**%#$%###& I've been hit!!!

I've been hit with a vicious malware called Live Security Platinum. It hit me Saturday night when I was looking up some embroidery stitch instructions. Actually I think that is pretty innocent so I don't know where in the world it came from..I can't get rid of it so today my desktop pc will be going to the "doctor".  It is so maddening since I just spent $120+ a couple of weeks ago on the desktop getting it cleaned up..It is amazing how dependent a person becomes on a machine, I feel like one of my appendages is missing. Kind of ridiculous really. Has anyone else been hit with this virus?? Malware?? I wonder how people get a kick out of doing these vicious things so innocent people have to put up with them? Very,very nasty!!!  Sew until next time, have a "virus" free day!!!

Sorry to hear it..I haven't heard of this one. I don't get why it is fun for people to start these viruses either. What antivirus protection do you have? I have Norton and haven't had any problems for years. I'm knocking on wood. lol

There is free malware detectors out there..I think mine is called Malware bites. I run my virus software AVIRA every day:)

How upsetting, I hope things are getting better for you. I had a scare last week myself but all is well after all.
