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. :)
