first off sorry guy if any of you lot got this aswell :(

But like title states I've been off the site for a few weeks now and it was one big nightmare, here how it all started....

I had a weekend off wanted to do some writing but got none of it done. Finally on the sunday I gave in and demanded my own time instaed of going around Grants brothers I stayed at home and began to write... I did about a paragraph when I thought I know Ill post a thread on OFL about the song you would have played at your funeral a bit odd but good topic so I will get to that also.

I loaded up internet only to get a spam of a porn vid of the girl from harry potter and then whack my pc is blocked

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

the message read that my pc was blocked by the police for having porn on it and I had to pay a fine of £300 I knew it was a con but it screwed my pc up big time.

Im on laptop at moment and its really annoying.

Anyway I thought I had lost everything and nearly have Ive had to reformat my c and e drives luckily for me my stories were safe and I havent lost any of them but this than also caused my internet to crash and burn out. We got a new rooter only to have internet go down for 3days anyway and my pc still wont link up to net now its messed up big time so need new pc thats the jist of things.

:) So how is everyone? I was looking to upload some new updates did some changes and have some to do, but I hate this laptop I going mad trying to type this. :)

Great to hear from you again, Jnet! I was actually wondering why you disappeared all of a sudden...

Sorry to hear about your problems with your computer. I can totally relate to that since I'm an IT person. It's not unheard of for me to hear about trojan/malware infections in computers. A piece of advice though...Before you go out and buy a new PC, try to reformat your hard drive first then factory reset your router so both of them have a fresh start. If you don't feel too comfortable setting up the router manually, just run the CD that came with it and it should walk you through the whole step. One thing you might want to look into is getting Firefox and installing this add-on called WOT. That will notify you if the site you're going to has a bad reputation. It would help keep your PC from getting infected in the future.

Hope that helps and welcome back! :)

yea Im on firefox now and Grant wont let me use any other thing now :)

We have got a new rooter and so on and Grants tried everthing to get my pc to accept internet, it says its there but wont let me go on to anything. He says its because its xp and needs updating to windows7 so he is going to do that. We have reformatted c drive and my e drive because my pc wont reset anyway it never has and it also refused to run in safemode at the time. Its being a pain. Its lost its sound and Grant thinks the motherboard it just too messed up now anyhow so all in all its a new pc ready for guild wars :) Got to look at the good side I guess.

Im also so glad that my stories were ok thats like 2years worth of work I nearly lost. I do have several back up but still they were ten pages short of the one saved on my pc. Talk about heart failure when it happened

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

if your computer can turn on, you should be able solve the virus issue. i would recommend using DBAN. u can burn it as an ISO to a disk. this will truly wipe your hard drive. it takes several hours. then you can just boot up with your windows disk.

do you already have plans for something like this.

....
before trying this, i recommend trying to download "AVG free", (if your computer will let you)... run that . it will find the trojans and delet them. if you pc won't let you do this. do the first step.

glad your back. :)

I prefer kapersky rescue cd myself since it boots you into linux, and does an av scan, preventing the windows virus or malware from even detecting it.

that sounds like the way to go Rocksor.

i have heard good things about Kapersky. i just haven't pulled the trigger on a paid virus scan.
