Part 1 for those who haven't read it yet
That afternoon I was wondering whether the laptop works or not.
During the boot up process the booting process seems to have a problem. It would start the usual PC BIOS but instead of going up to the bootloader, the system immediately boots to DOS.
And then there was this long message. Here's the full transcript (and I had to take a photo on my phone because after 5 seconds, it displays another message): "You are very stubborn. I told you to not to access this operating system and you just did. You know what you have done? Right after displaying this message, this device will be programmed to softlock the entire DOS subsystem. You can restart this laptop anytime you want, but you are out of hope. I also rigged the camera, so I will be watching your actions in front of this thing. Right now you are now being watched, courtesy of my hidden cameras placed around your house. Call the cops and risk getting a 50-cal punctured through your head. Destroy this laptop and I'll detonate the kitchen. Call for help and I'll make sure this chair will be your grave. I don't think you are this scared, but when this message ends I'll place a timer for when you think this isn't real. When the time's up, you're screwed."
Intimidating message, I know, but what makes this very dubious is that I live in an apartment room, not a large house, and I even don't have a stove inside.
Then a 2-minute timer starts after the message. I don't know what to do next. I peered at the window to see something suspicious, like a shady guy with a rifle hiding inside one of the apartment rooms across, or someone looking at my apartment room. A minute has passed and there is no sign of suspicious activity. Maybe the text is just fooling me further. I just sat in front of the laptop, waiting for the timer to expire.
When it does, nothing ever did happen when minutes have passed. It was just an intimidation message... until the laptop began to act erratic again. It displays an error message:
Invalid boot sector. Insert a floppy disk, restart and choose to start on disk and press a key.
It began to display the same error message after 10 seconds, after which minutes have passed and the screen's now cluttered with the above error message. And how in the world can I insert a floppy disk? I can't even get out of the looping error because the keyboard's inoperable. Ten minutes have passed and the laptop starts to emit a long beep. I was now confounded.
I restarted the laptop again because it was too annoying. Then the worst has came to me: the laptop stopped loading its BIOS. I messaged Meeco about this, but no reply. I went to a computer repair shop to have this laptop fixed.
After spending a few bucks on having the entire laptop fixed, the device is now changed on being booted to Windows 7, while the Windows 10 and DOS operating systems are being removed. The files are still intact, and no threats are being detected so far.
By the time Windows 7 has started up things became going on a downwards spiral. I noticed that the there's a second user, completely unnamed and has a completely blank image. I wondered who could that be and how'd it mysteriously create a user on this laptop. I tried accessing it, but I can't because it requires an administrator to access it.
As I accessed my account, I was greeted by a barrage of message boxes, all of them saying, "YOU DID IT! HOW COULD YOU?" I took a screenshot of the desktop then closed every one of them.
The fear of staying longer in this laptop has made me uncomfortable and compels me to complete the games later. I looked at the internet about computer virus and stuff, and almost read the half of the index. The most destructive ones (and usually the infamous) -- Michaelangelo, ILOVEYOU, Sasser, and even CIH -- I'd hope I won't fall victim to those viruses.
5:00 PM and I grew more paranoid than ever. Insanity grew. The next thing that's close of being insane was this.
There is now what seems to be a picture of a man in windowed mode appearing on the desktop. It's quite small, like it's the size of Minesweeper in Easy difficulty. However, I can't seem to close it as there's no close button in the window. I tried accessing Task Manager to close the window, but it failed. It needs an administrator to close it. And to rub salt in the wound, the window appears to be set to be on front, so whatever application I'm running, the creepy man will always be obstructing my view. But, that's not all this... creepy man has to offer.
There now seems to be a massive increase in storage in the C and D drives, despite said drives having nothing in them except video games and a few rubbish things. I checked it to find both drives chock-full yet the contents are left unchanged. I tried running Most Wanted but it crashes; Generals goes fine but the player data has become corrupted with rubbish data that all I can see in the menu is garbled text and what appears to be glitched textures of units and structures in the overworld. And nothing is even worse when Warcraft III had its data scrambled, with units unable to speak or has no speech (even with sound), random events of buildings going from full health to almost 5% of its health in an instant, and enemies acting like they haven't had booze in years. The games are nigh unplayable.
Whenever I access the social media -- Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit -- my browser always redirects me to a website called whathaveyoudone, a website which, as one may ask, is nothing but a page that flashes, with text that says, "What have you done?" in caps lock. And it closes my browser after 5 seconds. Other websites are accessible, like Discord, but most of the user interface is screwed up, like I can't type anything or something. The groups that I joined, as well as my friends that I usually have a conversation with, are now gone, replaced with usernames and groups all named "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE???".
After 30 minutes of seeing the same shit again and again, the system has gone haywire. Windows Explorer terminated by itself, leaving me with no graphical user interface but the creepy guy is still there. Technically I can still access Task Manager and run a program, but whenever I browse a program I can't access it, leaving me with a message box that says, as usual, "What have you done?" Now I'm stuck in a interfaceless Windows 7 with a creepy English guy confined in a small window and slowly tormenting my system. But the tormenting has not done yet; one hour after softlocking me out of the system the vital computer process lasss (or the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service) terminated itself too, leaving me with a countdown of ten minutes and with a message that says:
This system is shutting down. Please save all work in progress and log off. Any unsaved changes will be lost. This shutdown was initiated by iexplore.exe.
Time until shutdown: 00:10:00
Message: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE??
Now that everything is doomed, not only the system self-terminated by itself but it also initiated a countdown, leaving me with only ten minutes until shutdown. I don't know what to do next, as it's already locking me out. I had to waste the entire ten minutes by staring at the TV, sitting there blankly while the laptop has gone to oblivion.
Then the device turned off by itself.
