I'm in a mess of my own doing and I need some help! First a couple of questions:
1. Earlier in the week I ran a CClean to the registry and saved a backup. Does this save the entire registry or just the things I deleted? If it's the entire registry, how do I get that back?
2. I uninstalled my Harmony Remote software through the control panel, but then kept finding it on the system (even after a restart) and so deleted what I found. Will doing a system restore bring the program back? (That may be all I need to fix my problem.)
Okay, so I uninstalled Harmony and now every time I start my computer I get this stupid windows installer message trying to find the harmony stuff. I have deleted everything my system could find having to do with the program, so this morning I went into the registry. I know, bad idea. I was frustrated, what can I say? I started searching for "harmony" and found like 7 (and counting) values and started deleting them. I have stopped now and I know there are more of these. They come under the following heading:
InprocServer32 REG_MULTI_SZ and then a bunch of gibberish with "HarmonyApplication" in there somewhere. Please tell me I haven't screwed my system up for good! (What an idiot. ) Oh, I neglected to tell you that I haven't been able to get my computer to run a system restore since I installed a WD external HD. I have tried in the past unsuccessfully. Also, I ran a HijackThis log just to see if I could find the Harmony Remote crap and didn't see anything (didn't delete anything there either, but I guess that I've messed things up by going into the registry - can you tell that I don't need to be yelled at about this?!? lol)
Okay, any help would be appreciated.
I almost forgot - I'm running Windows XP Professional, Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop. Can't remember if that's all the info. you'll need.
