Computer problems

Okay, so I was pretty freaked yesterday. Fridaynight/Saturday morning I ran virus scan and I had a virus. The virus was/is called download.trojan and what it does is takes advantage of my internet connection. It goes out and downloads a bunch of other viruses.

Luckily I was able to find it and delete it. But UH OH! No, my virus protection software tells me it can't fix it, so basically I can fix it but I have to do all these wacky steps and reboot in safe mode. So I go through everything and fix it, and then I turn it off and try to reboot in regular mode.

So I reboot and I have to double take, because I throught I went back in time. My old desktop from like 2 years ago pops up.

See when I got this computer, I had a lot of information I wanted to transfer from that computer over onto this one, so to do that, the guys at compusa or wherever took my old C drive and popped it into this comp. Well when I rebooted into safe mode it flipped a couple of switches or something and made my computer boot up the old drive, complete with 2 year old Angel/Angelus desktop wallpaper I didn't even know still existed.

Freaky right?

So I spent all of Saturday night agonizing and waiting for my mom to get up and look at it and it only took her like 20 minutes to fix it. Of course when I usually have computer issues(they pop up every now and then) it usually takes 1-4 days to fix it.

So my computer is still being a bit freaky in the fact that I have to manually switch over to my current drive, but mom things that's fixable. I hope anyway...

That's it for now. :)

P.S. I'm watching Twister and OMG Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Dusty! Haha!
