It's Been a Long Few Days... Maybe "The End Of The World"...

... that's been predicted for today might be a welcome respite! :)

Heidi came down with some sort of a nasty bug Wednesday night. You name it... and it was sick... Neither of us has slept much since...

The Forest Service came by the next morning and requested we move camp, as where we were wasn't supposed to have been opened up yet... They agreed to let us just stay that night, since we'd already dropped the check in the fee box...

...another long, long night...

We finally went in to urgent care yesterday morning, when things seemed to be declining a bit more... and ended up in the Vernal Hospital ER for a few hours... got her all doped up with this and that... which she had a rather negative reaction too last night... again, drugs or not... no sleep...

so... fatigue is starting to pile up!

Now... to shine things up... I get up this morning... fire up the laptop... and some sort of phony "Malware Protection" program has seized my main laptop... which leaves me building this post on my lil' Acer... while my REAL virus protection tries to clean up the other machine...

So... far, the scan has been running for 45 minutes and hasn't found anything yet... though... the "Phony" program keeps popping up... that Laptop may be down until I can get it into a computer geek who knows how to kill that sorry trojan crud...

What a bummer! That Panda software has kept me clean for several years... this is the first time it's let me down... and perfect timing too! :)

Yes sirree... a shiny couple of days!

At least it hasn't rained in a few hours... and there's actually a few patches of blue sky showing... Guess I'll just shut ever'dang thing off and go take a walk! ... We did get reset in a real pretty camp... Skull Creek Campground just about a mile up the road from our first camp here at Flaming Gorge...

Nice camp set in the pines... and we're tee total alone here... so, maybe just taking a "day off" in the fresh air will calm things down a touch... let's hope! :)

Came into the office for my workkamping gig this morning to discover utter chaos had erupted. I'm putting it off on the world having the "Reset" since THE END didn't happen yesterday. lol

Hope things continue to improve over there. Sometimes all we can do is roll with the punches!

To get rid of the bug set the date of the computer (date and time thing) at least 5 days ahead and reboot. Evidently the Anti virus ad stays on your computer for 5 days This worked for me.

Carol and Johnny; only... I'm gettin' badly bruise from all the "Punches" and the subsequent "Rolling" I've been doin'!!! :) sometimes I wanna just go Dirty Harry on it all! :)

Wiseone; hmmm... if it will let me do that I'll give it a try... so far it's been locking me out of everything... I was surprised that my virus software was even able to come up... everything else just "Blinks" quick and shuts off before I can do anything... I'll fire up that machine and try the "time" reset you've suggested!

I've been using the free version of AVG antivirus for like 20 years and it has never let me down.

I also use Spybot and malwarebytes. Both free also.

I second Anon-e-mouse on the software. However, we have been getting a lot of those down here in Honduras. Delete your cookies and temporary internet files, and run spybot. If that doesn't work, make a new profile (yes, that last is true, but I know that look I just got and I'm giggling...) You could also reset back a week or so before it showed up, though you might lose any newer stuff on the computer. Never actually done that myself since it's not an Enterprise (big business) method of fixing stuff. We just blow it all away and reimage...
