I really hate always being the negative bastard, but I swear things just keep piling onto me.
Last night I had a scare that my computer may have gotten infected by adware or spyware or whatever. I was looking at something and somehow got redirected to some unknown site, which had a pop-up that tried to prevent me from leaving. After doing some research on google, people were reporting getting adware or some other junk related to it. I've been frantically trying to scan my computer and clean it to the best of my abilities.
It's probably not a huge deal to most people, but this kind of thing is very anxiety-inducing for me. I've had so many piss poor experiences with PC issues before, like faulty updates nearly corrupting or bricking things, that pretty much any technical issue gives me anxiety. I'm computer-smart, just not smart with fixing these sort of things. Unfortunately there's really nothing I can do about this. I've tried getting Spybot Search & Destroy, which I've used before and seemed to work good, but the only free edition they have left is the outdated version which is now completely useless. It won't let me scan unless I update it, but it says there are no updates. I'm pretty mad over this.
My other scans didn't brought up anything, couldn't find anything new installed, and start up and net browsing seems normal. I'm still cautious however. I can only hope that what happened was just a fluke and that nothing occurred, but that is hard to say.
Doesn't help that I'm really sick right now with something too and that today is a scorcher. I don't need this. I was going to continue working on the next Nuzlocke page, but I really don't feel up to it right now.
