    Try doing a System Restore under System Tools to a time before you did your cleanup.

    solved

    restore would not work - turned out to be a registry problem involving bitdefender. -cccleaner and malware bytes (plus a long, involved, uninstall/reinstall of the a/v) took care of it....

    thx

    repair

    bit defender would not show up in taskbar- would not uninstall - ran malware bytes to clean infections, then cc cleaner registry fix, and tried its uninstaller- no go. tried revo uninstaller -no again -downloaded "my uninstaller (free) - and got it out. reinstalled bitdefender - and all is well.:grinthumb
