I received the bleeding - heart virus from downloading from the wrong Google- Chrome sight. I took my Fujitsu tablet to school and caught it just in time. However, It is still running little bit slow. I came to the forum today to find out if Google-Chrome is safe now, and which one I can download safely,It went completely all the way into my Microsoft. I couldn't even get on the internet. Thank you everybody for all the Great info here.. Anyone know the right sight? And, any opinions on just working straight off Linux on my Fujitsu tablet?

 Hi, Andrea.  Welcome to BC. :welcome: 

First the rules here.  We aren't supposed to discuss malware and viruses here, the place for that is the Am I Infected forum.  But about Chrome, I've been using it for several years with no problem.  You just download it from https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/ .  

 Now regarding Linux, you can download the Mint version (my favorite) from here  http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php and burn it to a DVD, then boot from it, click the TRY button (so you don't have to install anything on your hard drive), and be up and running in about 3 minutes.  Another popular version of Linux is Ubuntu which you can download from http://www.ubuntu.com/download and the same as you would with Mint.  Both of these have Windows-like user interfaces, but Mint is more like Windows and has a better selection of software packaged with it.  Both come with Firefox, so you can get on the Internet easily with them, and they both come with LibreOffice which is pretty much like MS Office.  There is no cost with either, and they are both supported.

 

Good luck.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:
