You can use the system restore tool to reset your system back to a date in past. Which operating system are you using? Because only Windows ME and later operating systems(windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista) have this option.

Icons on desktop distorted can not read or move them as they should be

What do you mean mixed together?

Try this: Right Click on a empty space on the desktop then select Arrange Icons By. Then select either Auto Arrange or Align to Grid.

Why did you have someone remotely fooling with your system? If the above steps do not solve it, you can always try to roll your system back to before you had iYogi changing things. You can do a System Restore which will allow you to select a date and time before you started having problems. System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs unless the program was installed after the Restore Point (date and time) you selected.

To start System Restore click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore then you can choose the date and time (Restore Point) that you want to roll back to. You can see additional date and times other than the one original displayed.

How do you reset the desktop

Reset? You mean do a System Restore or a System Recovery?

System Restore will restore your system to a particular date and time before you started having problems. It saves all your data.

System Recovery will set your system back to when you first purchased it. It will delete all your data.

System Restore can be run by clicking Start/Program/Accessories/System Tools /System Restore. Select a date and time before you started having problems.

System Recovery - Read the Manual. If there is no recovery listed in the Program List (by clicking Start/Programs) then you will probably have a certain key to hit when the system boots up. The manual will tell you for sure how to do a recovery. Be, warned unless there is a recovery partition on your hard drive that the manufacturer placed there, then most times the others don't work too well.

What happens if you reset

Reset What?

If you Reset a Router then it goes back to the settings set by the manufacturer. It will be just like it was when you first purchased it. You will have to reconfigure it to get on the internet.

If you do a System Restore it lets you return your system to a restore point (date and time) when you know your system was working properly. It does not lose any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs. If you installed a program after the restore point (date and time) that you selected, you will have to reinstall the program.

System Recovery WILL LOSE EVERYTHING. It sets your system back to the manufacturer's settings. It will be like the first time you purchased the system from the store. All of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and programs will be gone.

The problem is when click on application program it displays fatal error message of error opening driver file how can i fix this?

Is this happening on any program you click on? If so it means a virus has changed your program file associations.

Click Start/Control Panel/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore
When system restore opens select a date and time that was before this problem started happening. Let the system restore run to completion.
Don't worry, System Restore does not destroy any of your data, documents, music, pictures or videos. System Recovery destroys everything and sets the computer back to when you first purchased it.

If the virus won't let you start system restore then turn off your computer and turn it back on, start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the safe mode option and when it boots up click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and from there select a date and time that was before you started having the problem.

If you still have a problem after doing the restore, report back and there is about 30 different little programs you will have to run to get your program file associations set back to their default settings.

My dell inspiron 1525 was updating and when it got to the 3 of 3 update it wouldn't go past 0% and then it will restart itself and do it over again

Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.

The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

How to know dell 370 precision battery

If the battery is changed, that will mean that the BIOS was set back to january 1 1980.
Go into BIOS, set the clock to the correct time.

For DELL 370 precision , here is the BIOS instruction:

Replacing the Battery caution.gif CAUTION: Before you begin any of the procedures in this section, follow the safety instructions located in the Product Information Guide. notice.gif NOTICE: To prevent static damage to components inside your computer, discharge static electricity from your body before you touch any of your computer's electronic components. You can do so by touching an unpainted metal surface on the computer.
A coin-cell battery maintains computer configuration, date, and time information. The battery can last several years.
The battery may need replacing if you have repeatedly reset the time and date information after turning on the computer or if one of the following messages appear:
Time-of-day not set - please run SETUP program
Invalid configuration information -
please run SETUP program
Strike the F1 key to continue,
F2 to run the setup utility
To determine whether you need to replace the battery, reenter the time and date in system setup and exit the program to save the information. Turn off your computer and disconnect it from the electrical outlet for a few hours; then reconnect the computer, turn it on, and enter system setup. If the date and time are not correct in system setup, replace the battery.
You can operate your computer without a battery; however, without a battery, the configuration information is erased if the computer is turned off or unplugged from the electrical outlet. In this case, you must enter system setup and reset the configuration options.

Pc keeps loading and restarting again, it wont go past windows xp

I keep coming back to this, thinking about it, leaving and coming back to this. I have seen this before and the only thing that I could do to fix the issue was to do a Windows Repair using the original CD. The problem with this is it looks a little deciving and could be complicated. Put the CD in, accept the ULA and when it gives you the option to repair, hit R. Go through the prompts a little further. It will look like it is reinstalling Windows completely, but it is actually reloading just the system files that usually become curupt. When the system comes back up, it might look a little different, but all of your programs and files will still be there.
