Further note to amireal and adannu -- okay, my computer is acting *very weird* so um, might not be on. Sorry! IE keeps trying to shut down rhymelessly and dear God is it running slow. Again. I have a horrible suspicion part of my Saturday will be spent uninnstalling and reinstalling if I can't fix this tonight.

*cuddles laptop* Don't do this to me, Little Colonel. You are *better* than this.

Dear god why are you still using IE?

*pets the laptop*

This is actually punishment for my week without internet isn't it?

You should really, really consider Firefox. Or Opera. Or, well, anything other than IE.

...You named your laptop Little Colonel. I feel a lot better about naming mine Crawford now. :D

*grin* I named my PDA 'El', after the eponymous Banderas in the Mariachi trilogy. *points at icon*

If you need me to babble at you about stuff to keep your laptop clean, I'd be happy to. Firefox's good for starters, but so are a bunch of other things.

Well, if you want to talk to someone who professionally removed viruses from laptops for the last 2 years, I'd be glad to help. But yeah, I'm going to echo the sentiment that you really need to switch to Firefox or Opera. Opera is an excellent, award winning browser, and Firefox is quite good as well.

Download Ewido to start, it's free and will get rid of a lot of stuff.

I ditto the Firefox recommendations. Since I've switched, IE is almost unbearable to use. It's also very vulnerable as far as browser security goes. Besides, you know what tabs--my very favorite Firefox feature--mean? Convenient access to multiple fanfics and research windows simultaneously--which means there's a grotesque lack of delineation between 'work' and 'play' on my laptop.

I figure it's better to waste time reading slash than trying to figure out where IE fucked up [again].
