Hello,
I did a virus dectection check on the symnatec website and an adware
virus came up: Adware.180solutions.
I followed the removal instructions for the registry part but I accidently
deleted a subfolder in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Code Store Database\Distribution Units
This was the subfolder I deleted: Distribution Units.
I was meant to find the following file within this
folder;{99410CDE-6F16-42ce-9D49-3807F78F0287} but i deleted the subfolder
itself.
wat do i do?
thanks
emma

Use System Restore. Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore and restore your computer to a point before you deleted the Registry key.
