Well if you did use System Restore you could have pressed CTRL + ALT + DEL to bring up Task Manager. Then in the Task Manager window, File > New Task (Run) and in the box type

c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

to launch System Restore and go back to a time when all was well.

Perhaps you should review your policy re System Restore?
