I haven't been posting much lately because I have been battling computer problems. I did a virus scan on the online McAfee free scan because my virus scan is so out of date, and it found a virus on my computer! I had to go and buy new AntiVirus software for my computer. I did a full system scan and it found four different types of threats on my computer. They hadn't been there long though. Also, They weren't really considered "viruses". I'm not completely sure what they were - all I know is that it is something called Spyware or Adware threats. I think they could possibly allow attackers to get information off your computer. I'm not sure what else they can do. But I got rid of them and my computer is now officially virus and threat free. I'm not sure how they got onto my computer in the first place. That's what bugs me. But it sure put a scare into me.
