I? I am highly fussed. I leave for Japan in slightly over two weeks and I absolutely must have a functional laptop then for photos.
Annoyingly, I can find no mention of this kind of annoyance online. I am currently running a Symantec anti-virus scan (fat lot of good you have been so far, stupid anti-virus program) and hope that maybe it can dig something up. I have no idea how this thing got onto the computer or how it got activated. It was working fine this morning. When I went out to do stuff at lunch, the problem had appeared. I didn't go to any dangerous sites or click any suspicious links this morning, and the computer was off in between when it was working and when it was not. I am most baffled. And not in the least bit amused.
If anyone has heard of something like this and has advice for getting rid of it, I would be most appreciative.
