now is not the time for this
not that there's ever a time for this, but my laptop died.
I was stupid and downloading any program I could find/try to create a slideshow from the Community breakfast my church had this morning. I noticed my laptop was lagging, so i go to restart it and when it comes up, I get my regular welcome screen, so I log in...only there's no desktop! It's a completely black screen! When I press the windows key, nothing happens!
Only something does happen. Some system clean up pops up and twice I canceled it (to have to restart my laptop), so this time I let it go through. It then says it found over 2000 threats and the only way to deal with it is to register for the full clean up...only to do that I have to pay like $25! Uhh no!
But I click okay, then by some fluke, a browser opens up for me to pay to get this full clean up. But I don't have the money. so I had to bring up the task manager to force that clean up to close.
I still have my browser open, but nothing else. I'm really scared to restart my laptop in case the same thing happens.
This is my damn life! UGH
Anyone know how I can get my OS back or whatever? If so, please please let me know! I don't want to have lost my pictures and music. Thankfully my writing (and some other pictures) is saved to a flash drive and google docs!
