in case you don't know by now: i caught a zombie virus from my computer. i'm just not myself anymore. i've been spending hours upon hours fighting with my computer.
apparently, the virus / intruder was using AOL to access my other programmes. i tried HARD to uninstall AOL - and i actually did it! but the embedded virus keeps returning hundreds of AOL entries into my register and my security programmes - even putting them back into my firewall.
so all i can do is try to minimise it's access to the internet, and then cleanse my sec. programmes by uninstalling and reinstalling them. it doesn't feel like progress but i guess it is.
i am single minded about stuff like this, and i never give up... but this has been going on forever.
at least i'm online, etc.
but i'm really really tired - so now i have to sleep maybe - and then attack impeding real life doom.
so i shall check back in with yous guys later tonight. take care.
