The damage would more likely be the result of the hard shutdown. This can damage file in a application which was running at the time.
Doing a System Restore does seem to have worked, this would have returned the operating system back to the condition it was on the date that you chose.
If there are any further problems I would suggest running sfc /scannow .
Open an elevated command prompt. To do this go to Start> All Programs> Accessories> right click on Command Prompt and then click on Run as administrator.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
Type the following command, and then press ENTER: sfc /scannow
The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
