    System Restore will be your best escape, I just hope it was turned on and you have some restore points that you can go back to before the problem started.

    Please check your PM's.

    Boot the PC from this disc to get to the Command Prompt.

    At the Command Prompt, type CD C:\ and press Enter, then type:
    C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and press Enter.
    Follow the instructions given to perform the System Restore process.
    If Windows is installed on a different drive to C: then replace C: with the correct drive letter in the commands above.
