Your fiance is a man. And he expects a woman who has no knowledge of computers to fix it?

Honey, you need to reassess this relationship. Do you really want to be with a guy who can't do something like learn and fix it himself? It's going to be a drain on you for the rest of your life helping out your manbaby husband.


Oh come on gender roles really now lol

Backup everything you need to save and format the whole thing.

Also, it would be a virus, not a hacker. He spends too much time on shady porn sites.


He actually doesn't do porn which is why it has to be a hacker.

If I get rid of his access he won't be able to come in anymore and slow down his computer.


No sweetheart, he's absolutely 100% lying to you. Every single man on the planet does porn. He told you it's a hacker and you're naive enough to think your fiance is important enough to be the victim of a targeted attack. I realize I'm a random person in a random place but think back to this message when things fall apart. I'm sorry.


With all due respect, I think I know him a little bit better than you do.


LOL, the dude's right. Unless your hubby is an important political figure, CEO or just rich, there is no way he got hacked. If you don't believe us, ask him who he thinks hacked him and why.

I'm not trying to troll you, honestly. But when it comes to something so small like incriminating himself over the use of porn and asking YOU specifically to fix it, that's a red flag.

Because what happens when a larger issue arises that he can't fix? Is he going to ask you to do it? What happens if there's a secret / issue much larger than something stupid like porn? Will he smoke screen you again or displace his blame? It could stem from finances, debt, adultery, etc.

Just saying. That's my last message on the thread regarding that, but something strikes me odd about this situation. It may not be anything in the end but it is without a doubt a reason to think.

Well hes currently unemployed which is why he's asking me to do it for him.

So he's definitely not a rich CEO, but you don't have to know a hacker to be hacked by them.

Anyway he's not the type to lie so if that's what he says then I believe him, and have no reason not to.

Anyway.....


Thanks for the help!

Wow. He sounds like a real catch. You should marry him.

He's just asking me to fix it because I'm the one who is funding us right now.

He doesn't have any source of income.
It's not like he can't do anything by himself.

Not all guys watch porn. Whenever I get a girlfriend I stop, why should I need porn when I have the real thing? I was with my last girlfriend for over two years and the only time I watched porn was with her in our first few months. Just because you're a guy doesn't mean you know everything.

Also, my friend got hacked. Though it was because he was stupid enough to put his information into a pop up, but still. People get hacked every day.

That being said, it's highly unlikely. There's a larger chance that he got a virus from clicking "download" on a fake download button for am mp3 or some torrent site.

He doesn't torrent but I get your point.

It could be anything realistically speaking.
