    Spoke too soon. My laptop has problems now. I'll have to bring it somewhere to get it fixed. I hope it wasn't from clicking on the link.

    Well, if that is the case, then, this laptop should be acting up, and, that was also, on a major site. I will take it off. I can't win for losing.

    ...these are still the same links to check your computer as I posted and did without a problem. Maybe something else is wrong with your computer.

    Yeah. Something else is wrong. I tried the link with Sue's laptop, and her's is fine. It's what I'm posting this with.
    I picked up some new anti-virus for my laptop and will try installing it again today.

    Guess I missed this Post.

    Clicking on the check link is what has many computers broke.

    All mine are fine because I did not fall for the BS.

    It was all a scam.

    I got the inns in the computer world, and then some, honestly, nothing wrong with the link I provided it was given to me from a reliable source and was also, on major networks; but, mostly, I put my mouth and money where my reliable source is and where he works. I tested it, nothing wrong with this computer. Nothing wrong with the link I provided.

    It just seems weird how the Gov would setup a Site and tell you to go there Because you have Malware. Give me a Break.

    I think they got your Cookies and other Information, including copyrighted Software and music list for their reading pleasure.

    I know of no one that was infected, or got shut down that day.

    A good example of how people jump, just because it was on the news.

    Well, if they got my information they got to be bored! LOL. I don't listen to music via the computer, only in the car, I visit only Terry's and my Cancer site, and for added fun, I sometimes, visit the other Cancer sites, ha ha ha ha ha. They got to be thinking, WOW! GET a life girl! Oh, wait I do like to visit the site, Purina, having to do with my favorite animals, cats. I like cats. They can have all the info they want. lol.

    Ps. I don't jump well in stilettos. Berry berry dangerous.

    I like your new pet Avatar. Is that a real picture ?

    If that is your place then lucky You.


    I think the whole Malware thing was more to track people that go to less than desirable websites.

    Although, I have loads of pictures like that which are mine, that particular one was sent to me, I think, he found it on the net. Not sure. But, the picture is great, I will have to put out little beds for mine. My neighbors get alittle bit upset at times because they think I bring in the deer, lol. It makes me laugh, and they are so serious. I am not outback breeding them. I got to admit, my back yard is an eyesore depending on what you think is nice to look at. I don't mow enough, and the deer love the long grass, and, I think, they are able to sense they are safe there. I have seen small herds back there lol. I love it. I am trying to teach them to eat more grass. Eat, eat... so, I don't have to mow. I am pleased with my wildlife. I sat out on the deck today, and watched first a rabbit. A great rabbit. Then, the albino groundhog. Then, Popcorn came down. Popcorn is honestly, a Cooper's hawk. He is fantastic. Don, he is something to behold. He is quite fully grown but, he still allows me to pet his head and pick up his foot and shake it. I don't know about you, but, to see and experience wildlife like this is so healing. Nothing like it. Come dusk, first one deer came then, another, then, 2 more, then little ones.... and, then, the bucks. At last count I had 12 in my yard. I am sure the neighbors were counting. LOL but, that is a low number. The other day in the afternoon, we had a rather bad collision at the intersection, some bozo decided to do something stupid. Who knows what. But, my elderly neighbor and I was standing there watching the fire trucks, the cops, all the EMR vehicles when, from the back of my house comes a doe. She walks up closer and closer. Marge, my neighbor was getting nervous saying, " that deer is going to kick us." Wow. So, I walked down a few feet and petted its head and nose, showing Marge, this is a nice deer.

    I rememember being at work once, a long time ago, and my husband called me, I was with someone and couldn't pick up the phone, so he left this message:
    "Mommy Too, mommy too, we got mean deer." I called him back when I could, thinking he was joking... and, there he was trapped in the van he was washing down back. He said, a buck was being protective of his family. He wanted me to come home to get him out. ha ha ha ha ha. He said, " these are YOUR deers."

    By the time I got home, he was safe & sound and grilling out. Not deer steaks either. Hot dogs.

    I guess there is always the chance Popcorn could bite, a deer could kick me, but, they could also, not, too. I am more afraid of relatives lol.

    Yes, Don, I am very lucky to see and experience so much. There is nothing like it. I got 2 trees down in the back, that is filled all the time with woodpeckers. Beautiful Woodpeckers. I do a backyard bird count every year.

    If you listen to the birds which I do, I love the Male Cardinals.... ever hear the word they say? it cracks me up every single, time.
