Help me purge my laptop demons
May 13, 2014 7:00 PM Subscribe
I have an acer operating Win7 starter
(1) I hastily tried to watch a champions league game and picked up some bad viruses.
(2) I haven't been running a legit version of windows for at least 2 reboots and I don't have any current version I can switch to
(3) Attempts to use pirated versions have led to failure thru what seems to be windows versions conflicts or lack of crucial drivers that I can't find.
I understand that uninformed pirates, even if they're plundering Msr. Gates are not easy to forgive, but please help.
I'd just like to have a functioning old machine with a clean OS install and not have to get a new machine. Any tips, links, instructions are greatly appreciated.
