Spam and the Silly

So incase anyone at all has been wondering where I disapeared to, my computer totally crashed. Some viruses completely took over to the point where it was inpossible to open the internet. My mother took our computer to her brother's house who is good with computers and apparently we had hundreds of bugs! Turns out website that I had been visiting (and even on in my favourites!) had been giving us cookies which is why we had been getting popups. What was the most shocking is that he found one website in my favourites was actually a pornography site! I am really disturbed and will definetly have to be more careful. He didn't remember the name of the site, but it was girly and had the work "designer" in it...which leads me to beleive that it may have been the website, but I cannot be sure. I guess I was too naive. Now my mother won't let me use her computer to scour through all the fashion sites so I'll have to do it on my laptop (which is realllllly realllly slow, and the internet connection hasn't been working). Needless to say, this sucks. Fashion is my passion and I LOVE to shop online and work Polyvore and Blogger and visit stores online, but now I don't really trust them. Has anyone else had any problems with viruses and popups? What websites are safe and how do we know that they aren't just a fake website cover that is actually spamming you and pretending to be respectable while it is actually a secret nasty site? Ughh. I don't understand all these sickos who waste time making viruses just to hurt other people they don't even know. They just make me feel uncomfortable and silly.

On a cheerier note (if that is infact a word), this is my 50th post on this blog! Happy 50 everyone and be safe in your surfing!

PS. This is going to take me forever to read all the blog posts I missed reading all these days!!
