I was stupid >.<

Code:
REMOVED
Was told to put this in notepad then save it as a bat file and run it >.< I have no idea what I was thinking when I actually did it

I have tried reinstalling Windows 7 but I just can`t because I can`t shut the PC down properly. I can`t see what I am doing either because the deleting of vga. Can anybody help me please? I am using my laptop to write this.

I assume you dont have a backup then?

Boot into safe mode (F8) if you can. If not boot from win 7 dvd and hit shift +F10 to get you into a dos window.navigate to the folder (desktop?) and del the file.

Let us know if that doesnt work

If I understand correctly, you've deleted/renamed system files. Best to run a sfc scan from the win7 dvd.

SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

And if things still behave wierdly, a repair install.

Repair Install

Were you trying to clean malware? Or save some hard disk space?

From the script it looks like somebody was trying to wreck your system as the renaming is totally incorrect. Suggest you have a few short words with whoever told you to run this as abatch file!!

Whoever told you to this needs to be shot, plain and simple. Although it's technically (as you said) your own fault for not checking it there's still no excuse for this kind of behavior. I think your best option is to follow the advice given in post #3 and report back with any results.

I`m not even sure if the win7 DVD that I created even works? The thing that we are trying to do is to stop a company from looking into our processes that are running. Or at least that was the proposal yet I had already done enough so why on earth I actually did what the guy said in the first place is still beyond me >.<

I can`t even seem to open up a Windows install which is why I question the dvd, however my laptop actually recognises that the dvd is Windows. Also tried opening safe mode with command promopt and still just a blank screen

You may need to check that your BIOS is set to read your CD/DVD drive as the 1st boot device

It is orbital, I don`t know if this makes much difference but the pc I`m using is an eMachines EL1850. Yeah I know Teerex they shouldn`t be allowed to do it but are seemingly getting away with doing it

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause

Blah, blah, blah

Launch Startup Repair (recommended)
Start Windows Normally
Neither actually work lol. Startup Repair says it`s repaired something but it obviously didn`t.

I can`t even open a dos screen

No, the thing is that you are posting nonsense. What company would try to look which processes you are running? How would they be doing it, looking over your shoulder?

What company would allow an employee (you) to run some *hacker killer batch files* unsupervised? To do what exactly? You have no idea!

I mean, we are not idiots here, just be fair and square, 'I'm a kid, a friend or an IM contact played a prank on me'. It's not the first time this happened to someone. You'll get help here either way!

You will have to use the DVD, try what Bill 2 linked to you. If you don't know how to enter BIOS and change the boot device, it migh be a good idea to call a good friend or Dad or Uncle...
