Tuesday afternoon I got the callback from Geek Squad.
"Come on out, your computer's ready."
I didn't realize how naked I feel without a computer. Luckily I have a friend who generously loaned me her computer during times when she didn't need it.
I drove to Best Buy and tested the computer out first. Virus -- gone. Computer -- back to normal. It doesn't appear that I lost anything. The computer runs like new, which is good because it more or less is new.
That's one thing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
