Mr Chick’s computer II

I often wonder if people used their energies for GOOD instead of BAD how different this world could be.  Our computer whiz-bang removed the creature that had infected our computer but not before it had changed the registry to its own devices.  Sadly  it will require a clean install of the OS.  Thankfully Mr Chick’s computer is mainly his toy and will have its important stuff saved and he will get a “new” fast computer, but sadly, it costs us about $200 for the priviledge.

They get more and more clever, teasing the user to think they have something wrong with their computer and tricking them into clicking on stuff they shouldn’t.  This is the first time that we have had to deal with this because they systems we have in place to prevent this kind of thing has always worked for us..Unfortunately they cannot stop “user brain fart” from clicking on naughty stuff. LOL.

Hopefully we will bring home the  patient tomorrow and begin the process of putting his favorite programs back on..I however will oversee his progress and will install his security software!
