So I removed PalladiumPro from my computer yesterday and I followed the removal instructions from this website and they worked well. The program is gone but my computer started running really slowly so I shut it off. I go to start it today and there are no desktop icons, but the Start bar is there. I can't open any programs because the computer freezes if I try and I can only occasionaly get the task manager to start. Explorer.exe is running but some program called aawservice.exe is using half my memory and most of the CPU power. I can't end the task and when I start in safe mode it is still there. Luckily in safe mode I can open programs and have desktop icons however. I thought it might have something to do with the shell edit in the Palladium removal guide but I merged it a second time and my problem is persisting.
