Wow. Suddenly all the documents, and some programs on the Windows network at work were garbledee-gook. We shut down everything, disconnected from the server and internet, and called a specialist. CRYPTO-VIRUS! shocked
Luckily, only one machine (Where it originated) was really hit hard, the rest were fixed fairly quickly, because we unplugged everything.
Management will be having a talk with the secretary tomorrow…

P.S. It wasn't my fault! laugh

Smarty pants.
As a matter of fact, that's why I pulled the plug on everything. I didn't remember where I heard of it, but I should have known it was you! laugh
We have had all kinds of virus warnings and cleanings, but this was the first that brought the house down.
Scary…
(Hugs my Mac). cool

I'm not saying it's ALL her fault, but… It's where the virus originated. She is 19yo, surfing, twittering, FBing, Instagraming, Flikring, Vineing, Downloading, and whatever else 19 year olds do on the web, instead of working. I'm not the boss, so it's not my place to say anything. Five computers could be saved, hers needs to be wiped clean, or replaced.
I'll know mare in a while…
