Today, my grandpa actually believed a "hot 19 year-old" lived "only 10 miles away" and was "desperate to meet him." Our family laptop with the backups of all our childhood photos and videos is now infected with the worst virus I've ever seen, and may require factory resetting or just scrapping. FML

Back up the data you want to keep. Scan the backup from a clean machine. Wipe and reimagined the laptop. Teach Grandpa about click bait...

just factory resetting, not scrapping... but honestly now you've learned your lesson. Don't keep all your files in 1 place, deffo not on a shared laptop. get an external hard drive that only gets connected to a PC when those files need to be accessed and make a backup of your backup if it's THAT important.

Ask him to stop being a perve

Always make backups of important files. Your laptop’s HDD/SSD might as well just have given up the ghost on its own. Keep ideally have backups multiple places and something off-site. Cloud memory is cheap if it’s just some pictures and it’s safe even if your house burns down.
