Just so people know, there was a reason I kinda disappeared for two days... I had computer problems for a few days that forced me to have to re-install Windows and start fresh.
I think somehow I managed a virus or something. Something through YouTube I guess- not sure how it snagged onto my hard drive. But it started making my computer act funny. For example, I had weird webpages pop up, and I had a weird incident with eBay and PayPal, which I know would NEVER ask for personal information as my brother-in-law works for eBay as a programmer.
It drove me nutsy not being able to use my computer. Only one little flaw in the slaw left, but things are back to normal.
