This POS computer has a virus or a Trojan program in it.
I know this without a doubt.
Unfortunately, neither my Firewall, my Anti virus program nor my Spyware program either noticed or can actually find it. Needless to say I am pissed off about this whole deal.
They have been banished back into the ether in a burst of electrons.
I have installed a new Antivirus program but it is kicking my ass trying to figure out how it works.
I just now got back here after fucking around with it for hours!
It says it wants to take about 24 hours for a system scan. I think this old laptop has been outclassed., it just doesn't have the Horsepower it needs to run this program.
Anyway, just a heads up.
There is a major cold snap headed this way, possibly overnight, down into the mid to low teens and it has been raining all day.
That will turn this whole area into a skating rink.
I am set pretty damn well to sit it out, I am going to run over a couple of blocks and get some candles and cheap lighting just in case.
Everything else is covered, I hope.
I will continue my quest for the offending code later.
It kills my processor to less than dial up speed and I had to pause the twelve hour scan just to post this but at less than 10% of the scan being completed, this new program found six damn Trojan data mining programs the old Anti Virus AND the Spyware programs I had couldn't find even though they were up to date.
Miserable sonofabitches anyway.
The assholes who design and send out this spyware shit and viruses should have their balls clapped together between two 2X4's.
