This week has been a nightmare for me (computer wise).  It all started at the beginning of the week when we changed Broadband providers.  Couldn't belief how easy it was - everything was already done for us and all I had to do was unplug the old one and replace with the new one - So simple!

Things went wrong when I couldn't get the printer to work - some how I must have clicked the wrong link!  Panicking I phoned the company who look after the problems with my computer for me.  They said they would phone back but meanwhile I managed to find the problem and got the printer working OK.

Decided as they were on the line I might as well have my computer checked.  Wished I hadn't they told me that my computer may have been hacked and that there were 124 attempts of someone getting into my computer!!!!!!

I don't bank on line but I do buy on line so I had to cancel banks cards - so not able to spend any money until the new cards arrive!

Meanwhile the Computer guys phoned back the next day and cleaned everything up but said that someone had deleted my anti-virus protection and I needed additional software due to the fact that my computer may have been hacked but they couldn't tell for definite.

Then the stinger they wanted another £110 for 12 months even though I had only paid the same amount 6 months ago and was told I was fully protected and any problems I was just to phone.

I got really freaked when I couldn't remove the remote control programme - the fact that it kepted coming up with I didn't have permission to remove it really sent me into overdrive!

I have now added another virus protection which now shows that everything is protected but still having all sorts of problems with the computer locking, not responding and just so slow loading.

Guess I'll just have to monitor things and hope that its just a temporary blip!
