Last Sunday, Maria DelGiorno gave up. She unplugged her laptop PC and carefully placed it underneath a statue of the Virgin Mary.
“It was the only thing I could think of doing,” said the 67-year-old great-grandmother. “The computer was filled with filthy things. It was embarrassing. My grandchildren kept asking me why I was looking at so much pornography.”
On Tuesday, DelGiorno’s grandson retrieved the computer and examined it. With some help from a computer-savvy friend, Joe DelGiorno discovered that a browser-hijacking program called CoolWebSearch, also known as CWS, had turned his grandmother’s mild-mannered computer into a X X X-rated adventure.
Holy Water is another good sacramental for this problem. Pour enough on the computer and those problems will go away – along with everything else.
