The great irony is that I was trying to buy a new package to re-up my virus protections last week, because I'd expired, but ended up cancelling the order because I was trying to download online, and the @$#%! Earthlink server kept booting me out halfway through the download. I ended up canceling, and haven't gotten around to reordering a physical copy.
So, I just logged out, turned off the computer, and maybe I'll deal with it all sometime in December, if I don't get it done on the weekend (not likely---I'm already double-booked for most of my time). I don't have time to screw with this.
Thank gods I do most of my real work on the laptop, now, which does not connect to the internet and never will, if I have any say. Everyone should have an isolated system.
