i installed spybot and performed a delete operation and now i have lost my task and start up bar. i cant get my computer to perform any function andf i think i have lost all my registry keys. how can i get to restore back to a good system? the system restore is not responding and nothing else is responding. when i log off it will say saving your settings and when i leave the computer on all night it still says the same 8 hours later and wont turn off unless i turn off by the plug?
can any one help?

Go into BIOS (like when you are starting your computer and it says "press DEL to enter setup") by pressing DEL. Navigate the menus using the arrow keys. Change the boot sequence so the first device is CDROM.

Exit BIOS, insert Windows CD and follow the instructions to reload Windows ober itself.

Open Spybot, Go to "Recovery", Check all the options and hit "Recover All Selected Items" at the bottom. This will undo whatever you did...
