I've got a stupid virus in my computer. (Yep, again.) It's affecting my mouse. I know I need to dump my ie files but don't know how to manage that without a working mouse. Any ideas? Or anybody know what else I can do to get this problem fixed?

I'm using a different computer today just to post this. (But this is why I'm not doing a lot of posting these days. It's too hard!) And, if you've emailed me and I haven't responded, that's why. It's such a pain without a working mouse. I assume I have a virus in the inbox that came attached to an email, too. I figured that out when I got a message saying MY message could not be delivered after 4 hrs--and it wasn't anything I had sent, but an email with a dat file attached. Those are never good, are they? Those and att files. You see those on an email, do NOT click on the pic or email.

I wonder...what sick little mind came up with the virus/worm stuff that messes up home pc's? I mean...apply your puppy brain to a way to hack into the credit company computers to wipe out debts or something. Do something good with that talent. Shut down communist and socialist computers on the other side of the world. But leave us regular folks out of your demented little plan to screw up the world.

You'd think these sort of things would be caught going out through a server, and the originting perpetrators would be stopped.

In my Dream Account, I'm on day 145 of this year, so I'm depositing $145,000 dream dollars. I'm gonna spend it all on furniture. I'm gonna invest in many antiques, and if I have to, I'll use part of the cash to fly to Christie's or Sotheby's to spend that money. Surely, if I search the country for things I like, I can spend that sort of cash in no time flat. I'm gonna get a cool real crystal chandelier. (I'll obviously spend tomorrow's money in prepaying a maid to clean the thing, but hey, when you're working with dream cash, you can afford anything. It just keeps rolling in.)

What would you spend $145k on?

I don't know how to do that without a mouse. I've tried to figure it out, but I keep coming up blank.

My brother took a computer programming class in high school. One of their requirements?

To make a computer virus.

A lot of people keep them on a disc and bring it out for novelty purposes/demonstrations (my brother had to show the high school principal how it worked and how he could disable it). Some release them on the web. My brother destroyed his a few years ago.

Why aren't you investing in a new computer with some of your money? That's what I would do and at the same time convert my spare bedroom into bookshelves and a long counter to hold my computer
