Entry: "*whew*"

Why is it that my computer would pick Saturday morning as soon as I log on to decide that it doesn't recognize me? I mean here I am fresh outta bed, all rough-looking, still got eye-boogies in my eye and this foo computer wants to play games? My first reaction in my mind was.."*&%#@*..A frickin virus or worm, or trojan, or spybot, or script, or...", feel me? My illogical mind (bad Greggy) immediately went into full stage panic mode and did the old 3 key salute (cntrl, alt, del) and rebooted...of course all was in vain...Then my logical mind (good Greggy) remembered something..
Seeing as how I had just installed my new COREL12 Graphics Suite just the night before it was only logical that instead of a virus, perhaps there was some sort of configuration error in my start-up routine since the PC kept locking as soon as it got to my desktop after I logged on but before the programs had a chance to load. I finally narrowed it down to to this scenario: my anti-virus program was freezing up and locking the PC right at the desktop. After a whole day of trying to get to the screen where I could get to task manager to stop my anti-virus program from loading I succeeded late last night in regaining control and uninstalling then re-installing both my anti-vrius program and the COREL12 Graphics Suite again...As of right now I'm good to go again!

Now it's time to play with my new toy!! Plus, I'm on vacation too for a whole week!! Is that just the coolest news or what? I'm going to chill big-time this week coming...I hope to at least..LOL

My AOL dumps me all the time. I probably have spyware messing in the bowels of the machine sad I'm glad you were able to sort out your computer's hiccups...it can lead to withdrawal symptoms not having access to your stuff smile Can't wait to see what graphics you conjure up.
All the best,
Meadow
