Viruses and Veela.

Do any of you know a lot (or a little) about computers/viruses, etc?

I received the following, which I find hard to believe for some reason, and am at loss of what to do.


Your email address was in my address book hence the following should
apply:

My computer has received a virus since you are in my address book, there
is a good chance you will find this virus in your computer too. The virus
(called jdbgmgr.exe) is not detected by Norton or McAcAfee antivirus
system (which I have, which did not stop it). This supposedly sits
quietly for 14 days before damaging the system.
It is sent automatically by messenger and by the address book, whether
or not you sent email to your ontacts. I checked my computer and found
it here. Here's how to check the virus and how to get rid of it:

YOU MUST DO THIS:


1. Go to Start, Find or Search option.

2. In the folder option, type the name jdbgmgr.exe

3. Be sure you search your C: drive and all subfolders and any other
drives you may have

4. Click "find now"

5. The virus has a Teddy bear icon with the name jdbgmgr.exe DO NOT
OPEN IT!

6. Go to Edit(on the menu bar) and choose "Select All" to highlight
thefile without opening it.

7. Now go to File (on the menu bar) and select Delete. It will then
go to the Recycle Bin. Then click on "Empty Recycle Bin".

8. IF YOU FIND THE VIRUS YOU MUST CONTACT ALL THE PEOPLE IN YOUR
ADDRESS BOOK, SO THEY CAN ERADICATE IT IN THIER OWN ADDRESS BOOKS.

9. To do this:

a) Open a new email message

b) Click the icon of the address book next to the "TO"

c) Highlight every name and add to "BCC"(which means blind copy)

d) Copy this message and paste to email

e) Send the message.


Of course, I found the little bear, but I thought, isn’t it possible that the “virus” could be just to get us to delete something important? Has anyone else gotten this message? Or does anyone have any advice on whether I should ignore it or follow the instructions?

I do not wish to harm my computer.

Finally! Finished the first scene of the first part of my pride and joy wee story. I cannot believe it took such a long time. I am so very pleased that is over with at long last. It was fun, but that fucker took a lot out of me.

Now, I don’t know about its quality, but the first draft is there, at least.

I think I will have a much better time with it now that that section is out of the way. I have a feeling I may have taken it quickly, introduced too much information at one time. But! I shall see.

I really have awful luck with the betas on the veela-inc list. I write to them all friendly-like. They write back all-friendly-like.

Everything is friendly. I ask for a beta, the beta accepts and gives an approximate turnaround time, and says “Send it on down!” So, I do.

Then I never hear from them again. It’s happened twice—or thrice? I don’t recall, since it was so long ago.

I wrote back to one, asking (all friendly-like) what the deal was. Were they alive and well? No reply.

No more veela-inc betas. I have five stories sitting on my computer, never been posted anywhere.

I don’t like the word “boobies” anyway. It’s disgusting. :D

It's a hoax. That's an actual Windows file.

Well, thank you for that. :D

BOOBIES! Embrace the word, love it for it loves you.

And all that junk.

Boobies..

:D!! *runs away*

*shakes fist*

Arg. When the time comes that I embrace "boobies" I will shoot myself. Or at least give myself a good spanking.

*trips you* Ha. :D

You won't even embrace your own boobies?

Or have you been a man all along?!

Excuse me I must go now, mummy says I can't talk to strange boys on the computer. Much <3!

Spanking? = Kinky!

*trips you*

You are so mean! *cries*

:D

Naw, I just don't like the word boobies.

You are so mean! *cries*

*points and laughs* :)

Hmm, you know, I don't really like the word either. I don't even like the word breasts that much. *shrugs* Eh, oh well.

*laughs with you* :D

Would you be interested in a non-veela beta? I've got experience, and lots of time these days, and am fairly good at it, or at least that's what people tell me.

Yes, I'd be very interested. Though, that would depend on whether you'd be interested in a Harry/Draco. :D

*grin* This is me, of course I'd be interested. Seamus/Dean may be the primary residents of my heart, but Harry and Draco definitely have their own little corner of it.

Send anything you want me to look at to nightmare_poet@yahoo.com

:)

Thank you very much! :D

Omfg. XD.

That's actually the JAVA engine, if I remember correctly. The first time I saw it, my Dad was in the room and I read it allowed and he just looked at me and burst out laughing. So yes. It is a hoax.

Thanks. Some people are not nice.

But you are nice for telling me that. *nods*

*is jealous of misscora* You didn't ask me to beta? *sniffle* You know how much I love you and your writing and esp. your Harry/Draco writing... *sniffles more*

Just for that....

BOOBIES!

*goes off to pout*

I didn't know! I didn't want to impose, you silly goose! >:O

Just for that 'BOOBIES,' I'm making you beta for me in the future (heh heh), and you're going to send me your work anytime you happen to want a beta (because I said so). So there.

Ha. :D

Unless, of course, you don't want me to.... *sulks*




Natt, I have one thing to say to you. (No, not boobies. *wink*)

DUH!!!

I thought I told you a few times at least that I would love to help you out and beta stuff for you!!! It's not imposing. It's feeding my craving for Natt!fics!!! You know I love your writing.

I promise that I will send most everything to you beforehand for betaing. (Tho I prolly won't send the CLM challenges b/c I usually don't have those betaed... I just post 'em.) The only two things I never let anyone read before they're posted are new Voices and Opposites chapters. I'm (for some reason) really protective of those. *shrug* But everything else I'll send to you. *grin* And you'd better utilize your new beta, like, RIGHT AWAY!!! (esp since you said you have what, 5 things you need betaed? SEND NOW!!! ME WANT READ!)

*ahem*

Yes. Sounds good. And if saying that word gets me more things to beta, well then...

Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies! Boobies!


Boobies!

No more boobies!

You mock my pain.

Just because you tell me you like my writing does not put the thought into my head that I am welcome to pile things into your inbox. *bows head* Bad Natt.

*nods* Understandable about the CLM challenges. Challenges are...challenges, after all. I think it should be all the author and no one else. And we all have a right to be protective over something! :D

So, yes. I shall utilize you Katie. Later today, or perhaps tomorrow. I need to straighten out some things! Yep.

I have a new e-mail by the way (juju_askew@yahoo.com), but you'd have figured it out once I piled a couple things into your inbox. (;D) And don't hesitate to pile a couple (or a few or several) things into mine in the future, or now, or whenever.

*adds your new addy* are you not using ru_av_natten anymore? B/c I can just delete that altogether and all.

And fill my inbox all you want. I LOVE email! *grin* Esp. when it's fabulous Natt!fics!

Yay for incoming Nattmail! *grin*

*does the I'm-gonna-beta-for-Natt dance*

Nope, not using thev ru_av_natten address anymore. That domain stalls my incoming messages or something. It takes hours, sometimes a full day, for me to get a message. Not good. So, switched to yahoo.

:D

right then. deleting that address... So I assume you didn't get the official update email, then, b/c that's where I sent it.

Oh, yes, I received it (I check back every few days, just in case). Didn't read it because I had already read the chapter after you posted about it in your LJ. And I will be voting soon, too.
