    Can't Access my Files at All.... Start Screen Unreadable


    Before I had my morning coffee, I obviously deleted a wrong file in the Registery. I was doing a "fix" removing an old AVG file (per AVG website) and accidently deleted the wrong file.


    Now after rebooting my PC, I get this (below) as my Start screen.





    The mouse works and I'm able to get these (2) other screens from the first screen. Apparently, variations off the initial Start Screen.








    I can not get to any screen that has anything readable what-so-ever.


    How do I unbrick my PC ?


    TIA
