PLEASE HELP - windows reverted to old style and no internet

Hi. Sorry if this is in the wrong section. I installed football manager 2014 yesterday along with hitman pro and malwarwbytes with no problems.

today I turned my laptop on and windows has reverted back to an old style with grey task bars. Also I cannot connect to internet.*

I have checked web and can confirm that it wont let me change to windows 7 theme and I can't perform a system restore as it wont let me. I have uninstalled hitman pro and malwarebytes and have ran a full scan with norton.dont understand why this has happened as my laptop was fine when I turned it off last night.*

Please help as I hate the fact something is wrong with my laptop as I have always looked after it. Anti virus defrag ccleaner etc.thanks in advance any advice would be really really*appreciated

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Hi and Welcome to the forum.
Firtst off it really doesn't help to post three topics all the same, it will likely confuse the isse. Put a post on each of the the other threads to say your problem is being dealt with here!
Now try to boot into Safe Mode and try a system restore to a point before you installed FM 2014. Norton will stop a system restore in normal mode but Norton is disabled in Safe Mode.
