Hey Oh My,
I got a mess and I cain't get up. Okey dokey. I is gonna start the puzzle. I was watchin a movie (okay streamin) and some pop up pages, popped up and as usual I closed them. Well one was stubborn and kept askin me, Iffen I wanted to leave the page, I wanted to, but it decided I shouldn't, so I pulled out the ole ctrl alt delete bat, and hit em onna haid. Upon restart I was reintroduced to said previous page requesting the $300 bucks. So now I looked at it and lo and behold the FBI, Cyber somethin or tother had been watchin my travels and decided I should go purchase a 300 dollar card and submit it to a certain site.
Okay I got nervous and google became my friend, till I remembered, I had much better friends, that prolly knew something about this stuff. Hustlin over to Bleepin Cornpruter, I frantically started readin posts and decided I was way over my head and had no Idea which way to turn. Got out the discs and burner, and comenced draggin n droppin. Since I was afraid it might get to my external hard drive I burned most important files and looked to see if some of them were already encrypted. Okay now I gotta tell ya I don't know what an encrypted file looks like, so a fine tizzy I find myself in.
Now I am waitin for the whole thing to implode and wonder if there is something to be done, before Armaggedon arrives. Yeah, I supposedly have been backin up but my external is too small and wont hold but one back up atta time, I have been derelect in my duties to resolve that issue. And I don't know if it backed up cuz I don't know what a backup file should look like. Geez I hope there ain't too many like me. So now I sit shiverin anda shakin, quiverin and quakin, hoping OH MY can save my rear.
Please move this post to the appropriate spot and put me in line for a tongue lashin, I have earned it.
