Your computer should have came with a recovery partition that you can access and restore the computer to the exact condition (software) it was shipped. Look here:

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

If not then contact Gateway. Some places offer a disk for like $20 or so.

If you get it back to OEM state then at least get microsoft's security essentials. It is a free software to help prevent malware.

If worse comes to worse consider a linux live cd. Many run from the cd and won't affect the installed OS. They run a bit slower from cd as would be expected from a slow drive. Sometimes all the stuff works. It should allow you to contact your husband. If not you can call me. OOOHHHHH, just kidding.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
