If I disappear.....

I just had a momentary 'red screen of death' on my computer that wanted me to call the number stated and pay the ransom for 'unlocking my computer'.  I immediately shut it down and when I re-started it seems to have sorted itself.  BUT.....if I happen to disappear from here, don't be concerned!  

Fingers are crossed.....

Oh my, I would never ever want you to disappear, my friend :) I hope your computer is all better and you don't have any more "issues."

Enjoy your Sunday! Hugs

The same thing happened to me. I did the same thing and shut down - after my husband suggested it. Once I booted up again, everything was OK. It was scary.

Oh my goodness. Not only do they wake you up from deep slumber but they have found your computer. Please don't vanish from my radar....I would miss you and all your gorgeous makes.

So glad you were able to save your computer! I had the same thing happen to me. Hubs had me shut it down, too and that saved all.

That's crazy! Hope that doesn't happen again.
