Earlier, I wrote about changing email delivery systems for my blogs and how confusing it
gets to be a non-Geek operating in a Geek world.
Well, it’s gotten worse. I can’t say I’d rather be starving in Ireland like my ancestors did
in Shanty Gold, but I sure think life was simpler B.C. (before computers).
All I wanted was to talk to Verizon about loading a book from my computer onto my Nook. I googled Verizon and got what I thought was a Verizon site. WRONG!!!
The guy told me I had a nasty Trojan on my computer. I’m not talking Greek wars or
safe sex here. This Trojan was worse than a virus—would literally eat my data if I didn’t
get it off. BUT HE HAD A GUY WHO COULD GET RID OF IT FOR ME!!!
He transferred me to said “guy” who I’m sure was sitting somewhere in downtown Bombay. After more run arounds than happened in the NFL last year, I THINK it’s cleaned up. Chancer, my favorite computer geek, came
over and cleaned up my system.
“Do not pay them anything, Jeanne!” she ordered. So, I didn’t, but I’m terrified they’ll be back.
Please wish me the luck of the Irish on this one.
