November 19, 2012 |

Have you ever had the displeasure of having your computer infected with a virus? I have, and it is not a fun experience. Here is what happened to me.

I grabbed my morning cup of coffee and turned on my computer just like I do every single morning. I took my first sip of my morning coffee and waited for my computer to spring to life. That first sip of morning coffee is always the best. One big whiff of that wonderful aroma and I was ready to face my computer, but the computer screen looked a little different this morning. Instead of the usual welcome screen, I was greeted with a big blue error screen. I took another sip of my coffee, and powered off my computer. I turned it back on and waited for it to boot up.
