Even though we knew something was wrong with our computer,it was only after for a while we realized we needed to get our computer upgraded. It had been giving us a lot of problem lately. Subsequently we decided to send it to an experienced person,who detected the issue and rectified. It was discovered that too many viruses had invaded the computer and nastily crashed the whole system. This left me wondering who could have possibly pushed or encouraged these virtual microbes into our computer.
After a lot of evasive answers my sons eventually spilled the beans.The youngsters admitted they had downloaded some video games from some unreliable sites. I don’t know how this could have gone passed the ‘security mama’s' eyes. I have always advised them to stick to their regular game sites and have cautioned them to keep off sites that was not recommended. But somehow they had been lured in. Due to this unfortunate incident, I lost a large amount of my folders stored under my ‘documents’, as most of the data had being swallowed by the bugs. Apart from that, some important pictures which I had saved on the computer disappeared after we had the computer upgraded. Fortunately I had backup pictures saved on my Picasa account. Wasn't that some relief!
Many new innovations have surfaced in technology. Though I am not tech savvy, I am keen to learn new things about computers and everything about them. Thanks to the various articles and information I get via the internet. Just the other day a friend asked me If I had installed the blu ray burner on my computer.I was clueless.Later I gathered what it was all about.Blu ray disc is a video compressed technology very much comparable to a DVD.However,the quality of blu ray is much supreme with superior picture quality.More over, they have a good amount of storage than their counterpart DVD, allowing your storage to grow higher.And for someone who has just lost all the archives,it wouldn’t hurt too much if I consider installing a blu ray burner on my computer.
