Whoever said computers are supposed to make our lives easier? After cleaning up the spyware stuff and being on the mend last week, I clicked "yes" to install some windows updates to my computer and don't you know, it crashed the whole thing. I was so upset, called my brother in tears. After having spent already about 20 hours on it, it all crashed, through no fault of my own. So, I had Dell help me start over and one by one, I am adding my programs back. I decided to add the XP update for WIndows, service pack 2. I spent about 6 hours trying to get the darn update, never really being successful and having no idea why. Thank goodness for system restore, sort of a do-over.
I then spent hours trying to turn off my firewall for windows XP, following the directions, only to find it buried somewhere in the websites that I cannot configure it with AOL dial-up...HELLO, why is that buried 10 pages deep in the program? ANyway, I have a plan and am excited to maybe be back up and running. I have not gone online all weekend because I have no protection. Whew, am I pooped!
Onc appointment next month....my 5 years with Tamox is up in 5 months (holy cow!), and I want to ask the onc about stopping it a couple months early. I am eager to lose the 20+ pounds I have gained, especially since my brother is getting married sometime this year. Anyone else quit a couple months early?
And Luci, keeping you in my thoughts for your test results...and Jo-ANn, how are your nails looking??
