Hello, RAN COMODO SYSTEM CLEANER AND ACCIDENTLY STARTED THE WIPE FUNCTION,WHEN REALIZED IT I CANCELED THE FUNCTION AND RESTARTED MY COMPUTER AND IT CRASHED.I COULD NOT DO A SYSTEM REPAIR SO REBUILT THE BOOT.CFG AND WAS ABLE TO RUN THE REPAIR.ALL PROGRAMS AND FILES REMAIN ON THE HARD DRIVE BUT I CAN'T OPEN THEM.ALL FILE AND PROGRAM ICONS HAVE BEEN CONVERTED TO .LNK.ALL SHORTCUTS ARE INVALID EVEN MY FAVORITES DON'T WORK.IS MY REGISTRY DAMAGED?AND HOW CAN I GET FUNCTIONALITY BACK.
If you had any restore points set, try rolling back to one of them.
Try using ccleaner to see if it can repair some of the registry damage. www.piriform.com/ccleaner
No all restore points deleted after system repair.Recuva lists them but they to are converted to .llnk files.
