This is showing the box circled in yellow to check for it to show more restore points that Brink referenced.

Hello Brink,

Well I upgraded from XP about 4 months ago, so don't think this is it.
No I didn't delete any restore points, I feel the more the merrier.
Well my C: drive is 1.36 TB and I have 280 GB left.
Yes, but it didn't show any other restore points, but that half an hour.
I was just looking at a post you did about system restore,
and in the screen shot you had the level set at 10%,
and mine was set all the way to the left, I now have it set at 10% as well.
The reason that I tried to restore my system is, when I tried to delete the control panel
from the right click on the my computer, it didn't work, and now I have a control panel
on my right click that only gives me an error LOL, I'm some piece of work .
Anyway this is the error, I hope it post, it's a jpg.

How did you try and delete the Control Panel from it? The more details the better.

Perhaps we may be able to help you undo it manually to get rid of the error.

Bongo gave me this link:
How to remove
to delete this two entries
Map network drives
Disconnect network drives.
It work so good, and being the a*s I an though it would be
a good idea to try and delete all of them the same way lol.
Sh*t like this happens to me all the time, got to stop assuming things.

1)
You can try this first. If it finds errors run it up to three times to fix things. It doesn't always fix all in one run.
It attempts to restore registry.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

2)
Worst case scenario. You need your Windows installation disk for this.
Repair Install

You will not loose your files, folders or pictures etc. using this as you would with a reinstall.
This will reinstall the correct registry.

Franny,

If you do not remember what changes you made in the registy to undo them, then it looks like you're left with a repair install to fix it as Mike mentioned above.
