ONCE YOU RESET TO SYSTEM STORE THEN IT WILL SET ON RECENT DATE ...YOU NEED TO WAIT BECAUSE SYSTEM WILL MAKE RESTORE POINT AUTOMATICALLY AFTER SOME TIME

    Resetting a Windows-based computer to a previous date requires the
    System Restore feature, which is a set of dates for which the
    computer's system settings are changed. You choose a restore point to
    use the specific computer settings on a different date.Resetting the
    date is usually done to undo harmful changes to your computer by
    resetting it to a point before the harmful event occurred. It might be
    a virus, spyware, a corrupt software installation, a system crash or
    other harmful event. The reset will only affect essential settings but
    not recent work, such as saved documents, email, history or favorites
    lists. The system restore changes are completely reversible.Your
    computer automatically creates system restore points at scheduled
    intervals every few days. Users can create manual restore points as
    well, which is useful before installing new software or making major
    changes to the computer.

    1. Open the System Restore menu. Click "Start" > "Accessories" > "System Tools" > "System Restore."




    2. Step 2

      Choose
      your System Restore task. Check the box on the right-hand side of the
      System Restore menu for "Restore my computer to an earlier time." Click
      "Next" on the bottom right.




    3. Step 3

      Select
      a restore point date. Click on a bold date on the calendar on the left
      side. If you know the specific date that you want your computer reset
      to, choose it on the calendar. If a restore point exists for that date,
      it will be written in bold. If it is not in bold, it means that no
      restore point exists for that date. You can scroll backward or forward
      to find restore dates in other months.




    4. Step 4

      Select
      a restore point. Click and highlight one of the restore points. If more
      than one exists, you want on the right-hand side box. These points will
      show the exact time of the point along with a description that will be
      "System Checkpoint," which is a general restore point automatically
      taken by the computer on a default schedule, the exact item that was
      installed or modified, or a custom-made restore point created by the
      user. Click "Next" on the bottom right.




    5. Step 5

      Confirm
      restore point selection. This window shows you a description of the
      exact restore point you chose as a confirmation that the correct point
      was chosen. It also gives warning of what will happen and what to do
      before the computer actually performs the restore. Restore will not
      delete your saved documents, such as notepad, Word or email text, but
      they need to be saved before proceeding, or they will be lost. Click
      "Next" on the bottom right.




    6. Step 6

      Wait for the restore point to gather data and shutdown Windows. The computer will take a few minutes to perform the restore and then reboot Windows. Verify that the restore was successful.

3. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click to select the Restore my computer to an earlier time option, and then click Next. 4. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next. Note: A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK. sammiller001_2.png
5. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer. 6. Log on to the computer as an Administrator. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page. 7. If you successfully restored your computer to a previous state, and the computer performs as expected, you are finished.

My email was hacked into and now they are sending out spam to all my contacts. i can't get into my email now


Try resetting your computer to an earlier date in time before your email was hacked and see if this doesn't solve your problem? Go to start and then programs and system tools and look for restore system. Then just follow the instructions looking for an earlier resoration point for your computer. The restoration points are darker larger number on the calendar of dates that the computer will give you to choose from in this area. The computer will do the work for you if you follow the instructions. After it restarts, your computer will be normal again as it was before the problem started with your email.

Howdo you restore to factory settings e-machines laptop


It is important to know the difference between aSYSTEM RESTORE or SYSTEM RECOVERY . Restoring your system to a previous date when the computer worked fine may do the trick and to do this click start, click help and support and under Pick a Task, click Undo changes to your computer with System Restore, Follow the instructions on the wizard.

A more radical remedy may be required when your hard drive will not boot up, or when you can't get the computer to navigate through the windows you need for a restore point reset. This radical resetting of the computer is called a system recovery (not a system restore) This will put your computer back to factory settings but you will lose any files you had like pictures, music and word documents.
ASUS = F9
SAMSUNG = F8
If the operating system becomes corrupt, or if the computer is hit with a virus, the best solution is often to restore the computer and reload your applications.

The speed of my computer


What antivirus did you install? If it was Norton, then ... well, you see the result. When Norton was "Norton" their tools were excellent, but ever since they were bought by Symantec, the quality has nosedived. Norton security suite is reputed as being a performance killer.

I'd recommend resetting your computer to a restore point prior to the time you installed the antivirus. Uninstall routines are not particularly effective in many (if not most) cases.

1.Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.

2. On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.

3. On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.

4. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.

5. Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.

6. The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.

Restting a desktop due to virus or worm


get rid of Macafee, it wont help

restore to the earliest point you can, will minimize the spread of the virus then

use an online scanner like http://www.pandasoftware.com/ActiveScan/
and install
AVG free http://free.grisoft.com
Avast free http://www.avast.com or
FProt
or another av system that works,
Macafee and Norton are definitely counterindicated

system restore should be reset to the maximum disk space allowable, the tweaks espoused by many, of reducing disk space for system restore causes problems like this.
resetting the restore size will not magically replace missing system restore points, they are gone, but will give you more days worth of repair time in future, it will happen again.
