To get to the system restore for sure ..get to the control panel ... be sure it is switched on category view...and than click the maintenance and performance...in this moment in the left side task bar you will have the initiation of the system restore......BUT!
if the system was turned off until now..you will not have any previous point to get back to ..so ..what you have to do is turn in on and you will have a point from now on...and a point will be made each time you install or uninstall anything ..
you can also turn the system on ...by right click on my computer icon...choose system restore...and uncheck the case that says turn off he system restore..I actually believe it will be possible to turn it on from both ways..
Have a nice day ..and dont forget to rate ...!

    yeah...I can understand that you expected to solve some issues by restoring to a previous dat ...settings..but I have no fault that your system was not turned on ...by default when windows is installed the system restore is turned on ...so ..if it is turned off..you have all the blame or the person that turned it off ..iF you have serius issues caused by viruses..its better anyway to reinstall it clean ..Just save all the important media and documents into another partition but C and reinstall and format the C partition again ....This will take care of all bugs and wrong settings and give you a clean start..

3. On the Create a Restore Point page, type a name for the restore point and then click Create

My on screen display has gone small


What do you mean has gone small? You mean your icons are smaller?

Try changing your screen resolution. Right Click on an open space on the desktop and select Properties. When the Display Properties window opens select the Appearance tab. Look down at the bottom and you can make sure your Font Size is Normal, if not change it to Normal. Click the Settings tab and change your screen resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons. Size 1024x768 is what most people use.

You can also get to the display properties to perform the steps above by clicking Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings/Control Panel. Look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open it and the display properties window will open.

If you are using Windows 7 you can also just click Start and in the search box type Screen Resolution. Look up at the top for the search results and click on Screen Resolution.

If you can't get it back to the way it was you can try doing a System Restore. System Restore allows you to select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having problems. So if you display went small yesterday, then select a restore point before yesterday.

System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected). To start System Restore click Start/Program/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore then select a data and time before you started having the issue.

If you are using Windows 7 you can just click Start then in the search box type System Restore and look up at the returned search results and select System Restore.

System Recovery on the other hand deletes everything and sets your system back to when your first purchased it.

I have a 5yr old Dell w/XP and use IE and Firefox. Lately I have been unable to access my control panel. I click on start then click on control panel but all I get is the ever aggravating hourglass and...


Here are a couple suggestions. 1.) You can run windows system restore back to a date when you knew your system was running fine.
If that fail to fix your problem than, turn off windows restore. You do not need to enter control panel to do this as long as you have My Computer icon sitting on your desktop. (IF not, right click once on a clear spot on your desktop). From the pop-up window left click once on properties.
Display Properties will open. Click on the Desktop tab. Than click on the Customize Desktop button. Desktop Items will open. Make sure there is a check mark in the box next to, My Computer. That will add the My Computer icon to your desktop.
Right click on it once & from the pop-up window slide to & left click on properties. Click on system restore tab.
Reason for this: if your system has a virus or Trojan it will copy its self into system restore. Turning it off prevents this. 2.) Run your antivirus software & check for issues. 3.) Download the free software named ccleaner; http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ & install it. Run the standard cleaner. Than click on the registry icon and scan for issues. This will remove double registry keys & corrupt keys. Than restart your system. When windows finishes loading click on update windows from the start button. Check for hardware & software updates & install em'. (If any). When you feel everything is running correctly you can re-enable windows system restore & create a restore point.
If everything above did not fix your problem you may have no choice but to repair windows. Load your windows restore CD into your CD-ROM drive and boot to it. Running Dell's restore should repair windows. Most of your data should be fine. Some programs may need to be reinstalled.

Cheers'
