A little less swearing and people are more inclined to offer help.

First, what was the initial issue with the ignition key?
Second, do you see 'Authorizer' in add/remove programs?

Third, did you bother getting into contact with proper support to resolve your issue?

Highly recommend an uninterruptible power supply for your home computer. They can be found online fairly cheap and would help you avoid data loss or problems related to power failures and brown-outs.

Could a weird power surge do damage to USB connected devices?

Absolutely, especially if the OP didn't have a line conditioner or quality surge protector between the computer and the power outlet.

Actually that's doubtful, it would most likely do more damage to the computers PSU first. And although USB devices can get power from the main computer itself that goes through a few 'hops' between external power source and USB power source. USB can only grab approx. 5V / (approx.) 500mA tops; it goes through the PSU first.

I'd consider it more likely that in case of odd surges the PSU gets fried before any connected USB devices.

Which is not saying that this couldn't happen at all. I just don't consider it very likely due to the "hops" sitting in between.
