So today is not one I want to repeat. I haven’t slept a wink in 19 hours. Why you might ask? Hmmm, well I decided to mess up my laptop and make it unuseable till 9 am this morning when my dad could open the back of it up and could take out the 2nd hard drive and I could go through the F-U-N that is a system recovery. All because a tech told me over email last night that was the only way to get rid of a program that wasn’t uninstalling itself and was completely undeletable and unusable.
Can we just say NEVER EVER again.
Brief panic after the hour spent recovering to find out, erm where are my files? Could have lost 13,000 but they were thankfully backed up and I didnt lose my captured video on the second hard drive. (big sigh of relief!!)
So I’ve spent the last 8 hours since it finally was bootable updating windows (all 64 updates thank you very much), reinstalling norton, reboot, nero, reboot, my trial version of office and oh guess what? The problem that caused it all?
IT’S STILL HERE.
Lesson learned. Ignore pain in the arse programs and live in oblivion. :o) Saves your sanity.
At least, it happened yesterday/today and not today/tomorrow. Not how I plan on spending my 27th b-day!!
