I'm Feeling Persecuted, Here!

Well, folks...Blogger, or Google, or someone or some THING has done it to me again! When I tried to access my blog, I got a notice saying that my query resembled an automated program, and that in order to protect their clients, my request must be denied for now, and that they would give me back my access as soon as possible, and they apoligised for any convenience! am I on here, now, you ask?

Well, I kept going to other blogs, and kept getting the same message, and couldn't access them, either. I couldn't access Guyk's blog, but I could access Sweet Thing. Many others, too, were denied my perusal. Finally, I hit on Dazd's blog, and clicked on my blog from his blogroll, and was able to access it from there. The thing I am wondering now, is whether or not when I try to publish this, I will be locked out again. As I write this, I could very well be just talking to myself! I am trying to find humor in this, to keep from crying!

I have no idea how to handle this...there is no way that I know of, of contacting them. It's like a one-way deal..they can contact me, and I have to wait for their decision, whatever that may be.

They did suggest that I run a spyware and a virus check, which I had just finished doing, before trying to access my blog. I do that on a regular basis and there is never a virus or a spy, and only an occasional adware, which is eliminated, immediately.

If anyone has any suggestions, I would certainly appreciate hearing them!

If I don't post for awhile, or ever, you'll know why!

Oh, Jan, that is terrible. I'm such a techno-dope and an even bigger blogger-not so I'll be of no help at all, but I hope someone will come to your rescue.

I don't know to help you..wish I could. I had some problems with the old blogger but it has been a while. You may have a trojan horse that you don't know might try to download the AGV protection..there is a free version that is pretty good and I use the bought one at 75 bucks or so a year but it is well worth it...better firewalls than anything I have found but just a little difficult for me to download and set up but if I can do it anyone can

rockync..your sympathy is appreciated, even if you can't help! LOL

Guyk..I don't know what the problem could be, but I really don't think it is a Trojan or spyware.

I have more security stuff on here than I know what to do with, including Norton and McAfee. I have Norton Internet, and Norton Antispyware and AntiVirus, and all my scans come out clean, except for an adware once in awhile.

Sometimes, I wonder if all the firewalls on here intervere with each other.

I scan on a regular basis, just to make sure that nothing is on here for awhile without my knowing it.

I guess it will work itself out, eventually. :)

Sorry, Jan. Don't let them get you down. Keep on keepin' on!!!

Jan said...

Frank Family..everything seems to be working okay, again, so I'm not going to fret about it! :)

You'll be amazed at what Norton and Macaffee miss. Download this program and run it weekly, I do and all my issues went away.
