Dont Let Me Near A Computer

I'm seriously cursed when it comes to computers. Rusty & I used to share the laptop I now use and he's a total computer geek so he kept this laptop virus free. In the time we shared the darn thing it never blue screened on him or got a virus...very cool.

However, the moment he hands it over to me (because the momma's boy got a new one from his mom) it went straight down the toilet. I actually only use the thing to pay bills, keep records, read blogs & read my celebrity gossip junk. I think I've downloaded maybe 2 things in the 6 months I've had it to myself.

This morning I woke up ready to catch up on all the blogs I follow. I log into Blogger & click on a blog. Then...I get a loading screen...then I get this nifty little message from google informing me of some error & that my computer is sending out random god knows what, so google isn't allowing me to view any blogs. Sucks.

I started to freak out because by now I"m totally going through blog withdrawals but decide it's best to just close the thing down until Rusty wakes up & I can slowly & calmly tell him that I might have broken my laptop. He finally wakes up, it was actually only about 45 minutes but seemed like hours, and he's doing his little tech geek thing & says 'ok, I'm going to have to uninstall this and do this and you cant do this thing anymore....blah blah blah'. In the end, he says I might have visited some sites that gave my computer a virus (or 3) & installed something, so google was just protecting itself.


Anyway, he's now banned me from downloading anything before having him look at it first. I feel like such a child. But, I guess he sort of has reason to be so protective of our computers because we used to have a pretty good PC & somehow I managed to completely kill it. He's tried fixing it & held on for dear life for a few months but...eventually the little trooper gave up. Good news is I'm able to read my blogs again thanks to my geek husband, YAY!

  1. Haha I had that too. Thought it was my fault as well. It turns out it wasn't us at all.
    I began to think everything I touched was at risk of being broken!
    Yey! Not us at all!
