    Sounds like you are looking for system restore Right click My Computer > Properties > system restore . You can pick a previous date there .

    I would suggest first you try to clean things up

    Go Here http://forums.techguy.org/t110854.html

    Download Spybot Search and Destroy and Ad-Aware SE UPDATE and do a scan with both of them getting rid of all they find

    Do a scan with Housecall and panda

    After doing ALL th eabove

    Download Hijack This 1.99.0 Do a scan and post the log here please

    We will look at System Restore after things are cleaned up
