Okay I have no idea where to start. Yesterday my friend needed me to test something for him in MySQL, a program I had installed a while back. When I tried to get in, it told me that I needed a root password. Since I forgot that, and I had no idea how to log in, I used Revo Uninstaller Pro to uninstall MySQL and delete all the leftover files and registry values that it left behind. I'm not sure if that is what caused it or something else that I can't remember, but since last night a lot of my computer services aren't working.

For one thing, I can't log into MySQL.

I can't install/uninstall any programs. - Solved.

I have my Control Panel listed as a menu in my Start list, but when I highlight it, it shows the Control Panel as empty.

I can't turn on my Windows Security Center

Posted Image

I can't access/turn on System Restore and clicking on 'Turn System Restore on or off' does nothing.

I can't access System Information - Solved.

or System Properties - Solved.

In addition, I can't click the properties of any folder (If I try to right click My Computer and hit properties, nothing happens), my computers sound is not working, my taskbar shows my internet as offline even though its working and I can't open pictures - Solved.

I also cannot run SFC / Scannow - Solved.

or run Windows Update - Solved.

I also feel like there might be something wrong with my graphics diver, because as I've been typing this post, my screen keeps flashing to my desktop - Solved.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I cannot pull up my specs using the program 'Speccy' because it says Class Not Registered for everything. I've also lost the CD for my Windows 7 Ultimate, so I don't know if I could use that to fix it. - Solved.

Edit 1: My video driver was in fact affected by it, as I can't watch any videos, and attempting to crashes my firefox plugin process. - Solved.

Edit 2: Okay so I went through Revo Uninstaller and reverted the registry changes for 5 or 6 programs that I uninstalled yesterday (Mostly Games, along with MySQL). Many of the things are working a little better now.

My computers sound is back, I can view properties for My Computer, and videos are running (but are extremely laggy and crash-prone).

Many things are still not working, I'm going to do a restart and check.

On the registry cleaning step, did you just remove the bolded items:

If you selected the none bolded items, then all I can recommend is a reinstallation of the OS.
