Hello

I ran PC Pitstop Optimize today and what ever it fixed its created a HUGE mess. I restored system settings from the program however the computer is worse.

Major issues: :angry:

cannot reinstall windows 7
error: Windows could not retrieve information about the disks on this computer.

disk management (see attached)
error: unable to connect to Virtual Disk Service

add/remove programs from add/remove (see attached)

cannot access "devices and printers" (a green progress bar at the top just keeps going and the screen never loads up)

This is what i believe was modified however i have since removed the program.
Invalid Class IDs(CLSID)
Invalid Program Identifiers (ProgID)
Invalid Type Libraries (TypeLib)
Invalid Interfaces


This is just the start but Im sensing a fresh windows install which i would like to avoid.


Please help
