This is not the first time such a thing plagued me. Sometime back when I was in class 8 or maybe 9, a similar thing had happened. My PC had suddenly stopped booting. It kind of refused to even start! After two renowned (by Duliajan standards) dealers gave up on my precious PC (P.S. I love my gizmos, but wait, this is more of a brotherly love than what you are possibly thinking), my father finally went to a place called 'Su Dot Com(or Kom, don't remember)'. They fixed it incredibly fast, saying that there were minor issues with my motherboard. Soon after, it was attacked by a virus which was active ONLY on Win 98, but totally inactive when we switched to XP (it is noteworthy that I was indeed using Windows 98 then, and also on 31/1/07, the day Windows Vista was launched). Anyways the only solution was to format the hard disk. I only had a 20 GB hard disk then, it's ironic, but now, I have the ability to download 20 GB in about an hour! Nonetheless, I lost all my data and vowed I would never let a virus infect my PC again, and I have never lost a byte since then!
