Unless you have a restore point. No. There is no other way to fix it at all. Yes it will require a format.

Thanks, i guess. I do have a restore point, but Im not going to use it for two reasons:
-It rarely works. And im not talking about it not solving my problem, Im talking about how i get an error message when its done saying that it didnt work successfully.
-And two, my computer has been crashing at least 10 times a day. Ive finally fixed it and im not going back to that.
Thanks anyway. Ill live with it.
(Ive thought about formatting this computer for the numerous problems its had, but I changed my mine about it, i like it the way it is.) :freak:
