If your on a works computer the network Administrator has locked down the control panel to prevent users gaining access, if your on a home computer you need to login as an administrator as the profile your using has restricted access.
If you can gain access to another computer and then the web site to get to Compaq's web site I would. A) have the model and serial # with you. B) Go to their support page and or Tech support page. C) They may have an instant Tech/talk message page where you can talk to a Compaq tech with instant messenger. If not you could just send them an E-mail with your need to get the restore disks sent to you. You may have to pay a small shipping fee but they should be able to get them to you. Some one told me that they were able to get a restore disk/software from the web site. You may need to have a large USB drive or a Flash memory card to load this recovery software on. Worth the try!

im thinking you mean you cant restore your computer you can do a system restore if you have a operating cd or when you restart it has a system recovery just go to that and do a system restore and it should be fine
you have a virus or a trojan, assuming you have an antivirus and antispyware programme update it and then restart pc and press F8 while booting it up., choose start windows in safe mode, then select admin account and right click on my computer>properties>system restore, tick TURN OFF System restore, then run your antivirus programmes.
when run, restart pc, then untick turn off system restore and the problem should be erased.
The only other possibility is low hard drive space and a need to install more memory
Hanto is correct in saying "You shouldn't have to give it a name if you don't want to. Windows will self-name the comuter based on a formula that it decides on." but the install should not freeze regardless of which option.
Have a good look at the "data" side of your restore CD, make sure it is spotless with no scratches. If it is damaged see can you "borrow" an OS CD which matches the OS product on the license sticker which you will find stuck to the PC from someone else (idealy an OEM copy). You will be able to load windows using this and entering your "KEY". You may have some driver issues, but if your PC came with a 2nd Driver CD you won't have any problems, otherwise you may have to download them from the PC manufacturers site.
If this solution is of any help please remember to rate it.
Hi Alex. Try this. Switch computer on and press ctr and the f11 key whilst it is booting up. From there you should be presented with a screen which will give you the option to restore back to factory settings.
