Question about Computers & Internet
You might want to print this out:
1) Turn off your laptop.
2) Press the "on" button on your laptop, and *immediately* start tapping on the F8 key on your keyboard. This should bring up a black screen with white text on it.
NOTE: You may get a message saying "keyboard error, press F1 to continue." If this happens, press F1 and then keep tapping on the F8 key.
NOTE: If the Windows screen comes up, turn off the computer and try again until you get to a black screen with different startup choices on it.
3) Once you have reached the startup choices screen, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight "safe mode." Press the Enter key. If you are asked to choose your operating system, just press Enter again.
This will start a lot of text scrolling on your screen. Just be patient. When it stops, you will see a login screen. Log in under your name (sometimes this is "owner").
4) You will now be logged in to you computer in Safe Mode. A message will pop up asking if you want to use Safe Mode or System Restore. Click on System Restore.
5) You should now have the option to undo your last System Restore. Choose this option and follow the instructions on your screen to get back to where you were before you tried to restore your laptop.
If you need further help after that, please reply with the name and model number of your laptop. For example, "Dell Inspiron 530," or "Compaq Presario 3000." Also let me know what version of Windows you are using, for example "XP" or "Vista."

Close any Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer windows that are currently
Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset.
Select the Delete personal settings check
box if you would like to remove browsing history, search providers,
Accelerators, home pages, and InPrivate Filtering data.
In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings
dialog box, click Reset.
When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the settings, click
Close, and then click OK.
Close Internet Explorer.
Your changes will take effect the next time you open Internet
If you close all visible windows, but still get an error message
when trying to reset, you might have programs running that are not visible.
Restart Windows, open Internet Explorer, and
try resetting again.
To back up your home page or home page set before resetting
Internet Explorer defaults, see Back up your
home page or home page tabs.
If any of the categories fail to reset, it is because Internet
Explorer could not access a file or registry setting. This can be caused by
insufficient security privileges, files or settings being used by another
program, or low memory or high CPU usage. You can either continue to use
Internet Explorer without restoring these settings, or restart your computer and
try to reset again.
If you are using Internet Explorer on a server and have turned off
Enhanced Security Configuration or hardening (stronger security settings for use
on servers), reset will go to client-level security. You must reinstall
hardening if you want the increased security level. For more information on
Enhanced Security Configuration, see Enhanced Security
Configuration for Internet Explorer online.

Explorer add-ons: frequently asked questions.
