The Cure was worse than the Virus

Computers have become such a part of our lives that we can hardly live without them, it seems. A nasty virus hit my laptop last week and I finally had to take it to be cleared out. Little did I know the technition would clean out my entire hard drive causing me to lose everything except the data they saved and restored.
When my computer was returned to me, I had none of the Microsoft Office programs including Word. My printers don't work now and I am having a devil of a time trying to download drivers and get things going again. Hopefully Rebecca can help me get things back to normal in a few days.
Barry had Photoshop installed on this machine and now it is gone and I can't find any software to reload it.
Well, enough venting for now. I am thoroughly enjoying my assistant, Rebecca, who is staying with me this winter. She is a lovely young woman with an easy going manner that makes having her here a real joy for me. She likes helping others and is quite efficient.
Read her blog, Renaissance Rebecca, listed on the sidebar of Writers Circle.

Thanks, Tipper.
I hope I can somehow set it all aright soon.
At least I now can get to my email and to Word, but I'll have to do more to get my printers working with this computer.
