My Computer Took a Shit

Post  Smashy B on Wed Nov 12, 2008 10:48 pm

Yeah... on Sunday and Monday my comp was acting up saying I had all these infections on my PC and this anti-virus software that was telling me this was trying to sell itself to me when I was already using another software for FREE. Well, complications, tech issue, it saying I have unregisterd virus software, clusterfuck, and other shit. Anyway, it finally gave out on Tuesday, real sad. Now I'm looking at it before I fork over money to fix it because somebody told me that it could be this scam selling a fake program and fuckin up mah shit to convince me. It's a good thing Wii has interweb, cause I've been using it a lot more now. I have the point 'n click typing down, but it's still a bitch to use.

Anyway, got any computer crash/malfunctioning stories?

"Could be" nothing. Only thing that brings up window's saying 'hey download this anti-virus software to fix it' are viruses themselves.....but I'll definitely admit, that's the first time I've heard of one that actually started messing with the cpu to make it seem real.

It wasn't saying, "Hey download This," per say. Rather, it was saying I had X number of infections and it would remove them if I just push a button, but when I do, it brings up a registration e-mail and password. So it must want me to buy something.

Whatever. Imma try to fix it this afternoon.

ITS A TRAP!

Seriously though, good call. We had that happen to us at home, like, the EXACT same thing. We had been going around downloading the free trial anti virus stuff from McCaffee and stuff, but whatever one we were on ran out, and immediatly viruses started pouring in from myspace. Thanks Sis.

My compy is currently completely busted. We get lots of power outages up here, and we had a particularly bad one two days ago. My surge protector didn't work, and my hard drive got fried. Everything else is fine, I'm pretty sure. I'm going to go to circuit city tomorrow and pick up a new one plus a backup battery to solve the spike problem.

Currently typing on my PS3, so I know your pain. On the bright side, this shouldn't cost you anything. Worst case scenario, you re-format.

I was 11 years old, on my dad's laptop. I booted up "Star Wars: Droidworks." A fan overheated, stuff engmsploded, and, long story short, there was smoke billowing out the back of the computer.

Okay, progress update:

My computer is still in cahoots. However, I've had to get on to do some stuff. I keep gettin the notification like I'm getting attacked and stuff, but my comp is still running fineok. My biggest fear is that passwords would get stolen, but I'm not logging into anything on my comp that would require a password, besides this. At least here I can always change it, or contact Matt.

Smash, what anti-virus software do you have installed on your comp, and how/when did you get it?

If you can still get onto the internet without too much trouble, you're actually in much better shape than I thought, so you should be able to work it out.

I have AVG Anti Virus Free Edition. I've been using that for a while and it's been working... or was.
4 of the 7 features are working, the ones that aren't are the Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware, saying that they are outdated, so I should probably get an update...

Well, it also just so happens that with the update manager, the connection test failed, so I can't get an update, and when I try clicking on the link to www.avg.com I'm getting a page load error.
(The e-mail scanner, link scanner, resident shield and license are all active.)

Meanwhile, I keep getting this pop up saying that these infections have been found and Anti-Virus 09 in inactive and I should update that. I don't want to update that when I have the free one and even if I want to buy* Anti-Virus 09**, I'd have to enter in a credit card... I'm thinking that's not something smart to do at about now.

*but like everyone else, I'm a cheap bastard
**I still have it feeling it's fake and trying to rip me off

I know someone who claimed to have programmed a virus that made your CD player spin backwards, potentially causing your motherboard to catch fire. (This was the 90s.)

I DID, however, manage to take this when my computer was f-ed up:



I don't know what's up with the blotches at the top.

Technically, I made all the edits a few hours ago, so I think it was photobucket's doing.
