I'm sorry I've been absent for the past week +. My computer was taken over, again, by "something" and finally failed to execute the simplest commands I would give it. So..., for those who don't know me well... my husband is a computer programmer, adult grandson who lives with us is certified in computer hardware, and do you think I can get one of them to fix it??? I've gone from this sad to this mad in the past few days. And I'm rapidly changing to this little devil . Got to thinking that both of them sure do enjoy having a hot supper each evening. idea I just might have the leverage I need to get that machine up and running.... smhair

Hope to be on regularly soon...using hubby's machine isn't the easiest thing I've ever done.

A home cooked meal goes a long way at my house, lol. I don't cook very often. I think you have some good leverage there. Hope its fixed soon. Susie

    ...Glad to see you back! It's been a while...but always a welcome site! wink
         Your name came up today, and Stray and I wondered where you had been. Computer problems...we all have them...but since we switched over to a iMac three years more problems to speak of...maybe a server problem or two...but computers have been flawless! We love them!

Hi Chutz,

It's been awhile.... but it's good to see a post from you. I hope you are doing ok - other than trying to get your computer fixed, lol....

I know how it is - my husband's a general contractor - yet, we've got things here that NEED to be done! It's frustrating yeah

Anyway, just wanted to say hello.... take care!

Sounds like one of your computer guru's need to get you some anti-virus. Been wondering where you've been!!

DDD, osteoarthritis, facet syndrome, fusion surgeries C-5/7 & L-4/5 both in 2006, torn meniscus surgeries left knee 2000 & 2002, herniated disc at L-2/3 , fibromyalgia, polymyalgia rheumatica

I agree it sounds like a computer virus...would be nice if you tell it to take it easy and rest up
for a few days and that would make it better...hahaha, but joking aside...hope your back up soon....
Could also be a "Windows" meltdown if your using Microsoft...Programers are good at programming
but not so much for computer fixes...don't call the geek squad teenagers might not help, if you have
a Store called "Fry's" maybe go there and ask them...If you need any computer componets "NewEgg"
is a good place to start looking....and if you wanna try to rebuild a rig go to "Overclockersforum"
They are the expert building community of building a new computer "barebones" from cases on up....
But I don't really think you need to build a new rig yet...
