It happened again, my computer got a horrible virus that resisted all of the tricks that I learned previously to remove it.
Then my son came for a week. My knight in shining armor! But, alas, it kicked his butt too!
So now, I am on a "loaner" computer. So all of the nifty pictures that I had for my blog, that were stored on my computer, are gone too. They might be salvageable, but I won't know for a very long time.
