As I mentioned in my previous posts I've been having a lot of computer problems. I have many viruses and Trojan Horses so I've decided to buy a new computer. I spent several hours yesterday backing up all my stories, pics and videos onto travel drives; I was really surprised how much they hold. The last thing I wanted to do was save all my booked marked videos by downloading them out on cnet.com.
Part of the process to setup cnet.com is to downloading this PC Cleaner that finds all the issues you have on your hard drive. Well it took forever to run and when it finally stopped it said I had 1,296 issues... Which made me burst out laughing, I mean I knew it was bad but Oh My God... So it said that it would fix 49 of them for free and then it wanted me to pay big bucks to fix the other. So of course I closed out of that website, because why bother because I'm getting a new computer.
But part of the process is they downloaded an amazon.com toolbar, with cloud which I have no idea what that is. Anyways that toolbar has been driving me crazy all day and I just wanted my old toolbar back. I got so frustrated so I took a break and decided to order a birthday present for my sister Mary. She wanted some Kickboxing Turbo Jam Weighted Gloves, so the amazon toolbar actually came in handy... But after that I decided to delete that toolbar, thinking it would be easy to get my yahoo, or Mozilla toolbars back. I didn't really know which one I had, all I knew was all my bookmarks were gone...
Well something I installed to run the PC Cleaner now has blocked the ability to download my old toolbars... Pulling my hair out... I'm totally dumbfounded my this whole experience to say the least... But the good thing is my new Dell XPS15 (laptop) arrived today, along with my new wireless printer. The only thing I had to do today was run out and buy a router... So now a have all these boxes in my living room and it's like Christmas, it certainly cost more than Christmas... Ha, ha, ha... So tomorrow I'm going to breakdown my old computer and setup my new one, but the truth be told I'm a little nervous after my experience today... And then there's the fact that I'm totally addicted to being online and I hope it doesn't take me all day to figure how to set it up. Because I might go through withdrawal missing all of you...
