If you are running XP or Vista, you can try doing a system restore to a date just before you deleted the files.
Depending on your OS, click on START>HELP AND SUPPORT and look for the heading that says System restore.
You will not lose any documents or emails that were created or recieved between the restore point and current.

Webroot problems


I just went through this this afternoon, I spent 8 hours removing and updating and loading McAfee and running it too.

Webroot is a bad program, it is hard to remove and some of the componets just cannot be removed unless you do a search for the file and then delete it....if you need a certain dll then the anti-virus should detect that and remove or quarantine it.

I would suggest that you remove Webroot, and install another anti-virus program...I swear by McAfee, it removed over 30 problems or quarantined them, it works and is well worth the money spent....If you have Comcast, it is FREE to download on all of your computers in your home....just part of the internet service.

PS...Uniblue registry booster is no good, and another one that is hard to remove...it has spyware too.

If you find the folder in which the scanned items are - it may be your my pictures or somewhere in your my documents you can delete them from there by clicking and dragging to select them all then pressing 'delete.'
