Sneaky little blighter!

Despite having a good (and free download) virus checker on board and disabling automatic updates, Hubby detected a virus on my laptop that was slowing everything down.
It started with me deciding to housekeep my files as my hard drive was almost full, so it was obviously time to transfer my photos to a USB key.
However, even doing that, I didn’t free up a lot of space, so Hubby took over.

Oh gawd.
I had adverts running in the background, my machine badly needed defragging, and that’s when he discovered the virus. It had been isolated by the checker, but somehow I had missed the warning and it was taking up valuable room.
It has taken the better part of 6 HOURS to sort everything out and finally here I am.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
