This has not been a good day to be on the computer.
I spent part of the day finishing up the “sealing of the house” in preparation for tonight’s unusually cold temps. I had some chili and figured I’d sit and play. Easy right?
Noooooo…first I had issues earlier today with Yahoo…which I had issues with a few years back, I was hacked, but thought hey, I’ll make a new account, no problem. It started acting weird while I was in chat today, saying my contact was not a contact, and that they were not online. Well, we were chatting at the time. I signed out and in, and it seemed fine. However, after having Yahoo for just a couple of days, my computer is acting really slow.
I ran a scan through McAfee and noticed it says, “Scanning root kit”..it stayed on this item, scanning for some time. I looked it up on the internet and freaked out. I started thinking I had a root kit virus, which is serious! I spent a couple of hours scanning, cleaning etc. only to find out that it is a regular scan item on McAfee. Why doesn’t it say, “Scanning FOR root kit”, instead of the way it is worded..like I already have the virus? (The word you are looking for is…”Aaanywaay”)
Then I decided to try to add a contact to my Skype, through the Windows 8 app which I always use for Skype. Well, I couldn’t find my main control panel for Skype no matter what I clicked on! Where is the little window? WTH…so I uninstalled Skype, went to their site, downloaded again…same issue. I give up. Whatever.
I am taking my meds, and going back to playing solitaire. Life goes on.
