Wow it is actually cold out there.  Like twenty below cold.  I know!  Who'd a thunk it.  Last winter I don't think the temperature got more than minus ten, maybe fifteen but it would have only been for all of fifteen minutes.  We also got some more snow today.  I know!  It is almost like it's winter or something.  If this keeps up I may actually have to pull out a pair of snow shoes and go walking on the lake, and through the bush with the things on.  And I'm so out of shape right now that it could mean all kinds of paining things will happen to my muscles.  I know! 

So Babylon Search, and Claro Search still continues to haunt my computer.  I've been trying out a few different things to try and rid myself of them/it but so far to no avail.  If I have to take my computer in to have it debugged I will not be a happy camper.  Arrrrgggghhhhhhh.  So in the meantime I have downloaded Firefox and have started to transfer a bunch of favourites over to it. 

Today started out kind of crappy, I had my very first writer's group meeting happening in Lunenburg at 10am, I was just going to go out and start my vehicle when I got an email telling me the meeting was cancelled because of weather.  I can only assume the weather was a lot worse there than here because here it wasn't anything to write home about.  The hubby, bless his pointy little head, when up into the attic and insulated the shit out of it.  Have I mentioned how much I love the hubby?  If I haven't I will state it again, I love my hubby.  He is marvelous at doing all those shitty kinds of jobs.  (Insulation is one of those things I try to avoid at every possible juncture.  I had a bad experience with it many years ago and to this day it gives me the heebie-jeebies.)  So while he was doing that I figured I would get all Dora Domestica in his face and made him a bunch of stuff I knew that he would like.  Like biscuits, and baked chicken, and lumpy potatoes...and home made oatmeal, chocolate chip cookies.  It took me all freakin day.  And as usual with Dora chores it felt as if I didn't get anything accomplished by the end of the day. 

Did I mention how much I hate the Babylon Search piece of crap? 

Now I am sitting here writing in my blog, which I usually like to do, but all I can think of is that stupid Babylon and it is taking all the fun out of it.  Grrrrr.  


  1. If you have not grabbed it yet the one-two punch I use with Malware crap is my Virus Scanner (I still use AVG and haven't had problems) *and* Malwarebytes Anti-malware. It has been *very very* useful in wiping out scum sucking rat bastard programs that have snuck on to my machine. If you ever run into a really problematic thingamajig (I did once) I also grabbed Spybot's *Search and Destroy* but with that baby you have to be pretty careful. Anyhow...if you hain't got it I strongly recommend you grab the MalwareBytes program. It's a good un.

  2. So I downloaded Malwarebytes and ran a scan, it picked up 57 items but all of them were from something called Funmoods...whatever that is. It didn't say anything about Babylon (which is still here.) I downloaded Firefox and am currently using that as my search far so good. I managed to get rid of all the Babylon/Claro except what is on my C drive, that refuses to Uninstall. I don't like it there but it doesn't seem to be doing anything bad...that I can see.
