There could be a saved backup within Hijackthis. Open Hijackthis, click on Main menu then View the list of backups. The available backups Hijackthis has made will show in the window. Select the most recent backup and restore it.

Don't have much more information about what happens once you've selected a backup. I haven't had to deal with this before (accidently removing something). Somebody will come along that maybe has had to to this and explain in more detail.

Good luck :thumbsup:
