Windows 7: Windows 7 starter and Startup Repair Utility

Windows 7 starter and Startup Repair Utility

Hello Everyone,

I hope I am posting this in the correct place.

I bought a Toshiba Netbook NB500 with Windows 7 starter a week ago and this weekend when I turned it on it started to run the Startup Repair utility. This kept looping around and wouldn't repair. I tried fixing it using some suggestions on this site and other sites but for some reason (my computer illiteracy) I just couldn't get it to work. I let the startup repair run multiple times for about 6 hours. Finally got fed up and returned the computer to the store.

My main question is now that I have returned it and even though I had a log on password can someone get on the computer to access what I had on it? There is nothing too important just worried about passwords and such. Should I err on the side of caution and change all my passwords or is the computer toast and no one will be able to get on.

Thank you for any help you can offer.

well if you are concerned it wouldn't hurt to change your passwords.
I recommend Lastpass.com to save and create new unique passwords for each site.
* Never use the same password on different sites.

Thank you very much for your response and the recommendation of lastpass.com I will check it out this evening and get myself setup.

Advice is much appreciated.
