I apologize if I haven’t responded to an your email or comment but I have been dealing with a nasty computer virus since Friday. The one that redirects your Google searches. Not fun. I am also leaving today for an installation in The Hamptons. I have uploaded some posts so hopefully you will have something to read while I am away. And if anyone has any suggestions for my computer, please let me know. If not, I guess a trip to the Apple store will be on my agenda this weekend.

    We got the same virus….I think we tried everything. We backed up and reinstalled the OS. Good luck!

    Yes, this happened to me a couple of weeks ago…Totally annoying, you have somehow picked up a spyware virus. It was easy to fix, but I have a Tosihba laptop, not Apple. Anyway, I took my laptop to Bestbuy (where I bought it), and was told to restore it to its factory state using the recovery disk (which came when you bought it) – Basically wipes your hard-drive clean. All you do in insert it into the CD area and run the program. It takes about 15-20 minutes, but make sure that you back-up your docs, internet favorites, outlook, etc. My computer is back to normal….Good luck!!
