My laptop is sick....

My laptop is sick. :(

Last night I was surfing the Internet and decided that I needed to look into updating my Anti-Virus software. Well, somehow in the process I got a pretty nasty virus called "Antivirus XP 2008". It immediately took over my computer and changed all my settings. I can still get on the Internet, but with a lot of pop ups.

On my way into work I stopped and bought Norton's Anti-Virus and brought my laptop to work to install since it takes hours to run a full scan. After Norton's was installed I could tell the virus was still there. Damn.

I called our IT department and about gave the guy a heart attack because he was thinking I had plugged in my laptop to our network. He was relieved to hear that it was not on our network. I guess when I get home and have access to the Internet I have to activate Norton's and then run a full scan and it should get rid of it. Let's hope so because I am so dependant upon my laptop. Ugh, I hate computer problems.

Even though I am really frustrated with my computer, just thinking about tomorrow somehow makes it not so bad. Even with computer virus', life is still pretty darn good right now.

Keep your fingers crossed that this virus gets cleared up tonight.
