I know we're not supposed to have to worry about these things. BUT ever since I downloaded an attached photo from someone I trusetd, my computer's been slower or stopped.

I found the new Safari 5 and that helped for a while, but things are just not right. Too slow. other odd things.

I haven't tried to attach a photo to a yahoo email yet, since I uploaded the Safari 5. What happened a week ago was that the photo would finish attaching, then when I clicked, my screen would blink, but nothing would happen. I could move the cursor, but couldn't click anything.

I would turn off the computer by holding down the button on the back of the machine.

Ah, well, I'll post this, and just for fun (??) go see if that happens again.

Could I have picked up the Conflicker worm? That's a frightening thing, I've been reading about it lately.
