I told him that, "I don't have any Windows Operating System on the computer, at the moment," I saw a faint smile cross his lips.
Your particular Windows problem wouldn't have happened on Linux.
Oh, and by the way, do you know that Linux is more secure, and you won't have to worry about spyware popping up on your computer at random times because programs don't auto-install on Linux. All program installations have to be sudo-approved before the install can happen, and this prevents the malicious software from getting a foot in the door. Oh, and updating doesn't take nearly as long on Linux, because there are hundreds of mirrors worldwide to improve the speed.
The software is broken into small packages, which is much easier to upgrade than a huge program.
You'll also find less frustration in the upgrade process because, unlike Windows, Linux doesn't need to restart to install an update.
And Linux can be upgraded at any time! The update doesn't wait until you are about to shut down your computer to install then.
