If Lotvics click here does not work maybe update and run the free version of Malwarebytes just to make sure its not a virus.

I am presuming that you have scanned for malware/virus etc and pc is not infected.

If you haven't then scan with malwarebytes mbam.exe to get rid of nasties.

You will need to type a bit quicker.

You could try 145 right hand side.

Remove all programs from start menu and click on undo and see if that works.

Thanks for your quick replies Guy's
Yes I have scanned with avg used about 5 differant programs tried lotvic's link but no success done 5 system restores still no luck
I can't do a system recovery to factory because
I get a error saying(stop c0000218 reg file failure the registry cannot load hive(file)
system root\system32\config\security its log or alternate is corrupt or absent or not writable)if I could sort that out I would then take it back to factory state anyway thats another story.

Not to worry the wife calls me worse things.

Yes it was to try and press the [undo] button on the right hand side of 154.
