I am not sure what McAfee had to do with those changes but it shouldn't be hard to fix.

First disable system restore and then enable it. That should make it work again. Then Go to the Dell site and find your model. Best to use the service tag number off the case to get the exact drivers. Download the network adapter driver for your version of Windows. Link below will get you started.

Was McAfee, you've uninstalled, including any kind of firewall?
McAfee offers a removal tool, to get completely rid of it.
But the removal tool will uninstall all McAfee products, you may have installed onto your computer. You can't select a single McAfee product, to uninstall.
Search for MCPR.EXE, to find and get the McAfee Removal Tool.

I forgot to mention that not only does the system restore come up blank and the Exclamation marks appear near network adaptor, and question marks next to port, but I am not able to connect to the internet. How can I get back online. I am on a wireless network and the other computers work, but not the main one that is hooked up to the router.

Therefore, you have to install the drivers again.
Use the drivers CD, that came with your computer, or download drivers from the manufacturers homepage, copy them to USB-Stick and install them to your computer.

Check the device manager for devices, that do have problems and needs to install driver again.

You obviously have internet capability by using a different computer. Use that computer to download the drivers following the link in #1 above.

will I need to disable system restore and restart it, or should I do this after I download and install drivers. Will disabling restore and enabling it again let me go back to a previous restore point? Also, how do I know which drivers need to be installed again?

I also forgot to add, will this effect the network connection, and make me possibly have to get Charter to re connect the connection?

When you disable and enable system restore it resets it. You will not have ANY restore points but they should start working after that. If you don't have enough empty space to save a restore point it won't work.

Check in My Compute to see total partition size and free space. Run Windows disk cleanup or download Ccleaner Slim to cleanup you unneeded temp files and cookies. Get Ccleaner Slim at the link below.

After cleaning up the files go to manage> storage> disk management. Run Analyse to see if you partition needs to be defragged.

Create a restore point and then install the drivers that you downloaded and transferred to that computer via disk or flash drive, whatever.
