Wait ... I think I found the ComboFix backup ... I found an ERNDT directory. How do I go about restoring the registry from this backup?

I have the original drivers, and I'm wondering if uninstalling and reinstalling the touchpad driver make any difference?

Try the drivers first. If not, to restore the registry run ERDNT.EXE, accept the default options and reboot when requested. Bear in mind, that when that backup was made, I have no idea of the status of the system so cannot guarantee what the result will be.

I uninstalled and re-installed the driver for the touchpad. Nothing changed except now in the Device Manager it doesn't say that I have a problem with the registry but instead says that it cannot locate the driver files. I don't know how this is possible because the driver has its own setup program which should have installed it.

So now is it worth trying to restore the registry backup? And if I do that, do I have to have the computer in any special mode, e.g. safe mode?

It's possible the registry has been damaged, in which case it's either try to repair, or reinstall the O/S.

Just follow the instructions in my previous post, in normal mode.

That did not work so I guess I'm going to have to re-install Windows. It will take me a day or two to find the disks.

It's probably best. Sometimes malware causes almost irreparable damage. In this case, I guessing that the registry has been crippled. Do you need to get any data off before reinstalling?
