More About My Computer Issues

I still haven't gotten to download everything on my computer since having to start all over.  What the hijack was from is some how I managed to go to a Web site or downloaded something that attached to my computer.  It was called Security Toolbar 7.1 .  That in turns jams up your computer so it moves at a snails pace.  I tried looking for a free way to get rid of it but there wasn't much out there.  At least not for Vista which is what I have.  So instead of  buying a program which we really can't afford right now I just did a total restore on my computer.  I just saved everything to my flash drive that I really wanted (wasn't a whole lot).  I still need to install some fonts and my favorites list but nothing too important.  I didn't feel like dealing with that today LOL.

On a good note since I did do a total restore on my computer I don't have as much junk on it and it runs much better LOL.  I am going to try my best not to download every cool little thing I find LOL.  That and not add too many files hehe.  I have all my pics on my flash drive so if I need to use a pic I can download it and when I don't need it can delete it or something.  I am going to really try not to put too much on here and also do regular defragmenting and virus and spyware scans. I had done them before but I have to admit I would forget here and there. 

Hopefully soon I will have more to blog about then just my computer problems LOL.  Today was just another laundry day at the Laundromat.  So how have you been?

All my pictures wouldn't fit on a flash drive. *lol*

I can't get the restore to work on my laptop, and believe me, it could use it. It came with a restore disk, but I just can't get it to work... Highly annoying!
