Sunday night I came home to discover my computer has a virus. Joy. How I managed to get a virus when I wasn't even home I'm not sure. Let's just say my desktop has loose morals and was stepping out Saturday night. Slut. So for about 3 hours yesterday morning I tried to get rid of this thing. I'll be the first to admit that outside of basic Internet and word processing, I'm computer illiterate. So I contacted Norton for some help....to which they were more than glad to offer....for a price tag of 139.99! Seriously??? So I pay a yearly premium for your service and it when it fails to do what it's supposed to, I have to pay more to fix it. Well that's a sham on the American public if I've ever heard one. I ended up going with the lesser fix it plan for a mere 99.99. Gee. What a bargain. They sign on remotely to your computer and then you sit there and watch someone you can't even see move your mouse and open programs. It was kinda freaky. But now I'm back.....disease free! Woo hoo!!
Note to anyone out there. Personal Anitvirus is NOT an actual virus program, it's spyware. Do not download it or you will be forced to watch Arif from Norton play with your computer for hours then hand you a stiff bill.
