I just completed that process and it didn't change a thing. Oddly, the only two restore points that I had were five days ago and the end of September. I've had this installation up and running for well over a year so I would expect more restoration points.
It looks like I'm going to have to start from scratch. Wipe out the hard drive and re-install windows and all of my apps. That's the thing that really irks me about Windows is that a re-install requires reinstalling all of your applications. Back in the good old days of DOS, you could re-install DOS and all of your apps would run just fine.
The good thing is that I learned long ago to keep my data on a separate partition.
Now it looks like I'll need to creat a System Image as a back up for when this happens again as I'm sure it will.
Thanks for all the help guys, I'll be back with my next question.
