hi,,, have you tried uninstalling the program you put in,,,, autocad,,,, then see if you can open system restore,,,, if not try to post restore in safe mode and see if this helps,,, and just to be sure its not a nasti run scanns with your security,,,A/V and anti malware and anti spyware,,,,, good luck.

to uninstall,,,, start>controle pannel>programs and features> autocad,,, uninstall,,, then open start menu>computer>C: drive>program files and look for the autocad programfile just to make sure its uninstalled,,, if its still there , right click and delete,,,

boot in safe mode,,,,,, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-start-windows-in-safe-mode/

a good spyware scanner,,,,, http://www.superantispyware.com/

a good malware scanner,,,,, http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

download the free versions of both these scanners then update the virus deffonitions and scan.

yep i gatherd that,,,, thats why you must try to uninstall first to see if lets you post restore after that, then you should be able to run scans. Have you got a vista recovery disc???
