Martin Luther King Day

Today is Martin Luther King Day. It is the celebration of the life of our great civil rights leader; Reverend Martin Luther King. He is most famous for his beloved speech I Have a Dream,which contains the line "I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character".If you would like to read the full speech, you can find it at MLK Online. This site also has pictures,videos, and other information on the late, great Martin Luther King.

My computer was attacked!

The other day, I was innocently entering giveaways on my laptop when up popped a program called Malware Defender. The pop-up wouldn't X out and kept telling me I was infected. Then I got several more pop-ups inviting me to send them money for them to get rid of the pop-ups. These pop-ups took over my whole computer-they even overwrote my McAfee program. I cannot even start my computer in safe mode to attempt to fix it. I then got a rash of little pornography shortcuts on my desktop. I don't have any idea what program I opened to cause this, but my laptop is toast. I had to buy another laptop and now I am afraid to open anything for fear it will happen again. I am researching virus protection and hopefully this will never happen again-it could get expensive!
