What FHN posted was what I came across a few weeks ago. I was trying to access a needlework website that I had received an email from a hobby mailing list.....one whose program had been taken off cable (DIY) but the host said she was now appearing on another channel.....and then I got zapped by this other mess and could NOT get out of the page no matter what I did. Hubby has all sorts of bells and whistles that I have no clue how to use....and he was able to eradicate it after a few minutes. He told me not to click on that site again.....so I wonder if the needlework program will actually be coming back on the air....or if it was all a hoax (for lack of a better word) designed to get people to click on this virus-infected site.
I admit, I am rather naive in a lot of things....but I have to wonder WHY some people spend so much time and effort to make other people's lives so miserable like this?
