Hi. I used Adwcleaner to remove webcake. I also deleted it from the control panel. The computer restarted. Unfortunately many functions now no longer work. I cannot access the Internet; the desktop has been rearranged with a new look menu at the bottom of the desktop; I cannot drag any desktop items or documents.
I have tried system restore but get the following error message:
'Sytem restore is not able to protect you computer. Please restar you computer, and then run System Restore again.'
This does not work. I have tried in safe mode but this does not work either.

I am not blaming the product but am completely lost. I realise this is a very unspecific request but I would welcome any help. As you will be able to tell, I am not very knowledgeable about PCs and computing!

I'll report this topic to appropriate helpers.

1. Please let us know what Windows version you have and if it's 32- or 64-bit.
2. Is the computer bootable in any mode?

Hold on there....
