    Yesterday I bought a new laptop. I am glad I did because my grandson came over and visited a gaming sight last night and now I have a virus on my desktop PC. You know, the FBI one. The one that prompts you to pay with a credit card so they can fix it. My PC is completely dead and if I ever get my hands on a hacker I am going to break his fingers and his computer. So I am typing on this laptop and it's alright. I am starting a mens Bible study in January and this laptop will enable me to use my notes quickly and I can refer to Bible scripture fast. Also, since I will be in the Bible study class I can pray for the hacker that got me. I pray that Jesus finds him before I do.

    I am glad I have a fiend that is a computer tech so now my question to all is this. How many holes should my grandson dig outside for infecting my computer? This is not the first time that he has crashed our computers and he is a genius and knows exactly what he is doing. He is in for a rude awakening when he comes back over because I am going to have a bill for him to work off. He has never had a blister on his hand but I will take care of that.

    Thoughts?

    How many do you need? I'd say probably twice that.

    I like the way you think. Maybe some rocky soil too.

    I say you only need one hole. trouble is, will it be in the right spot? (Cool Hand Luke reference)

    my boys know what the wrath of Dad is like. t2s saw a small tiny taste of it yesterday. God help them if they do something bad and they know it.

    That's a tough one Jim. Depending on the size, 5 should teach him a lesson.

    I'd say deep enough to bury all of your pink outfits.....but that might take an excavator!

    Or, what us naughty kids did here is have to move a massive piece of wood usually like 200 pounds from the front to back yard or across the property so many times.That thing was not round either, it was square. No wonder I had muscles and a six pack by the time I went to high school. lol

    In the kids defense he might not have done anything wrong.

    A lot of this stuff resides in ad's on web sites. The best thing to help curb this is to run firefox or chrome and download the AdBlock + add in. http://adblockplus.org/en/

    This nifty little addin blocks almost 99% of adds on web sites.

    Thanks for the advice tango. I am giving him the benefit of the doubt, but this always happens after he leaves. He just needs to bring his own computer over from now on.

    Just got mine out of the shop, $110 for the repair, but that's a lot cheaper than a new computer. It can happen to anyone. My computer is pass word protected. If you don't know the pass word, you don't get to use it! If he knows what he's doing, and you wind up in this spot every time he gets on yours, then I personally wouldn't think about giving him the benefit of the doubt. He needs blisters alright, but not on his hands!

    Jim one of the biggest things is he really didnt go looking to infect your computer but I do agree with the tuning up a person that writes the virus. My wifes cousin is a computer genius and I asked him why these people write the virus. His answer was because they can. I know myself if I had that type of knowledge I surely wouldnt waste the time to write a virus and destroy peoples property. I know many people that only have one computer and their kids do home work on then, The family uses them for entertainment and for reference work. If their computer became infected they wouldnt have the financial means to correct the situation. It really sucks that these people get away with it. Please be easy on the kid as i know you will.
