Warning: My Computer Has Been Infected With Trovi, a Browser Hijacker

Apparently when I opened a blog (for the first time), it was infected with this Browser Hijacker.  I got a message that said “you must install “Flash Player” in order to run this program”.  I believed it and began the installation.  That’s how this malware got into my computer.  So you may get some similar “instructions”  like “You must install Java”….. DO NOT INSTALL.  I guess we need to read the whole licensing agreement and ask for the custom install so we can direct that such unintended programs (like trovi.com) don’t get installed with it.  I’m working on removing it now, but wanted to warn you first.  It affects your tabs and sends constant irritating ads that are difficult to close.

About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
