I forgot, I have to rebuild my army again, because a decade long military upgrade didn't go very well even tho we spent a lot of money (I thought yahts and private jets will help the military).

The rest of my hyper non-presize weapons are shattered by the Neonazis.

Too bad I can't import some inteligent services, as mine suck.

But my priority now is to build oil machineries from scratch to extract that damn oil from the ground before existing american pumps start to wear and tear.

You can fix a botched Windows by mounting the hardrive in Linux.

* For example missing files/.DLLs

* Reset forgotten Windows administrator password - easy fix if you access the disk via Linux.

* There are even tools in Linux to edit Registry

* Cleanning Windows from viruses under Linux.

* Data recovery if Windows doesn't start properly, or files are locked etc.

* Windows backup/restore.

* Forensics

* Studying Windows
