    This is what happens when people try to circumvent legal software by the use of hacks posted on the internet.

    The best I can advise is to back up anything you deem valuable to an external hard drive or a big flash (thumb) drive....64 gb or 128 gb. Once you've saved your data....I'd reinstall, a fresh or clean install.

    Welcome to Windows EightForums, Lily Qween. Truly sorry to read of your dilemma. I think if you perform what bassfisher6522 posted you'll be ok.

    I don't think it was your original intent and I can see your new, so I would advise to read the rules here:

    https://www.eightforums.com/general-support/53-forum-rules-please-read.html

    One of them being:

    4) No piracy or discussion of piracy allowed at all. Such as software, music, videos and other intellectual property violations (e.g. downloading youtube videos locally etc).
    Good luck to you and again welcome.
