I've been attempting to remove adware from my computer and used hijack this and in doing so deleted a file that I shouldn't have.
Now when I start my computer, Windows loads but doesn't work properly. It seems to be frozen or at least so slow that I can't use any programs. I am wondering if there is anything I can do to restore it short of reinstalling Windows?
I would suggest doing a system restore, WIPES YOUR WHOLE HarDrive(press F10, well on my computer anyway, but will reset all settings, or you try going into your BIOS and reseting the configuration data
