This. Unless he's ****ed your BIOS too (which I highly doubt) just borrow an install disc off someone, then put your laptop's serial number into the activation code thing (you'll find it by the barcode on the bottom of the machine, or in the battery enclosure)

edit nvm

1) check to see if they gave you a Repair/OS disk with your laptop
2)If so reinstall windows, if not see below
3)go to friends house who worked on the laptop
4)punch friend in the face
5)repeat 3-4 until he pays

Seriously though get your friend to buy you a new Windows 7 OS, and never let him work on it again. Formatting a system is the last option you should ever resort to, there are plenty of tools and ways to get ride of viruses it more then likely shouldn't have been done.

If you don't have the installation disk that came with your system try calling Microsoft and explaining to them that you can't find the install disk (don't mention your friend did work on it, he's not certified so they won't cover you then) they will probably ask you for you're laptop model # etc.

It's a long shot that microsoft will help you out but it's worth trying.

And slap your friend. Very, very hard.

I tried linux but i didnt really like it. I like windows. It had too many issues since im not a computer guy, i hate technology. I can figure stuff out, but i cant do a lot of stuff.

Or just go with Windows because practically everything is compatible with it.

yes. i don't need lip either.


Well it usually means 'end'.
As in "/sarcasm".
So /startflamewar means end start flame war.
There's your lip.
