Well, I sit here at work broken-hearted.... I played no DDO this weekend due to an invasion of my computer.... I was taking a break to eat lunch and had been pestered about re-opening a Myspace account by countless friends and family... so, after I ate my lunch, I thought I would open a new Myspace account.... I worked quickly, and in no time, I had verified my email account and started inviting old contacts back to Myspace page.... Next thing I know; pop-ups, lag spikes, and all kinds of other hell started breaking loose.... I sprang into action, activating spyware & virus programs to no avail.... My computer is now a not-so-expensive paperweight that needs an entire new motherboard, harddrive, and DvD drive... I might as well update the antiquated graphic card I've been using as well....

I just needed to post this so that those of you who know me in-game on Khyber will know and understand what happened...

BTW- it just kinda figures... I just paid for a 3 month subscription.... Blechhh.... :(

OUCH! :eek:

Sorry to hear about that.

Good luck.

I hope you get up and running again soon.

How does a Myspace account destroy your DVD drive? I've used MySpace for years and have never had any problems. Just don't click on those stupid spyware links and virus videos!
