I somehow got a nasty virus that shut down my task manager and nearly everything else on the computer.

It's my parents computer and I had no idea they weren't running any antivirus programs or antispyware.

Since I was denied access to msconfig/task manager/regedit and nearly every other application I was forced to restore the system to an earlier date in safe mode.

I didn't notice the last restore date was 2007 so I lost all my drivers and network connections.

Is there anyway to undo the restore without there actually being any backup for the restore or a restore point that can bring it back? I mean it looks hopeless from my end.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and I'm at the library right now so I can provide feedback on responses quickly.

Thanks again :thumbsup:

I'm SteinPooch, and I will be helping you today.

Okay, to undo a Windows System Restore, just go to the System Restore Program (if you can access it) and click the "Undo Recent Restore" button. It will say something similar to that at least. Click next after that, and watch the magic. Tell me if this doesn't work, okay? Please PM me if I don't respond within 24 hours!
