After many frustrating moments on our computer I've finally accepted the fact that it's definitely been compromised.
A few months ago, I bet it was in late Spring, I clicked on a how-to video on a blog I regularly visit. Instantaneously my computer went berserk, downloading all sorts of things. We tried home remedies but slowly, slowly, over the weeks, it became bogged down and crashed the day before we moved from CT. It probably would have been smarter to take it to a repair shop soon after the incident, but we didn't.
So while our children and I were in Utah for our extended stay, Matt took the hard drive in (at this point it would turn on but we'd only ever get a black screen) to have it rebuilt and hopefully save some of our stuff.
Well they saved it, but many of our functions are gone. I've looked for answers on the internet and tried them, but I can't restore cut/copy and paste. What a pain. I never realized how often I use them. That's why for a while I wasn't able to control where pictures were placed on the blog.
Now when I post, it's usually from our laptop, so I can cut and paste to my heart's delight.
