    Yep works, now I need to download the right ISO, burn it and install it right? No files will be lost and the system will be fixed? Or just some of what we have deleted accidentaly in the beginning? I will still have the same issues?

    Yes you need to create DVD and run repair installation following my link.
    Do NOT rush anything. Read everything very carefully.
    Your data should be safe.

    I ''uninstalled'' the Service Pack 1 through safe mode through 'Command Prompt' and it said that it went successful and it told me I should restart my laptop, I did, when I came back on again, I went to 'Programs and Features' and to 'Installed Updates' just to make sure everything went fine but guess what, 'Service Pack for Microsoft Windows (KB976932)' is still there, why is that?

    Create Windows DVD and see if you can run repair installation.

    I have a good download but 'peers?' have really bad upload, just about 180 kbs, 2 more hours with this speed :/ Should I try uninstalling the Servic Pack 1 again? Or when I insert the DVD it will tell me if it's still installed? 2 more hours come on! Are you Polish by any chance? That flag in your profile on a different site ^^

    DVD will tell you if SP 1 is in the way.
    Yes I'm Polish :)

    I'll be gone for a few hours anyway so take your time.

    Hey, I have found a way to restore my windows to like 10 days back. Is it ok if I ask you to check if my files are ok? I'm not sure it they were back then, maybe it started off a small virus and that's how this whole thing happened. Just tell me what programs to use to share my logs. Would be greatful!

    Wlasciwie to mieszkam w UK :p Moze lepiej na PW :D

    I restored to like a month ago and everything works great! I think so anyway.. So all we did was just a waste of time :p But at least I learnt some new tricks, like going to notepad through Safe mode and finding missing files :p Thanks, I guess the problem is fixed for now!
