I would be happy to respond.
I have ha many difficulties and would like to say something about them, and I hope they are not taken the wrong way like when I was disconnected during the middle of a post - then referrred to as a "hijacker" who leaves the site without responding". My computer has been infected for a very long time, and I did not know the exact problem because I was accustomed to CNET taking control, but it was getting out of hand and the person who had control of my computer would not identify themselves,, nor respond to any questions I asked.. This became a very fightening experience because one, I didn't know how they gained access, and it was very difficult to convince anyone around me that I was being manipulated, only to be ridiculed even further, but I needed help in the worst way.
I am afraid I cannot tell you what system I was running, because it became a ritual to change it two or three times a day, and I never knew who I was working with. I started out on Windows XP, then changed to Windows 7, It became urgent when all of my program were changing and I didn't get any response to a request for identification of the person who was in charge of my computer, and I knew I was in trouble then.
First let me say, I have been on CNET for over 5 years now, trust all of you implicitly, and I knew this was out of the realm of your behavior, I have since had the computer taken to a professional who had to completely start over with my operating system and installed Windows XP, which was not my request but the adamant insistance from my partner that I was "hearing voices" and seeing things that just were not there, so I gave in, crumbled like a crushed flower. I was so tired I could hardly function at this time, I had not been able to check my email for over a month because I could not regain control of my computer, and well..........you get the picture. I did not leave the discussion because it was my choice to do so, I had no choice at all, and frankly, was unsure of my next move, so I just sat back for a while to see what would happen. I had no problem the first night after the computer was returned from the shop, the second we were off to the races again. I am still unsure of what was CNET's help, and what was the intruder. Then my sister passed away, and I needed files to access for her and I received no mercy from the intruder.
I am not saying any of this so you will feel sorry for me or excuse me or anything,like that, only realize that I tried, and tried but when I finally replied to this blog, I went to a lot of trouble going into minute details so someone might be able to help me only to have it disappear on the last word of the post.
If you still think I am a direspectful "hijacker", I am sorry for this, but I know I have not been treated fairly, and I want to reiterate, I TRUST CNET, this has been the work of a rogue, who is still yet unknown.
I apologize for any questions or confusion, but perhaps this will help to bring some comments to a rest. Or perhaps you will find that I reallly do not belong here, which is the first comment I receIved while posting the first time, but I need to air the truth, as I know it to date, and ask that you please be patient until I can get this figured out, and am asking for assistance from professionals again. In the meantime, I have found it diffiicult to risk trying to post on this forum.with any certainty that it will appear as I typed it.
Take this however you wish, but I want to say one more time, I know this was not the work of CNET, but an outsider, and I sincerely apologize to anyone who was uncertain of my motives. They have always been to learn, to assist, and to be grateful and I would hope my record would speak for me.
Sincerely and with my very best regards to all posters,
