    Thank you for responding to me...First of all I dont even know what an o/s disc is and i know i dont have one....I know i can click on the bold dates but they dont take me back far enough...The first bold date is the 23rd of march,and that is the day the problem happened..I tried to go to a date that is before the 23rd but it wont let me...If I click on the 23rd-28(today) wont i just be restoring the problem that created this?

  1. Right click on "my computer"
  2. left click on "properties"
  3. left click on systems restore
  4. make sure system restore is on.
  5. open help and support
  6. click on system restore
  7. click on a day where there is a restore point. these days are bolder black. If the password to user was deleted they're are no restore points.

Another way is to log in as administrator not under normal log in.
press F8 on boot, select safemode, log in Administrator, no password.

log into to help and support, click on restore system etc.

Make sure you are selecting a date that is
bold ,
some viruses will stop you using the restore function,run anti virus and anti spy ware

then try this:
go to start/run and type in cmd

then type in the black box sfc/scannow,

have your o/s disc ready as this will check all the system files and replace any that has got corrupted, from the o/s disc.

good luck

    yes the problem will still be present.

    the laptop may have a hidden partition that holds all the programs that was on it when first built,when you boot up check the screen for what key you need to hit (sometimes its F11)to go to restore function,if you can do that, it will restore the laptop back to the factory settings but all other data will be lost.



    good luck

    Hello Jennifer

    no, recovering corrupted files from the operating system disc will not lose any of your data

you can run system restore which will bring the computer back to an earlier time lets say few days back with the help of selecting the date in the calender in the system restore tool.
To go into system restore tool click on start select accessories and the system tools and then system restore.
Select restore my computer to an earlier time and click the date in the calender box once highlighted hit next and wait till the process completes once completed it will restart the system automatically and will give you a message your computer was restored successfully in case it says not restored then you can select another Bold date i mean a previous date to retry again.

Got virus problem, in avast its been hijacked, i want to restore my pc back to factory condition, but when i do it it just comes back as noral???


If you system restore points are not corrupted by the virus then you will be able to restore your pc.

For that Click Start-> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore. Click Restore my computer to an earlier time and click Next, then select a date from the calender, and click Next twice. A progress bar will show and the computer will restart automatically when the restoration is done. When the PC starts again, hopefully your problem will be cured. If not, tell the error if any

Just bought an acer aspire ax1200-b1581a.it worked fine for a few days now it will pop up there was a problem with the internet and shut the itnernet down,it started out going blue screen and at the bottom...


I think the problem is related to virus. Try restoring your PC to an earlier date 9 a date when it worked fine). You do this from Start-> Programs -> Accesories -> System Tools -> System Restore. Select
Restore my computer to an earlier time and Click Next. A date calender will appear, select the preferred date and click Next twice. The system will automatically restart when restoration is done.

If u are not abe to run System Restore then you need to enter safe mode by pressing F8 during booting and selecting Safe Mode from the menu that appears. In safe mode you will be asked a question, you have to select no, and system restore will start

If restoring your pc does not solve the problem then you may need to reinstall your OS.
