Dell 8300 xp home sp2
I was just tweaking and stuff, reading all your great info trying to speed it up.
Well I installed a program that filters the start up's and running processes since I'm not to bright and didn't want to shut off the wrong stuff.
I removed the program and with it 2 rows of programs ( start/ all programs/) including all system tools and more.
I tried to restore but it won't restore to any points going back a week.
I'm freaking out, I found a bunch of stuff in the recycle I restored but no changes.
What have I done? what do I do now?
I'll be up all night hoping for your help
the name of the program that started this nightmare is Absolute startup
