Today, I'm in a giddy mood - and it's 5:19 am! I have run dozens of malware "seek and destroy" programs pver the last two week. At first, they were all finding problems, but now, only Kaspersky's Virus Removal Tool is still finding threats. Because Kaspersky takes at least six hours to run, I've been running it overnight. Unfortunately, it hangs up after it finishes and sits for hours ater I awaken. I was finally able today to print the log to give to my Malwaretips guru.
This ordeal - to find all malware and remove it - is getting old. Yesterday, I started getting redirected again, even after a cleanse with Kaspersky Tuesday overnight, so I ran the tool all night again last night. It found 192 threats. Theoretically, it deleted them. We'll see. I believe I'm going to purchase the Kaspersky suite of products. Trend Micro Security, which used to have a #1 rating, failed me completely (I think).
This is one of those Fridays when I'm totally relieved the work week is over. I'll run more software over the weekend. If I can't clean my computer once and for all, I'm going to start the final process before re-imaging by uninstalling Firefox and re-installing it. It can't hurt!
This has been a slow beauty week for me. With all the time I've spent on my computer, I've had no time to go play at beauty counters. I understand Chanel's Les Beiges samples arrived at Neiman Marcus this week, so I must pop over and pick them up tomorrow. Also, I want to see if the new Clé de Peau Beauté Extra Rich Lipsticks arrived.
It's time for the Friday Forum. I love this part of our week. What new products did you discover this week? Did you find any deals you couldn't resist? Are you using a fabulous product and want to sing its praises? Did you find a beauty product disappointing? Do you have a question others might be able to answer? Want to talk about skin care? What's new in your life? Just use the comments. Don't be shy. Just make sure to ask any question you might have over the weekend. By early the next week, most (not all) readers will have moved on.
Don't forget this week's fabulous giveaway contest. Bobbi Brown's Eyes & Cheeks to Go is a really nice set. The deadline for entries is tomorrow, Saturday, July 27 at midnight. Good luck!
