My wife installed Game Vance on her Windows XP PC without realizing what it was. After I uninstalled it, her system slowed waaaay down. I tried restarting it, and it takes several hours to reboot and then its still super slow. So then I ran the XP repair. Now when it tries to boot, I get told I have to register Windows before I use it. But its still that slow and the window for registering it won't finish opening up. So I F8 Safe Boot with with Network Support, but it told me I can't use it Safe Mode until its registered and it tries to reboot normally, etc.

I would really hope to not do a complete reinstall. And I can't install additional software.

Any help?
