Tried a restore from  last week.  Nothing!!   but, found out you can't undo a restore in safe mode! .

 

Read about a problem with advanced security and messenger. Deleted all of WIN Essentials.    Lost parts of Norton 360.

Hi,

 

Did you try doing a repair?  Run it at least twice as each pass will only correct one problem.  You may nee to use a VISTA installation or repair disk.

 

Try a Windows recovery and repair CD from Geek “how-to” and NEOSMART.
