If you have XP then you can go back to a restore point when you restart your computer. If you have Win98 then try this... get the MS/DOS prompt and then type in scanreg (hit space bar) and then type in /restore hit your Enter key. It will do a scan reg first and then give you an option to resrore to an earlier date.
When is the last time you did a Virus update and scan?
