Ugh... last night my laptop got infected with a virus.  

I was poking around the internet and all the sudden a weird screen flashed on for a mili-second, and then I got this bogus screen saying something about the FBI was watching my computer because of possible copyright infringement, child pornography, or some other fake reasons.  

I pressed the escape key and every other key in an effort to free up my computer but it didn't work.  I couldn't reboot, restart, or even power down the normal way.  I pushed and held the power button until the laptop shut off.  When I restarted it I got the same bogus FBI screen.

So I had to take it to the repair shop today.  I begged and pleaded with them to rush it since the thought of being without a computer at home is frightening to me in all honesty, but from my explanation of the issue they doubted they would have it done today.

So I will cross my fingers they will be able to fix it tomorrow and that it won't cost too much.
