  • Fri, 09:45: @TheVeiledFox Ah, now I see. I'm sorry you've been thrown into upheaval! Best advice: start collecting unemployment right away and save $
  • Fri, 09:48: @TheVeiledFox Also, you're super educated. You should be able to find something soon. Just don't take too much time off. It adds up

Back in the saddle

Whoo, I had a black touch of death with electronics this week for some reason. But after all those tweets I made about having issues with Windows 10 when they pushed the update, I had to reinstall the operating system.

I also had to buy Office 2016, but it's fine. I can write it off on my home business taxes.

Whatever the issues were, I have a feeling it had a lot to do with all the crap left on my system after I upgraded from 8.1 to 10. My HP had all their bloatware and crap that blew something up, so the only thing to do was a fresh install and wipe everything clean. Cleeeaaannn.

I'm still not up all the way, and I have a bunch of software I need to reinstall, but a shout out to the Firefox extension XMarks for restoring my hundreds of bookmarks after I had to reinstall Firefox, and also thanks to the Classic Theme Restorer extension function so I can make Firefox less awful. Hooray.

And now I shall be looking into buying some external hard drive that will automatically back up my files whenever I add them. I don't have much on my computer, but the majority of the important stuff were files for my editing business. I had a panic attack when I thought I couldn't access them -- including ALL the images and files I used for my website. GAH.

But the panic has passed and whatever broke is fixed (fingers crossed this doesn't happen again though!)

And I think I responded to everyone...I've been down for a week so I might have missed a few comments. I apologize if I did!

  • Thu, 14:33: Tried to restore computer, but there were no restore points (likely because of Windows 10 update), so went with resetting PC...
  • Thu, 14:34: Ran Malwarebytes again and it didn't find anything; now running Defender on full scan. If that doesn't work, fresh install! 😕
  • Thu, 14:36: Working on my partner's PC today. Oh, did I mention reset meant I lost all programs not originally on PC from factory? LOLOL siiiiigh
  • Thu, 17:10: RT @d_haggar: I want this election to be over so badly you'd think it was a friend's play.
  • Thu, 17:18: I haven't seen a Disney animated film in the theatre since Finding Nemo. This will change that. https://t.co/lFj4bgAetq
  • Fri, 09:41: RT @CNN: Clinton: "The good news is my pneumonia got some Republicans interested in women’s health" https://t.co/oZz0jUmo8i https://t.co/zg
  • Fri, 09:43: RT @williameier: "Creativity is like a fart. If you're forcing it, it's probably poop." Overheard in the @filmsupply office.

  • Wed, 15:28: Guess what happened after my Windows 10 update? Adware attack on Firefox! Running Malwarebytes & Defender, but WTF?!
  • Wed, 15:29: Completely locked up Firefox with a real-looking Windows Defender pop-up. Red screen, audio cues, and it's a site I've been to before
  • Wed, 15:31: What's the point of Windows Defender if it's not watching for this stuff? Coincidently Defender updated with Windows update
  • Wed, 15:32: I better not have picked up any viruses or malware. Nervous! Thanks, Microsoft!
  • Wed, 21:13: The damn dog better survive this episode! #ParanormalWitness
  • Wed, 21:23: Windows Defender found the Dynamer trojan on my system. I didn't download anything or open any weird emails...
  • Wed, 21:25: I just went to a website I've been to before and Firefox locked up. Now this. I can't even be sure if the site was to blame
  • Wed, 22:44: This is so stressful... The trojan is actually a false positive. Windows Defender is picking up my HP recovery software.
  • Wed, 22:46: I had to set an exclusion in Defender, which wasn't easy. I don't even know if this will work... I'm stressed and tired. I didn't need this
  • Thu, 09:33: Got some sleep. Computer is in safe mode and shut down. Backed up all important stuff. Scared and not sure what to do. 😔
