Please help me! My computer won't work. I <changed something
|installed something|deleted something> on the advice of <a
friend|someone on an IRC channel|some guy in the pub> and I
<couldn't access the Internet|could open any files|some
other vaguely described symptom>.

I then <made some random change|altered the
registry|installed some dubious program> and <it still
didn't work|something else went wrong|I get a blue screen>

So I <did something else|reinstalled windows|deleted files
at random> and it was still not fixed! On the advice of <a
friend|someone on an IRC channel|some guy in the pub> I
<cursed the computer|paid a friend who is "in computers" to
look at it|fiddled with more stuff I don't understand>. Now
<I can't login|the computer bleeps at me|the cat left home>.

Please help me! I don't have a backup and <the novel I am
writing|my thesis|a cure for cancer|all my kids pictures>
are on there.

Cheers,

First|why are/youwriting>likethis|
Second, if you really want someone to help, ditch the mini novel, and post
some real information that can be used to help. Whatever has been done in
the past is now water under the bridge...but the 'blue screen error, the
error code & message would have been very helpful in narrowing down the
cause of your pc problem.. If you are unable to post that, or recall what
you changed|installed|deleted|on the advice of a friend|someone on an IRC
channel|some guy in the pub...then you should at least start making a hand
written copy of your writings...

You forgot to hint at the theoretical existence of the vague
possibility of there having been an error message of some sort, at some
time during the above process.

And if you had bothered to read the documentation before installing the
product, you'd have known the default password, as well.
