Virus Issues

I had to take my laptop back to the computer store to get 'mind wiped' and reloaded, because of Virus issues!

Borrowed the use of a laptop to post this message and will be back to the Inn on a regular basis whenever I get my laptop back from the shop!

Ha Ha Haaaaa Eol

The Computer Tech mentioned that one of the ways to get Viruses is by clicking on the 'Update Flash Player' announcement, which is what I did Sunday night (and had done a few days earlier) also!

Monday morning I had a popup that told me I had to call a toll free number to find out how to get rid of a malware virus and I could not close the popup, nor could I open another Tab!

So I had to restart my laptop, make sure all my Red Dragon Inn game info was in a New Emergency Folder, copied that folder to my Flash Drive and then took my laptop to have it 'mind wiped' and reloaded, so I wait patiently for its return and my return to being 'Active on the Inn'

More Laptop Problems

Did not get anything written today as I had to go and buy another laptop.

Perhaps Sunday!

So just buying a hard drive wouldn't cure the issues?
