I have a Windows 7 Aspire 5750G Laptop. Yesterday I installed a new Font that I inadvertently installed a toolbar with it. I can't remember the name of the programe, but when I tried to uninstall it, it wasn't there, so I tried to restore my laptop to an earlier date, now nothing works. All I get is The backup and restore application could not start due to an internal error: Class not registered (0X80040154). can someone help please.

AdwCleaner will uninstall unwanted toolbars

Try this -

Type cmd in the search bar and press enter.

On the command prompt type chkdsk and press enter.

If it finds any errors, type chkdsk /f to repair them.

I cannot vouch for this link - do check it is ok!

Error fix

Before that I would run Malawarebytes or Superantispyware, if you have them, to check for malaware. A link to Malawarebytes:
