I'm back and spyware free

I'm sorry i haven't been able to update my blog or review some of my visitors blogs because i just got back online today. I'm sure many of you are wondering what happened. Well, this laptop got infected with spy ware and i couldn't get rid of it. To make a long story short i ended up having to pay $100.00 to Norton online virus/spy ware services to have it fixed but its all good now. I'm so happy and now this pc is finally virus free once again and i can finally get back to doing some work. I learned a lot of lessons and if i was to offer my readers some tips, the most important one i would offer is this: Always read the License Agreement carefully before installing any software from the Internet. Usually free software's or sharewares are associated with viruses. These software's appear to be legitimate, but in fact they are related to viruses/spy wares. Typical examples are 'Winfixer', 'Win Antivirus' etc. These are tips that Norton's online chat service sent to me directly. Avoid clicking on any Advertisement Pop ups on the Internet. They are mostly related to Adware & Spyware. So that's it for now.
