I've been using HiJackThis to virtually remove any browser hijackes and spywares. However, sometimes this software mistakenly detects a software a hijacker or a spyware and I have accidentally deleted it myself. How can I restore the files I accidentally deleted and is there a way to prevent this from happening in the future?
How To Restore Items I Mistakenly Deleted in HiJackThis
Here a system restore will do the job. You can use system restore to undo harmful changes to your
computer and restore its settings and performance. System restore returns your computer to an earlier time
(called a restore point) without causing you to loose recent work.
Any changes that system restore make to your computer are completely reversible.
Your computer automatically creates restore points( called system check points ), but you can also use
system restore to create your own restore points. This is useful if you are about to make a major change to
your system, such as installing a program, removing a program or changing your registry.
To start recovering files go to System Restore… Start -> programs -> accessories -> System tools -> System
In the right side of the panel select the option ' Restore my computer to an earlier time'.
then click Next. In the next window you will see a calendar and restore points next to it.
Select the appropriate date and select a restore point. And then click next. In confirmation window click Next
again. Then your system will automatically restart and will begin restoration.
Hope these helped.
