I was stupid enough to download an autoupdater.not realizing the changes it would make to my PC. I now have a different looking PC altogether . I have a box at start up that I need to click into to get started ,my documents and my music folders have a new look.My start up menu is different . A lot of web pages are now hard to read,the typing is so small.
When I tried to remove this updater and power menu, I was directed to Add and Remove page but they were not there. I also tried a system restore but to no avail. I eventually went into program files and removed them from there,but my PC still looks the same. I know this might seem trivial,but I liked the way my PC was. Is there any chance of restoring it back to the way it was,or am I stuck with it.
I will be grateful for any help you can give me. Thank you

What is the name of the updater program you downloaded? That would help
