|I was almost to this point!!!!|
UH-OH!! - So, when I went to remove what I thought were infected programs (or fake programs) I accidentally removed the wireless program to my modem! OH NO!!! I learned about it first thing Thursday morning when I tried to access email to telework. Fortunately, I had my office computer, too, so I used that.
EXPENSE OF COMPUTER FIXES - I called Comcast (our service provider) because when I put the disk in to reload the program to connect the wireless, it wouldn't run. They said "sorry, can't help you, but we can transfer you to a computer service that will charge you $129.00 to talk about it over the phone." Arrggh!!! So, no internet, no virus protection, and $129.00. I said "NO." - I called a local Geek computer place and they said $100.00 for the first 30 minutes and $25.00 each additional 15 minutes. I said "NO."
RESET TO PREVIOUS TIME - So, after about an hour I managed to find a "reset to previous date" and got the wireless program back! (I couldn't figure out where in the world to find that button!!) WHEW. One issue fixed.
