It's you restore disk by the sound of it.
You can usually just put the disk that you made in to the drive and restart the computer.
If you can't do it that way then there may be a program on the computer that runs and reads the disk you made to restore everything from within Windows.

Cannot access my computer up date windows vista (TM) BUILD 6000 has caused an error code 0xC004E002 i'm running vista home basic


Try doing a System Restore and choose to restore the system to a date when in was working successfully last, or maybe just before then:
Boot into Safe Mode, then go Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then choose System Restore. Once the System Restore is complete, let the system boot normally and see what happens.

I want to retrieve an mms from my pc please can you help


Hi there,

Inorder to retrieve any lost information, you can try to search with file extension. Let us say, if you want to retrieve MMS videos, you can search with *3gpp or *avi as these files generally follow this file extension.
Hoever, you may also try to restore the lost files using System Restore function in Windows Vista. Please click the provided link that explains the complete steps for System Restore in Windows Vista;

Hope to get this working and you should be able to get the mms.

Unable to completely restart windows vista home b


If this is a name brand system, you would need to use either the restore CD/DVD that came with the computer or the restore partition on the hard drive that can usually be accessed by hitting something like F12 (depends on your computer). It sounds like you already reinstalled so the restore partition is out of the question. If you don't have the restore CD/DVD, you may be able to order it from your computer manufacturer. Other than that, you will need the installation disks/files to restore everything.
