All the old things that used to happen with Windows 98 that made having a computer not so much fun....I remember the blue screen of death and the strange error messages......but that shouldn't happen any more.. Number of reasons for it and most of the time those techs can look at it and say..it is this and you go "for Pete's sake"......lol

I have said this before but Del and I don't spend a lot of money going places or eat out at fancy place even if there were any around we wouldn't go to them anyway....or go to shows....none of those either so we don't feel bad about buying something like for me would be Carbonite....online backup to go with my Segate machine sitting on my desk......he gets things like $5 fishing lures......and then feeds them to the river....lol.....my money is better spent not according to him though......

I just feel safer with the online backup in place....I still need to get more pictures scanned.....after a few hundred it gets kind of old but I have to get it done..

I also have a program called Malwarebytes that I run every week or so just in case.....my antivirus runs all the time....

Hope you get your computer back real soon and it was just a glitch.....and nothing really bad......

Thanks, Janet.
Just got a call from the repairman and he said my computer had multiple viruses! Yuk! He said he could get it cleaned up by tomorrow, so that's the good news.

You were wise to just take it to local techs.
