Last night when I couldn't sleep I read some blogs and came across this fun quiz....which Incredibles character are you? So I took the quiz b/c I love those silly quizzes and posted my results on my blog. But no sooner had I visited that site, but I had about 50 pop-up ads taking over locking up my machine. It happened so fast that I couldn't keep up--talk about feeling out of control! Eventually I was able to run Ad-Aware, a program that finds and removes or quarantines this junk. It found 958 files!!!!! 958 that must be new b/c hubby had just cleaned my pc last weekend. But even then it couldn't remove everything. I tried running a similar program called SpyBot, but some other program kept shutting it down. So I shut everything down and went to bed.
Hubby is going thru my pc this morning deleting stuff, and I'm on his pc. I wanted to remove my Incredible character blog right away before anyone tried it for themselves and got hit like I did. What a nightmare! I've done several of those quizzes before and never experienced those incessant pop-ups. Makes you feel violated in a way.
Oh, in case you were wondering.....my character was Mr. Incredible himself. It really didn't seem to fit me, but I'm pretty sure these quizzes aren't based on scientific data. :) I was really hoping to be Elastigirl...she is way cool!
