you need to do a system restore to a date before the change happened.
you will not lose any files.

try tapping f8 and going into safe mode. When it comes up, just reboot in normal mode. See if that gets you going on the right track.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
