Sure, there's always a way... it's called backup your data and reformat... ;)

Seriously, it sounds like EE damaged the registry. A System Restore is in order.

find the disks that came with your computer that say something about a "QuickRestore" or "system recovery" then you should just be able to pop that disk in and restart your comp.

It should give you instructions from there. (there may be multiple disks in your quick recovery set.)

unfortunatly i got my computer used from my moms friend so i didnt get any disks so is there any other way? or do i have to somehow find a disk

not if you have a habit om backing up your system but by default everytime you start up the OS and shutdwn window2000 & XP due take a snapshoot so if in any case you should beable to go back to previse setting before you had installed EE and if you install other software at the same time they will be gone also..I hope you have done this..?

Best of luck...later matrix1

how do perform a system restore

Start/All Programs/Accessories/System tools /System restor and go back to a date before you install the offending program

There is a difference between 2K and ME...only ME and XP have system restore

I had to remove evidence eliminator as it had screwed up nero and office xp pro and totaled xp cd burning wizard and windows media player,all the adds for EE are very dramatic and i got it just because i do all my banking etc by internet and wanted to delete all my keystrokes etc,all EE did was delete parts of my registry and i had no choice but to reformat,now using Cyber Scrub and it didnt cost $110.00 like EE,couldnt even do a system restore due to the amount of damage that EE had done,EE is a very savage program and should be avoided at all costs,and xp sucks,hope vista is better.
