Not much internet activity out of me for now. I'm fighting another virus and going away for the weekend, so things will be quiet here at Skye Puppy.
When I spotted the virus (it looked like adware), I told McAfee Anti-Virus to update itself, then I put the computer in Lockdown mode (no access to the internet coming or going) and ran a full scan. It found nothing out of the ordinary.
Later Friday night, I unlocked the internet just to check my email before bed, and McAfee popped up to tell me it found something potentially harmful, so I suggested very strongly that McAfee remove the darn thing. Then I put the computer back into Lockdown for the weekend.
This morning I unlocked my computer again, and I've been hesitantly leaving it unlocked, hoping that McAfee does a better job protecting my computer than when I'm bossing him around and nagging him to scan. So far nothing unwanted has appeared. By tomorrow, I might just start breathing again...
