Hello all-

I seem to be having a major issue with a program that I've downloaded. I downloaded Microsoft Office 2007 from a Demonoid thinking it was safe and after reading the comments it seemed safe. After waiting for hours and hours I finally downloaded and installed this program. It turns out the program was in Turkish so I then downloaded a Language Pack and had no idea what to do after that. So I then went to BitComet and chose to “Delete All Files”, well not all files have been deleted from my laptop…I had a strange feeling about this and I know shame on me for even going through with this. Indeed, I should have known better. I then attempted to do a System Restore and had to do that about 4 maybe 5 times. When I restarted my laptop after the restore, there was a message saying that:

“System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer’s system files and settings were not changed.

An unspecified error occurred during System Restore.

You might wasn’t to try System Restore again and choose a different restore point.
For more information, see System Restore: frequently asked questions”.


The file is still there. I had a strange feeling about this and I know shame on me for even going through with this. Indeed, I should have known better. I then attempted to do a System Restore and had to do that about 4 maybe 5 times. When I restarted my laptop after the restore, there was a message saying that System Restore failed to restore. After the 5th time I no longer saw that message but noticed that the file is still there. How do I permanently remove this file??? I’ve learned my lesson and will NEVER do this again…huge mistake!! Let me know if I can provide any other info. Please help…many thanks!

My OS is Windows Vista.
