    Thank you! I don’t have kind thoughts toward people who infect my computer, lol. I’m very careful, too. I use Firefox instead of IE because my computer tech cousin recommends it. Plus I use Avast (at his recommendation) because it has a ‘bar’ system. Green bars mean the site is safe, yellow bars mean it’s NOT, and gray means a site hasn’t been rated yet. I also use Superantispyware and Malwarebytes, so I don’t often have a problem. This came about because I clicked on a Twitter link for a blog. At least I’m 99% sure that’s where it came from. That’s when the problems started anyway.

    Personally, I think coffee AND cussing can be a great way to relieve stress when computer problems crop up. I do try not to swear (unsuccessfully most of the time), but this is one of those times where it actually feels good. 🙂

    Hope you solve your IE problems. But I would recommend Firefox and Avast. I love the bar rating system. 🙂

    I agree with Natalie – awesome wish! I have been getting a lot of links sent directly to me lately from people I don’t even know. I won’t touch them. It’s a dangerous world out there. But I do have a pretty awesome anti-virus and anti-malware protection program in place having been down that road too many times in the past.

    I am having an Internet Explorer issue right now since WordPress made their changes. I’m all a mess. We can cry in our coffee together. Or cuss at it. I’m good either way. 😀

    I like the poison ivy idea, too. Serve them right. I wouldn’t really ‘hurt’ them, but it might drive them as crazy as this Trojan drove me!

    And thanks. Talked with my computer guy this afternoon and will hopefully have it dealt with before the week is over. I can hardly wait. The one I’m using now is better than nothing but that’s about all I can say for it. 🙂

    Poison ivy–YES.

    Sympathy to you in your computer trials and tribulations, Kristy!

    Thanks, Natalie! I’m pretty creative when it comes to bad wishes for bad people. LOL…I’ll have a character in a book someday who will drown in a septic tank, which is the first thing that came to mind when my youngest daughter’s first boyfriend broke up with her about six weeks ago. Can’t drown him, so I’ll base a character on him. 🙂

    O.M.G. I LOVE your wish to the virus creators. I am totally going to use that…wahahahaha!! Priceless…
    Viruses suck! Here’s hoping yours gets a nice overhaul and repair and is home safe, sound, and good as new soon enough.
    Get better soon Kristy’s computer! 🙂

      It does, Karen! I was so annoyed when I realized what had happened. Grr! LOL…I used to be pretty good about getting rid of viruses, but I guess they’re getting more sophisticated. This thing just snowballed to something, and eventually I couldn’t even get online. So I’m having the hard drive wiped and Windows reinstalled. Oh goody. 🙂

      I’m glad you’re enjoying the book. I always worry because I keep my stuff G-rated. And not everyone likes that. But it was a decision I made when I realized if my work was ever published, my dad would read it, lol.
