Jul. 14th, 2010

I spent over a week with a computer I couldn't trust; it sent mystery mail to random contacts (including my boss!), Java quit working right, Spybot seemed to make things worse, and finally, even after deleting Spybot, Task Manager told me that my CPU usage was outrageous (the BEST percentage was 50, and 100 was the most common number to pop up).  I ran my PC Tools bought utilities for days on end (or so it seemed), and mostly it didn't seem to uncover anything.

But Sunday, after the umpteenth reboot (and changing my email password), Task Manager said CPU usage was normal (often 0!), Java started working so I could play my games at Pogo again, and no more mystery mail.

Yay!?!!  So far, so good.

I can't describe how low I felt with all the mess, and how lovely it is with my little connection to the world back on track.  I can even stream the feed from my former radio station without a hitch---if they were just playing things beside the elevator music that didn't get much air time when it was alive.  *sigh*  I guess it's summer, hard to get rid of flies.

I love my 'puter when it's working right.  *hugs 'puter*
