I recently tried to uninstall some adware from my computer using YAC. It did, but it severly neutered my computer and now it's running super slowly and won't produce any sound. Is there a way to revert the changes done by this? I tried to system restore but that failed, and I was thinking of doing a clean install of windows 7.

First of all - welcome to BC !

 

I am sorry to say this but it seems you have been taken to the cleaners, see :-

A re-install may well be your only way out of this.

I take it you do not have recent OS partition and data paritition backups?  If not, a fresh reinstall may be your only QuickButThorough way out of this.  And, toss YAC into the fire.

dc3, one of the best and most thorough and seasoned BC techs, has a post somewhere about that very thing.  You'll have to search for dc3 Windows 7 USB terms.
