Question about Computers & Internet
Seems like the software program or something else might have messed up your registry settings.
When you turn on the computer, press F8 to get to a page with options for starting the Operating System. This only applies if you have Windows, preferably XP. Once there, select "Safe Mode with Networking". If you can get the computer to a point where you're able to use it, either run System Mechanic and have it undo the changes it made to your system, or run System Restore from Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore.
If you use System Restore, select a point before you did the changes, but recent enough to where you won't mess anything else up.
In the future, be sure to carefully check what each part of the registry being cleaned controls... Too much interference can be bad!
