TQC, is my house some sort of electronics killer?
Issue #1: Last night, my TV decided to lose sound. The picture is fine, but there's no sound at all. I checked all of the connections, even switched out the TVs, the cable box and all of the cables. There's picture but no sound in our living room, but everything works normally in our back room. There's not even sound when I play a DVD.
What the heck is wrong??? I'm having the cable guy out today but I am not confident that they will be able to fix it.
Issue #2: My home computer keeps getting some weird virus/spyware. When I search in Google or Yahoo, each search result takes me to some sort of ad page. Yesterday, it even prevented us from opening Add/Remove programs. We've had to completely wipe the computer 3 times in the past month or so. We use AVG. Personally, I blame porn sites. What's the worst virus you've gotten and what virus/spyware protection do you use?
TIA for your input, everyone! I missed Project Runway last night and I'm feeling quite cranky.
