For two days I have been wrestling with add-in or add-on stuff on my computer and kept getting messages to call a certain number - that was listed in one of the postings I was receiving without my permission. It could have been some sort of virus (man made) attached to one of the messages that was sent me. Trying all kinds of stuff to clear up my computer and get rid of this malware did not work. I kept getting big messages on a blue screen with all kinds of dire warnings to call a certain listed number and they would help me straighten out my computer. Of course if I called them…there would be a fancy charge with all kinds of wording to use their skill to keep my computer running and safe for a monthly charge. I could not use my mouse; it would not point and had no effect on what was posted on those huge typed blue screens. Turning the computer on and off was no help. Finally I was able to start my computer in safe mode by hitting F8 on my keyboard a number of times…and come to a restore point in safe mode…that did the job, I went back to a couple days earlier before all this mishagoss (crazy stuff) started. It took almost 45 minutes in safe mode for the computer to restore its operation to an earlier date before all the bother started. Finally the computer…like magic…restarted and was like it old self and had no problems or add-ins or add-ons or hints of a virus and I was one happy camper whose left arm is the computer to do stuff on its electronic brains. I ain't no surgeon…but I sure as hell got rid of what was ailing my poor left arm. Accomplishment is better than icing on the cake.
