Just follow the other instructions and try to keep safe until you can get a new computer with a REAL Windows operating system and not a pirated version.
That really is the only advice I can give you.

advice taken, whole-heartedly. full scan complete, one trojan was detected, which kaspersky has deleted. should I post that log here?

Honestly you would be better off taking the computer back to the guy who "fixed" it for you, HE caused all this.
I really have no more steps I can give you.
Print out all the logs to show him what HE caused. Ask for your $35 back too!

its too late for that, he's off to Bangalore. anyways, it seems i just have to be extra cautious about everything from now on. i'm doing a CCNA course ( you know, the one's from cisco) on top of my engineering. let's just hope it helps me buy a laptop soon enough.

right now, its 2:15 in the morning here in Kolkata, and going to "X-men First class" tomorrow in the noon show with the college gang. Really need a break from all these head-aches my computer is giving me. Maybe the movie will do some good. :)

Just be careful is all I can tell you. Save your money and get a new computer with LEGAL software on it and get the paper work to prove it!

even if he was here, i would bet anything that he wouldn't understand a word of those logs!!
