Welcome to my blog

Please don't remind me that I'm poor; I'm having too much fun pretending I'm simply "living green" like everyone else these days.

This is soooo wrong!

I'm having troubles with my computer. I keep getting messages that my att internet access and my blogs and my email are blocked until I pay for Microsoft security software. So far I've

been able to get around this by closing things or by unplugging the computer. I will be contacting ATT to see if they can help me figure it out. It seems that Microsoft doesn't want me to access my ATT webmail or Widows Exporer accounts or my Google blog accounts anymore until I pay for the Microsoft security software. I DO NOT want this software and certainly don't intend to PAY for it. I think it totally wrong for Microsoft to highjack a computer until the owner pays for their security software!

I have one more post scheduled for in the morning but if I don't post for a couple of days after that it's because of the computer problem. I'll fill you in later on anything I get quilted.

hmm? we had to go out and buy a new modem yesterday.. seems it was a "bad day' for computers. we also had one HECK of a time setting things back up again,, not a clue why SAME modem, etc. but ATT made us "run the gammit" of getting things working again. INSANITY.

Did you accidentally download a trial version of the software? You may need to uninstall the software to get it off. I so hate Microsoft because of problems like this.

It seems the security 2010 virus is going around the internet. My computer is at the puter doctor getting fixed. This is a really nasty virus! Curse the one who created it!!!!
