometimes it starts as soon as I boot up in the morning. The issue has worsened over the past couple weeks.
Keeping up with blogs has become nearly impossible. For each blog I visit I have to close tab after tab of browser openings, then again when I click on the comment link, and again to post a comment. It's taking about 10 minutes per blog. I started commenting on blogs this morning at 10:30 - I've gotten to 3 and it's after 11. :(
All this to say that I am going to have to take a bloggy break. Since I now work from home, using the internet, I have to have a decent computer. I have a friend whose hubby is going to come and do all my back ups and a complete system wipe and restore. He may get to it this weekend, maybe the following. Until then, I just don't have the kind of patience it takes to not drop the computer out of the window ;-)
Hopefully it won't take too long! Try to keep out of trouble while I'm gone!
