Well just when I thought that I was up and running again, something else goes wrong. Last week (or the week before?) my computer came down with a nasty virus. Ironically, the week before that, my neighbors computer had caught a virus, and he had it fixed by a "Guy". I got the Guy's contact info, and he agreed to fix my computer in exchange for a case of beer. :) I bought him beer, he fixed my computer=I'm back in business again. :)
I'm totally thankful that people like that are in the world. He did a great job, and my computer is running better than ever thanks to his fixes and updates.
