Computer Virus

The last three days have been absolutely exhausting. I got a computer virus late Saturday night... and it was the worst I've ever had. After trying everything I could possibly think of, I finally just did a full system reformat. Which basically means it's back to the way it was when you first get it. Most of my personal files are okay since they were on a separate drive. Thank God!

So, in the end, all I lost was about a month's worth of Sims 2 data. Which isn't that bad, all things considered. But I still had to reinstall/redownload all of my programs and adjust my settings and such. And you should be able to tell how much of an impact it had on me... considering I'm actually posting about it.

So, yeah... I haven't been around... that's why. But once I do a back up of my files (Which I should have done Sunday... but yeah, kind of couldn't.), I shall finally be released from this curse and able to breathe again. Hurray!

Ugh. I know seems like it happens to me about once every year/year and a half.

But hey, we haven't talked in some time. How are you? ^_^

I know, it's been ages! I've been so busy at Uni and stuff (and technically I'm not even supposed to be online now!). It seems to happen to me every year or so as well. I think it's the extensive downloading! :P

I'm really good, enjoying Uni immensely but I'm trying to get a job and desperately trying to write covering letters and I am USELESS at it!

How are you? x

HeH. Well, this time, I got mine from some random page asking me to update my video player. And I said... okay! And BOOM! So watch out!

Ah, other than the virus... Well, I've decided to take a GED. But yeah, not the easiest thing to arrange when you can't be in an unfamiliar place with a bunch of people. I wanted to get in done before the craziness of Christmas kicks in, but it might take that long just to process our request. So more days of endless nothingness for me, really. I've promised myself to write more, though. We'll see if that goes through.

I HATE those viruses. I got one a while ago and it really slowed my computer and practically rendered it unusable. Antivirus programs are such a pain in the ass as well.

Ugh. I can't even believe the anti-virus program we paid 50-some dollars for was completely useless. So frustrating.
