Windows 7 - More 'Doh's than Wins

When I purchased my new PC in July time, I was granted a free upgrade to Windows 7, from Vista, when the new OS was released in November. It eventually arrived yesterday, so I hastily threw in the disk and started the upgrade.
Halfway through I get a message saying 'Update Unsuccessful', and that it would revert to my old settings ..... FML. But for some unknown reason it didn't back out and carried on to 'complete' the install, or so I thought.
2hrs later I realise its totally fucked up my PC, when after 20 attempts to restart, it would'nt get any further than the 'Snazzy' Windows 7 Logo.

So totally pissed off, I then try to resurrect my PC back to Vista ..... no fucking chance. I've had to revert it back to factory settings and reload every fucking program, poker site, application again.

Then to put the icing on the fucking cake, I find I'd not copied my Poker Spreadsheet, or Household Budget Spreadsheets onto my external drive as I thought. So all my Site Balances, profit/loss figures ... plus our yearly Budget Info - Gone !!

....Blown out of the fucking 'WIndows' - so to speak.

That's disappointing! Well, as soon as you can get your pc working, try some good stuffs at http://www.bingohouse.com/ftp/bhs/bhsnews/cyber-bingo.html
You wouldn't need to download coz everything can be accessed there.

As a wonderful opening to gradually improve on one's play, highly-reputed application tables on occasion have bonus games.
