I believe I have screwed up my computer.. hopefully I can explain exactly what problems I have created. first thing I brilliantly did was go to a site <hxxp://www.howtodothings.com/computers/a3415-how-to-make-your-computer-faster.html>
and followed the directions.. ran hijackthis and used their link to a hijackthis log analyzer .. it was still running slow and since I was on a roll already I deleted IE7 that I was currently using.. IE6 wouldn't work so I upgraded again to IE7... this morning after getting tired of everything so slow I decided to do a systems restore.. now IE will not work at all ( am using FireFox) when I click the IE icon it will automatically make a shortcut on the desktop. my virus protection program will not turn on and I have noticed that I have no volume control button on my task bar .. not that it matters but a few things are gone that I can't seem to get back unless I pull out my windows XP disk that I do not have. I have tried to do a windows update but that too will not work.. keeps insisting for the windows service pack Cd.. I hope that I have posted in the right spot.. any help would be appreciated.
