Each computer manufacturer has a special key you have to hit WHEN YOU POWER ON the computer Here are some of the keys,
HP and Compaq desktops/towers use F10,
E Machines and Gateway PC use F11,
Toshiba laptop F12,
Sony PC F10 .
IBM and Lenovo F11
Here is the trick- power the computer off, and then power it back on and start tapping the appropriate key eg F10 until a screen pops up saying "DO YOU WANT TO DO A SYSTEM RESTORE" Once this system restore window opens, stop tapping and just follow the instructions. Some of the older computers may ask you for the restore discs so have those ready. Most newer computers do not need restore discs. The whole system restore could take 2 or 3 hours. When done, reboot your computer and it should be all new and speedy again.
HOPE, THIS WILL HELP YOU !!!!
