Unless you created a backup, or have a recovery partition from the manufacturer, your only option is System Restore.

If it cheers you up any, Windows 7 has a feature that allows you to scan for programs that will be affected by a System Restore.

You may have made it worse with optimizers and registry cleaners which are largely crapware.

The only tools for cleaning and optimizing recognized by all professionals as state-of-the-art are CCleaner ("Run Cleaner" button and Registry tab) and Auslogics defraggers.

After clean reinstall, check performance after installation of Windows Updates, MS Security Essentials or Avast, each driver missing in Device Manager and programs.

When complete, run CCleaner and Disk and Registry defraggers. Then save a Win7 Backup Image exernally so you never have to reinstall again - just reimage the HD or a replacement using install DVD Repair console.

Windows 7 Home Premium keeps changing System Restore allocation amount
I typically have it set to 3-4% of the 320 GB drive Windows is on but every so often it insists on changing it to 50% without my consent. What is causing this? This is on the 64 bit version of Home Premium also.
