I deleted, re-installed: same thing.
So when a message popped up that my flash settings were outmoded, or something, I figured, hey! maybe the crashes are due to that.
As soon as I opened up the program, I knew I had done something very, very, very bad. Sure enough, soon afterwards, Marni and Bobbi and Suzi showed up on my computer, looking for video chats, and i don’t think they wanted my advice on higher education.
In the middle of the night, I got more nasty messages and videos.
A full day of virus scans proved fruitless, and now I’m calling in the big guns. And I’m also taking my beloved old Firefox for a spin.
