Restoring your Windows 7 Gateway computer to its original factory settings is a great way to get rid of pesky viruses you can't seem to remove from your computer, or simply to remove old programs and files from your computer and start with a clean slate. Your Windows 7 Gateway computer will likely run faster as a result of deleting old and unnecessary files. It's also a good idea to restore your Windows 7 Gateway computer to its original factory settings if you plan on selling it, or passing it along to a family member or friend.

Recover From Windows 7 Home Screen Click the "Start" icon in the lower-left corner of your Windows 7 home screen. Click "All Programs" in the Start menu, then click "Gateway". Click "Gateway Recovery Management" to open the Gateway Recovery Management program. Click the "Restore" header, then click "Restore System To Factory Default". Click "Yes" in the "Confirm Restoration" dialog box, then click "Yes". Click "OK" in the dialog box warning you that all of the personal data on your computer will be deleted. Your computer will automatically restart. When your computer restarts the restoration process will begin. The process could take anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes. Click "OK" when a dialog appears telling you that the computer has been restored to its original factory settings and that you need to reboot your Gateway Windows 7 computer. Your computer will reboot. After the computer restarts you will need to configure Windows 7 with your personal preferences. b> Recover at Startup Turn on or restart your computer and hold down "Alt" while clicking "F10" during startup until you are redirected to the Gateway Recovery Management program. Click "Restore System From Factory Default". Click "Next" to begin the restoration process. The process could take anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes.

Hi, my laptop gives the continous message of "Relevant Knowledge" has stopped working" How do i resolve this?

  1. The removal of Relevant Knowledge is pretty simple compared to other forms of spyware/adware. First, go to the Start Menu.

  2. 2

    Select Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs. For Vista users, select Control Panel -> Uninstall a Program (it's in small print under Programs). Search for Relevant Knowledge in the list.

  3. 3

    Single-click on RelevantKnowledge, and click Uninstall up near the top. It will take you through the process, thus ridding you of your spyware.

  4. 4

    Next, open your Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete once. This will either open your Task Manager, or give you the option to open Task Manager. Make sure Relevant Knowledge is not on the list - if it is, End Process.

  5. 5

    Restart your computer. Relevant Knowledge should be gone! If it isn't gone, try this process over again.

My CPU usage is constantly a hundred percent.

When system boots click start button > run > type in box "msconfig" without quotation marks. Click on "selective startup" Go up to the startup tab > click on disable all. Click on apply and ok, reboot. When computer reboots, see if the processor is still running at a hundred %, if not then one of your start up processes is the culprit. You can go back into msconfig and check just those processes that you absolutely need to start up, like a third party wireless controller, anti-virus, malware/spyware, etc., but most of those startup processes you dont need to boot up.

Same prob

Anti malware and anti spyware programs are not Anti-Virus. Your first line of defense, aside from a functioning firewall, should be a good antivirus. If you are using AVG because it's free, I can recommend both Avira & Avast, and if you are particularly concerned about system resource use, Eset NOD 32 is known to be lighter on use of resouces. Both MBAM & Spybot are great programs, but you need to have an anti-virus updated and running to protect yourself.
Regarding system idle process, this indicates that your CPU has nothing else to do...
" The System Idle Process Processors never rest. Once powered up, they must always be executing some thread of instructions. When not executing the thread of an active user or system process, they execute a thread of a process called System Idle Process. The System Idle Process has one thread per processor. It has such a low base priority that it runs only when nothing else is scheduled to run. This process does nothing but occupy the processors until a real thread is ready to use them. On a quiet machine, when you would expect processor use to be very low, the System Idle Process will be using most of the processor time."
I'm not sure what your original question or problem was, but if you are still struggling with it please write back with a comment to this same post.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

No sound...anyplace from anywhere

What it has done is replace the motherboard sound chip drivers. You may be able to get them back as follows: -
Go 'Start' - 'Control Panel' -'Sound/Audio Devices'
Select 'Hardware' then click on 'Realtek AC 97' when it opens slect the Driver tab and then 'Roll Back Driver'. reboot and you should have your sound back. Do the same sort of thing with anything else that has gone missing using 'Control Panel' - 'System'- ' Device Manager' and sorting anything with a yellow warning triangle next to it
