Hey, I had thought of that but given my previous experience with windows restore i was hesitant. However I had recently read that the restore with windows 7 works quite well so I gave it a try! Seems to have worked well. I managed to find a recent restore point, and it seemed to have only removed one thing that it shouldnt have. (I hope!!) It was only a game, that i had installed 15 minutes before the restore point was created. So lets hope that was all! Thanks so much for the advice!
