Back in Business…For the Most Part

Well, it seems that things are looking up a little bit for the blog thanks to the heroic efforts of my buddy RC Concepcion.  After removing malicious code from over 1000 files, it seems that all of the nasty stuff is now gone.  But I do have a favor to ask from you, my blog readers.  First is, if you visited my blog on Friday and you are using a Windows-based machine, please make sure that you run a virus scan to check for any malware that might have infected your machine.  If you aren’t running any then let me suggest that you visit AVG and download their free anti-virus software.  It’s pretty solid and will find most all of the nasty bugs running around out there.  The second favor I am asking is that you notify my if you see any strange behavior on my page or as a result of visiting it.  It would have taken me a lot longer to find out that the blog was infected if it weren’t for emails that I received.  Thanks Len and Mike for the heads-up.  Your alert allowed me to get working on this problem much sooner.  If you do happen to see a problem with the blog, please send an email to admin (at symbol) photowalkpro.com 

Once again, a huge thanks to my buddy RC who, if you didn’t already know, teaches some kick butt classes on Kelby Training.  If you want to know more about Dreamweaver or creating a WordPress blog then you definitely need to check out his classes.  They are worth the price of admission.

  1. An alternative to AVG is Microsoft’s free antivirus:

  2. I thought it would be a nice idea to try AVG’s free anti-virus. What could be bad about it? Oh boy! After a solid day of unexpected shut downs and frightening warnings from Microsoft about averted disaster, I pulled the plug. I don’t know what was wrong, but for me, AVG was a very bad idea. Ed

    • I used AVG Free for several years on my Windows machine and never had any problems. That’s just one of the issues with windows is that there are so many things that can go wrong depending on what other software you have on your machine. I use McAffee now on my Wondows box because it comes free with my Comcast account.

  3. I personally was sick of computer issues with my hp so I purchased an imac and it has made my life so much easier. Good Luck!
