I hope that your Labour Day (if it's Labour Day wherever you're at) is shaping up to be a nice one. Ours has been pretty good so far, as we have been able to get a few thing accomplished that have been nagging on me.

Ok... anyone know much about computer viruses?
I have known that Beauregard (yes, my puter has a name) has been suffering with a virus for some time now. Back in the spring, I went for a couple of days between the end of my free trial of McAfee that came with this computer when we got it and when we were able to load some new software, and I'm pretty sure that's when it hit. I know it's got some elements of a redirect virus (I've had one of those before) along with pop-ups (some of which are nasty). Particularly irksome is the fact that the anti-virus software I have doesn't recognize that there's a virus on my computer.
Anyway, today the sound has just stopped working on my computer. Headphones don't work, speakers don't work. Is it possible for a virus to mess with the sound?
I don't use sound a lot, but Ginny watches youtube clips of Sesame Street on this computer and Elmo without his voice just doesn't cut it.
I know I need to take Beauregard to the computer doctor, and the thought of that actually makes me kind of sick to my stomach because of the cost. But I don't want to let this go any longer and cause more problems. Ugh... and just the idea of being without my computer for a week is icky!
