Keygen means a pirated version of the program, and this is what happens to the unsuspecting.

What program was it? Did you use file sharing, (P2P), software?

What anti-virus program are you using, and what do you mean by "messed up".

We usually lose system restore. Instead we have to repair the OS vis a Repair Install or other means.

Since the damage is unknown I can't offer any specific course of action. You may be one of the more lucky ones since some of these just wipe out the machine.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
