"No amount of guilt can change the past and no amount of worrying can change the future. Go easy on yourself, for the outcome of all affairs is determined by Allah's decree. If something is meant to go elsewhere, it will never come your way, but if it is yours by destiny, from you it cannot flee." -Umar Al-Khattab
I miss my old friends. Who are less judgemental. Who listened to me without telling others the story. Whom i can call my sisters. Perhaps it takes 5 years and more to realize a true friendship. *teary-eyed*
Ps: Al-fatihah. Thank you :] I need to refurbish this blog. Mati tak mengenal usia. I guess i miss you.
So i was updating my bitdefender antivirus plus 2013 to the 2015 (latest version which has the new computer optimization feature) earlier this morning, tho i still have 275 days left on my current antivirus. Yeah, i bought the valid license key. It was written that i could upgrade for free so i thought, why not? (I will tell u later why not.)
As i went through the lengthy process of uninstall and re-installation, i finally got my new antivirus ready. Yeay me! However, when i entered my existing license key, it says--invalid. My heart crushed. How could this happen? I was sure i read the post about free upgrade clearly. Blergh!
So i rant it out & emailed bitdefender asking why can't i use my validated key but there's still no response.
I got impatient, so i searched for free key, keygen, and crack version. The key & keygen didn't work, so i downloaded the crack version. The app was Xan___ sth. All i need to do was shut off the antivirus and open the app and reboot my laptop using safemode and after it's done, the laptop will reboot to normal. I did it sucessfully, the activation thing, but when i rebooted to the normal windows, my laptop said-- windows fail to start.
Oookay. I was anxious. I tried the 'system repair' function but still, it didn't work. After the windows logo, my screen went black with my cursor hanging around. I freaked out then. I googled and most of the solutions couldn't be done, as i had no latest system back up restored. The only option was either to run windows using CD or to use Dell Data Recovery & Local Back up. I chose the latter one because i don't have internal CD player. Thank u Dell for this feature! It could restore my OS to factory setting without deleting my personal files. I could choose what to back up. And sadly, I don't have enough internal HDD memory to do that. I just need to buy a new external HDD so that i could back up all my precious pics & videos & ebooks and restore my windows. Money again 😪💸💸 But better than nothing aite?
Oh why i shouldn't be doing this on the first place, u asked? Because i have my pro exams going on now! (It's the final exam that determines whether i'm eligible to be a dentist) And i wasted half of my day doing THIS. Lesson learnt, pretty harshly. 😂
Alright. I'm not an ICT student, i know. Please pray for both my exams & laptop will ya? Thanks 😊 (trying to accept the fact that i won't have laptop for a week 😢)
