Last month I tried to download free music. You know the old saying,"If you sleep with dogs you're bound to get fleas" well I got something on my computer that wiped it out.
After I was done attempting to download the music, Iran my spysweeper to make sure I got rid of any spyware crap that may have jumped on board. For some reason it took forever. Anyway, when it was done running it said there were over 5000 instances of spyware. I was shocked because normally it may be one or two that show up. I clicked the "remove" button and that took so long that I left it running and went to bed. The next day I got up and checked the computer. It had a message on it saying, "You must restart your computer to finish removing the spyware" When I clicked the "restart now" button, all hell broke loose. All of a sudden my screen turn blue and it started scrolling through every file on my computer. Little did I know it was deleting everything.
I tried to get on line but it said the program I was trying to access had been uninstalled. I tried to run my anti-virus and it said it had been uninstalled. EVERYTHING I tried to open said the same thing, It was all gone. EVERYTHING!!!!!Has anyone heard of this happening? I was in shock, it brought a tear to my eye. Then I got pissed. Does it sound like a virus?
