I've been infiltrated...

This morning I came into the living room to find my 10 year old sitting in front of a computer screen filled with pop-ups. "You have a virus, download our software now!" McAffee windows said, "Warning! This web-site is not safe!" And the internet continuously returning to the "unsafe website" that kept advertising that I had a virus.... After some digging around in my computer I found that some changes had been made at 3:41am this morning. That narrows down the first unfortunate victim of this attack to my oldest daughter. Apparently she hit a bad web site that invaded our system.

So now I have spent the better part of my day trying to follow computer instructions that I do not understand. As well as setting up a new phone (which I also do not understand). And answering the "what's for dinner?" question with an "I don't know". So basically I know nothing and I understand nothing and I have accomplished nothing. It's a good thing God's grace isn't dependant on anything I have to do or even understand fully!

I will advertise for a web site that I found, that has given me step by step instructions on how to rid my system of "malware". Great word, isn't it! Check out their site in case you ever need help..
