Yes of course it is probably fixable.
However with atk, Windows, and your current level of expertise tough to make a judgement how long that might take.
I would suggest changing one of the variables.
Try a different OS, or a different Toolset, or do a bit more research.
A ilnux LIVE CD wont make your windows computer explode you know.
(might run a bit better but no explosions)
best advice? mix up the equation.
