attacked

My old, reliable laptop acquired a virus. My first reaction was that of disbelief since I do have antivirus in place. And then came anger. Right now I am just plain frustrated. I don't know what to do. I snapped at the husband earlier like it was his fault when he was just trying to help. Reformat came to mind so I dug through our records and looked for the recovery CD but I could not find it. Either the computer did not come with a recovery disc or the husband and the stepson used it to reformat his computer a long time ago and they misplaced it like they always do. Whatever the case, I cannot reformat my computer. I emailed customer support and hope that they will have answers to my questions tomorrow. Thankfully I do have a spare laptop which I did not use (I do now) because I am sharing the charger with the husband. His got fried when it got hit by lightning. We have to think of a course of action tomorrow whether to buy another charger for his laptop or try to save the old laptop by ordering a recovery CD for it. It will all depend on whether or not we will have money to spare. My major concern right now is what if it was a trojan virus and stole all our personal information? I am effed!
