Think I may have messed up my registry!
The other day I went on a bit of a mad one using those free registry tools which defrag and clean you registry. Then after that I created I partition on my HDD with G Parted, after I had created a partition I noticed windows wasn't functioning properly, so I tried to do a system restore my restore feature was switched of and it couldn't be switched back on. I don't know whether the registry changes or G Parted altered the system restore feature.
I done a re-install of my OS and used the system back up that Windows Backup made to re-install my files. The thing is though my PC is still buggy, the things which seem to be wrong are as follows:
*IE keeps crashing, but just one window at a time.
*I keep getting an error message telling me that I don't have a graphics driver for my graphics card. Even though I have the driver saved and use the same one all the time.
*My mouse and keyboard don't work to their proper specs even after I have installed the drivers for them, they just seem to work as though they have the default driver that comes with the OS.
*My mouse pointer from time to time will not work on icons on the desktop, although it will work on the task bar and the start menu.
Is it possible that the back up also saved the registry changes that I may have made os is it something else, and is there a way I can fixe this without have to download everything again. PS free software to fix this is essential!

I am really annoyed as I always learn the hard way, it's just as well I have paper copys of what I need and I didn't throw them out.
It did take hours to scan though.
