Performed system reset on computer with windows 10 which removed program softcheck unable to find program check and want to reinstall

first off, why did you do a system reset? The system should not have removed any software. Try doing a system reset again but this time change the date to a earlier date. What is softcheck anyways? I had the same problem so it is something that can be fixed. If that does not work you may have to re install windows

I have dell latituded620 windows 7 my kids have encrypted the files and I cannot change the settings I can't get out of safe mode tried system restore please help

System restore will only allow you to restore back at a certain date, you can ask for a much earlier date and restore again, if you cannot get an earlier date, you MUST go into your BIOS and reset your computer, or do a fresh restore to "Just Out of Box". The latter is what I would do. If it's staying in safe mode, you can go into your BIOS and do your resets. While there, reset your password for admin so your children cannot open your unit at all.

I want to get back to my yahoo emails

I had this problem. I chatted with the Yahoo techs and Dell techs. The Yahoo techs told me it was gone forever. Through Dell I was finally able to go back and reset my computer to a much earlier date where I was sure that I had all of my emails and it all came back. I was told that I was very lucky as sometimes the Yahoo will come back and sometimes is does not. If you have not tried resetting your computer to an earlier date you might try that though you also run the risk of losing everything you have done or saved between the date of reset and the current date.

I forgot my security code

i am assuming this is for your computer;

Click start, all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore..

Click, restore my computer to an earlier point, then click next..

We want to choose a restore point that was at least one day before the issues started..

Carry out the restore. the computer will restart, then let me know if that fixed the issue or not..

This will actually be able to set a date and have your security code for your computer back as long as you set it to a date that you remembered your code or when you didnt have one on there.

I bought a new computer(window 7 system) two weeks ago, but now i cannot access internet explorer. my computer shows me that your last browsing session closed unexpectedly. So please experts assist and...

its possible that you installed an add-on thats causing this. there are two scenarios where you can fix this problem. First, if you still can open internet explorer, you can go to Tools, Internet Options, go to the Advance Tab and click the RESET button to revert your settings back to factory settings as well as disable the add-ons. Second if you cannot open Internet Explorer entirely, just restore your computer to an earlier date prior to this happening. To do this click on "The Pearl" (start button, on the lower left corner), All Programs, Accesories, System Tools, System Restore, select "Choose a different restore point and then choos a date prior to this happening. It should resolve your issue.

Cursor freezes when connected to internet

It's most likely a driver problem with the mouse it might be corrupted. Look at the mouse for the who made it. Then google the manufacturers website and add drive download to the search. Download and install the updated driver and your problem should be solved.

You can also use your back and restore function to reset your computer to an earlier date, that should fix the corrupted driver but updating the driver is always recommended.
