Hi -- If you get an email from me with a blank subject - don't open it. I have no idea in the world how this happened and I'm sorry. I ran 3 anti-virus programs on my computer and can't find a thing.

Same thing happened to my daughter, Nancy.  I got one from her and it had a link, which I refused to click on.  The sneaky people in this world will always find a way to exploit technology.  All we can do is be vigilant and super careful.

Nobody will blame you Nancy.  You didn't ask for somebody to do this.

Some people must have too much time on their hands and try to mess others up with such things.

It is so annoying that these geeks have nothing better to do than to cause people's computers to crash. Maybe we should start a prayer chain for them. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Angela --   What a good Christian idea. 
He said, "Pray without ceasing" and He prayed for the people who put Him on the cross.

I run my AVG, SuperAntiSpyware, and AntiMalware........ I used to run them every day then read some where that once a week was the ideal schedule - once a day was too often.  Good grief.  Now I run them every 3 or 4 days.
Why didn't one of them find any sort of virus last night?

because they design these things to go around our protections--------------------i don't know about a lot of things because my son or one of my grand nephews--------know how to do almost everything or who to call & walk-thru

also the computer guy in my newspaper says to go on   malwarebytes.com for other scans to run------but i don't do any of this myself

i just learned about the safe mode on the computer when all this happened

I wish the people who create these virus programs would use their minds and time for something creative that would help people.  Think how much better they could make the world.  Praying for them is a great idea.  Much better than my reaction.

Most of these scams lead someone to your personal information so they can try to steal your identity.  It all has to do with money.  Obviously they are too lazy to get a real job and earn their money.
Sorry, Nancy that you are a target, hope it all works out.  I have had other friends that have been "invaded" it is a pain in the neck.  Glad to see that you discovered the problem and have warned others.  Good Luck!!  Thanks for the warning!!!

Nancy, I got your email while I was out and clicked on from my phone.  Could not understand why there was nothing.  When I got home I saw your other one so I deleted right away the first. 
Thank you for the warning and I hope none of your "elderly" friends were adversely effected.
