Okay, I knew better. And I still did it. Read all about the latest stupid virus and the article said if you have the latest security updated, you’re protected. So I did it. The unthinkable. I ran Windows Update.
And now my computer’s *&*^ed up.
My hate/hate relationship with Windows Update happened about a year ago when I let it download and then couldn’t start my computer. And when I finally got it running, I couldn’t get online. $80 later at the computer hospital, they told me that the culprit was the update.
So last night, stupid me ran Windows Update. Like an idiot. Because I’m apparently learning impaired. As soon as it finished installing, MS Word went bye-bye until I downloaded Office again. Now whenever I try to run Outlook, my computer kindly tells me that Windows is not configured to run the program. And it runs like a narcaleptic snail. On downers.
Yes, I uninstalled all the updates. Yes, I tried to restore the drive, but the bugger tells me there are no restore points. Liar!! So odds are pretty good to put Humpty Dumpty back together again, it will be another $80 to the computer hospital.
It drove me to wine. Yes, wine. I love wine, but it doesn’t love me. Gives me headaches, but since I already had one…
True confession time – I love those fruity wines that only teenagers drink. You know, the sugary sweet ones? The wine snob in me (and there’s one in everyone) is appalled by this. But I really love a bottle of blackberry Merlot.
So it’s with a head full of blackberry Merlot that I go in search of a solution.
Crap. Virus scanner’s down now, too. Great. I’ll probably get a virus trying to avoid getting a virus. Bonus.
