I think I may have been hacked. So far I haven't noticed anything amiss aside from Chrome being a ***** and not being able to access my network printer. I hope this isn't the case. Mom told me about a new bug she recently heard about and that hackers have been using 'back door' tactics to do evil things. I really hope this isn't the case. I have antivirus software but, no AV software is perfect.
Dad found a trojan on my computer, one that wasn't detected by the AV software I have. He removed it for me but it makes me wonder just how new the trojan is to not be caught by the AVS.
I so want to kill something right now. 1/2 of my computer is locked by some stupid ******* virus and I can't backup anything because of it. I'm currently trying to find a fix but everything that I have found will not work because I either don't have it or don't have access to it. This bug is apparently a new version of an old one from the Win XP days.
Spent all day wiping and starting the rebuilding of my computer data wise. I hate doing this. But the virus is gone and hopefully won't return.
After more fighting and researching why stuff wasn't doing what it's supposed to, I think I have it all relatively to where it once was. While transferring files from my backup I accidentally deleted a big folder of data that had some important stuff in it but didn't notice it until about an hour later so there was a mad rush to try and recover the data which even after working at it for a full day was fruitless. It was all so fragmented that nothing could put it back together. Some of those said files were pictures of one of my snakes that I had to let go earlier this year due to illness. After going through extensive means to back those up, a stupid lapse in thinking deleted them forever. FFR, don't work on stuff when you're tired.
