    It affected computers running XP Pro
    My nephew Caleb came over and was able to fix my business computer with some of his tricks.

    The problem I had on the 21st was the first problem I ever had.
    It's saved my bacon a bunch of times too.
    I love the rating I get on web sites, it let's me know whether they are safe or not before I click the link.
    I also use the parental controls to prevent bad things from popping up.
