Can not click "restore" from previous versions in a folder

I was trying to get rid of some junk files from when I tried to install Adobe Cloud to my computer, I accidentally deleted some of the config files from the folder, and I want to try and restore them to a date before I deleted them, but it wont let me restore them? So I was just curious if there is someway around this problem.

Here is a Screenshot of the problem

Read this tutorial by Brink it could be helpful.

You could also check in Recycle Bin and see it by change the deleted item are in there and restore them.

Thank You Layback Bear, but unforchantly my system restore will not work for me at all, I know that some antivirus programs disable system restore but I have tried to disable it and also going into Safemode but it still wont work for me, I believe it has something to do with a virus that got onto my computer and corrupted some of the files or file that makes system restore work, unless if there's someway to fix system restore, I'm not sure how to fix my problem.

I don't think you are going to get the things you deleted back.

Not knowing exactly what you have deleted makes it hard to figure out.

Some suggestions.
1. Remove Adobe and install again.

2. Use this tutorial by Brink to check Windows 7 system files and post the results.

Their are more things we can do if need be.

Sorry about the confusion, it is Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 that I'm having trouble with right now.

Adobe Properties were the files for the registration, and I tried looking for the paper that had my registration code on it but I can't seem to find it anywhere, but I was just curious if there was someway to be able to click the "restore..." button next to Copy and Open from the screenshot above. Everytime I try to select a older version I want to restore it wont let me click it.

Also the link seems to bring me back to the front page of the forum everytime I click it.

Thanks Layback Bear, but that's not what I was talking about. I was saying that I lost my registration code for Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 and that's why I needed to restore my Adobe Properties folder in order for me to use the application, because I deleted some of the files within the folder that I need to restore for it to work.

Also I'm still questioned on why I cant click the "restore..." button next to Copy and Open from the screenshot that I shared in my original question.

From you post #5

Belarc just might show you that code.

If you don't have the registration code wrote down or it's not on your computer you will have to buy another one unless you have made a backup of your system and it is on the backup.

You have posted you don't have restore points.

Okay Thank you, I will go deeper into if I can find that registration code.

But I still have that unanswered question that why I am unable click the Restore... button next to Copy and Open when I have it selected to the restore point that I want from the screenshot that I shared in my original question.

By the way Im talking about Previous Versions not System Restore, that wont work for me.

That just shows me how to use Previous Versions.
