System Restore Won't Work

a few weeks ago I used a registry cleaner. I think it screwed up my computer. Whenever I reboot now, the welcome screen is in giberish [looks a little like "wingdings"], not english. The "start" button is also giberish. I can bring the start button back to english by going to control panel and changing the computer theme, each time I reboot my computer. The bigger problem is that my system restore is not functioning. the flag reads "system resore incomplete, nothing has been changed on your computer". I have run various spyware programs including pest patrol, and the new Beta Microsoft Spyware program, so it's not that. I have run various fix applications from system mechanic & Norton, and whatever the problem is, it does not show up. I am running Windows Xp Home edition, with Windows Professional Xp overlaid on it. Any one ever have this happen and know the solution?

Maybe your computer is set to another language. Set it back to english if you can.
