I don't know what to do. I downloaded a sound recorder software from a site, the page that referred me to it said it had some toolbar or something, but i ignored it, i'm used to that stuff. Now, i downloaded it, and everything was runing smoothly, but all of the sudden some programs started to appear, with chinese names (I'm sorry for my wording right now, i'm typing this on a broken cellphone at 6 in the morning) I started deleting them one by one, thinking it was just some some spam, stuff like that, but then, 10 new programs popped out, i quickly disconnected the internet cable, i started deleting them, one by one, i had only some chinese things left, some tencent or something, and i couldn't delete them, i didn't had the rights. The sensible thing to do was probanly to download a cleaner frrom another PC and installing it on my computer, to try to delete these programs, i remeber a french software that helped me with this last time. But i didn't, i found out there was this thing, microso.ft photos or something like that, of course, i was not looking at photos at that moment. In a long chain i won't try to explain to make me look less stupid, i lost admin rights, i can't even go into my folders, computer just shutdown after a minute and i haven't turned it on since. I really don't know what to do, maybe start it in safe mode or going back to a restore point. I can't lose my files, i stress this, i'm homeless if i lose them. Most of them are on my second HDD that might be safe, but i'm not going to risk losing anything else tonight. I'm an idiot, i was too cocky. Please help me.

Hi, I will need to look at the system first

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
  • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Select additions at the bottom
  • Press Scan button.

  • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from
  • Please attach both logs generated

I'm don't think it will let me download it.

I can download it from my cellphone into my compuger.

Still, i don't think it will let me run it even if i do, i can't even access most of my files.

Can you access safe mode with networking
Reboot the computer and press and hold F8
Select safe mode with networking from the menu
You should then be able to download and run FRST
