Computer Meltdown Thwarts Start

Cindy: So, my plan to get up at 6:30 to knock one deadline out of the way by 9, came to a screeching halt when I discovered that my 11-year-old had downloaded some godawful spyware, virusy something or another. I’ve got loads of protections etc., yet still, if I let him use my computer I get some kind of HORRIBLE something. Thankfully, my tech support left his office and came to my rescue. And then he stayed and cooked me breakfast.

Question: When did you last get knocked offline from your home computer by a virus or some other malfunction?
