scanreg /restore

on boot up, hit f8 just before win logo.
in that menu, choose c: prompt only.
at c: type in c:\scanreg/restore [note the forward slash] in that menu choose an earlier date to restore...there should be the last 5 days.

If F8 doesn't work for you, hold down the Ctrl key on boot-up until the Windows menu appears, then from that menu choose "Command Prompt Only" (option 5 IIRC) then type "scanreg /restore" (without the quote marks), hit the Return key and choose a backup to restore.
