i was attacked by viruses last night and tried to get them off my computer. i ran scans and they didnt work so i ran the system restore.. after that process, the computer booted back to how it originally was when it was first purchased. now some of my programs aren't working and a lot of things are out of date. i totally regret doing that. is there any way i can get my computer back to the state it was before running the system restore? please someone help me!

Unfortunately, a recovery restore from a hidden partition on your hard drive leaves you no other choice other than to accept what happened and reinstall your software back on the computer.A good thought here is that all the junk you put on the computer is gone so the computer will really run pretty good for a while.
