    Firstly, my IE's gone nuts and closes immediately after opening. So I followed microsoft's instructions to reinstall it, then I discovered I can't open any .exe files at all, showing 'the system could not find the environment option that was entered'

    So I tried system restore, but the same error pops up each time I click system restore, even with directly clicking rstrui,exe.

    I tried system restore in safe mode, which the restore itself worked, but the error still pops out when I open .exe files.

    It seems that all file system stuff is out of order, as I can't even attach a document onto an email using the system dialogue 'choose a file'. When I click add an attachment, nothing pops out.

    Before all this happened I did use a cleanup application called '360 Total Security'...but not sure if that's at fault...

    So what are my options now? I don't have a win7 installer disc as win7 is preinstalled in the computer when bought.

    Thanks...

    Edit: Win7 Home Premium 64-bit

    Hi I'm guessing that 360 Totally Security is the cause of your problems. Most PC's have a back to factory restore partition. If you attach your make and model, I'm sure a member here can help you.
    I'm sure things will work out for you!!

    Hi! You keep bumping but you don't post your make and model. I suspect 360 Totally has caused you this problem; if your issue started after using this software to clean your PC. I'm not familiar with the software, but these programs aren't needed and usually do more harm than good.
    I would suggest you save your data and restore to factory settings. Most Computers these days have a option to restore to factory. If you post your make and model, I'm sure someone will help you with your problem.
