I'll start with the bad news first because I'd like to cheer myself up with the good news later, like desert. I don't know what a pen drive is, so I'm pretty sure I don't have one. I have run SDFix in normal mode on this (my) computer and on his computer. On this (lexicom) computer I get to see that I am carefree, virus free. On his (the black tower) computer, I don't get to see a thing unless I hit ALT CTRL DEL and get to see that SDfix is running but can't use it. My computer is the what-do-you call it? The placebo, the CONTROL! Yeah, that's it.
I'm tickled that I could attach SDfix to email and download it onto the husb's computer. It's not helping, but to repeat myself over and over again, when I get on the husb's computer, I can't even look up virus definitions on Wiki. His Black Tower's infection won't let me get close to a place to eliminate it. I can look up homeless shelters for dogs, recipes for spaghetti, British deserts, but if I try to sign on to bleepingcomputer, I either get a 'PAGE NOT FOUND' error or I get directed to some random yellow page.
What a flipping smart virus thingie! I could strangle the author(s). I feel like I am part of a Batman Movie or worse. (Sorry to any Joker fan.) All that brain power devoted to evil instead of good! How carelessly (s)he regards other people's important stuff. Sorry, temper tantrum.
So, the good news. Um, the good news. The less than reformatting good um news. sdfksjsjksljsdf fj adsjfd fa<--that's me pacing. the good news. Once upon a time, a long time ago, I thought I could remove my husband's hard drive from his computer and install it into mine and all would be swell. <--this is an aside.> Well, that's not happening. that was a naive thing. But I could store his stuff over here for a minute. skdfjskjskjjsdakl;sdfkjsdf,---still pacing.
Back to the good news. We both have XP and on good days can share a printer. Anytime I am online, we share the internet. The husby's computer is about 10 paces down the hall. I think I have mentioned that I can follow instructions. If I didn't, well, I'm proclaiming it now. I'm going to try f4 tomorrow.
If I haven't said thanks, then, well, thanks!
