    Windows Recovery is missing

    It's totally possible to manually reinstall WinRE, it's just not an operation that's super easy and takes some technical know how. First step is to make sure your disk is partitioned correctly and still has the 500MB (or so) WinRE partition, does it exist?

    Have I been scammed?

    Even after you change your password you need to login to the Comcast webmail page and make sure there are no rules the attacker left behind such as all incoming email gets copied to another address etc... I've seen this a lot.

    I can tell you this, I looked at your Free Proxy List and port probed the few ones it said it had just checked to be active 17 seconds ago, hah, it's a total joke. I wouldn't bother using that site. The bigger question is why are you trying to use a proxy? If you need anonymity a good VPN is...

    Help with DhcpIPAddress
