That option is the built in Windows restore, Not the system recovery that you need.
You should of been given either a windows disc or recovery/factory restore disc with your computer. OR it will have asked you to make a recovery disc when you first used your computer.

If you have none of these you will need to buy one. Recovery discs are about £15.
You may also wish to get a copy of windows to start from a fresh instalation

Set a new Windows Explorer launch folder When you run Windows Explorer, it...


Set a new Windows Explorer launch folder When you run Windows Explorer, it always opens to the Libraries folder. That's fine if you use Microsoft's default file organization, which designates Libraries as the overall container for your folders. But what if you don't? You might prefer to have Windows Explorer open to Computer or any other folder you choose. Here's how to do it:

1. Right-click the Windows Explorer icon on the taskbar (it's the one that looks like a folder), and then right-click the Windows Explorer icon from the context menu that appears and select Properties. The Windows Explorer Properties dialog box appears.

2. You'll have to edit the Target field on the Shortcut tab of this dialog box in order to change the default location at which Explorer opens.

If you want Explorer to open to a specific folder, simply enter the name of the folder, substituting your folder name for Folder, below, like this:
%windir%\explorer.exe c:\Folder


So to open Explorer to the folder named Budget, you would type this in the Target field:
%windir%\explorer.exe c:\Budget


If you want Explorer to open to special, pre-set locations, such as Computer, you'll need to enter special syntax in the Target field. Following is a list of three common locations and the syntax to use, followed by the syntax for the Libraries folder in case you ever want to revert to the default.
  • Computer: %windir%\explorer.exe ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
  • My Documents:%windir%\explorer.exe ::{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}
  • Network: %windir%\explorer.exe ::{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}
  • Libraries: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe

3. After you've changed the Target field, click OK. Next time you launch Windows Explorer, it will open to the new location you've designated.

The internet explorer icon is not responding (no matter how many times i clik)?


It is possible that the shortcut icon is broken. Click start and then click Internent Explorer apposed to clicking it on your desktop.

I would also recommend installing the latest available Internet Explorer for your computer.
Click here to download Windows Internet Explorer 8.( For Microsoft Windows XP or Vista.)
Click here to download Windows Internet Explorer 9.( For Microsoft Windows Vista or 7.)

Be sure to select your version of Microsoft Windows under the correct language. Click the download button to proceed.

Take care!

    It wont let me sign up. It just loads and caput! doesnt do a thing. Just kind of loads nothing. Does nothing makes me mad.please help me thankyou


    First, try to access the web site in a different computer that is connected to a different network. There are times that the site itself has the problem and not the computer.

    If you can access the site in a different computer, then the problem has something to do with the internet browser that you are using. Try to use different internet browsers (i.e. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera). OR, you may optimize your browser. Here's how:

    * For Internet Explorer:

    1. Run Internet Explorer and click on 'Tools' menu.
    2. Go to Internet Options and locate the Browsing History section.
    3. Click the 'Delete' button and delete the Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History.
    4. Close the Internet Explorer and re-open it.
    5. Access your e-mail.

    * For Mozilla Firefox:

    1. Run Firefox and hit 'Tools' menu.
    2. Go to 'Clear Recent History' and click the drop-down arrow for 'Time range to clear'.
    3. Select 'Everything' and then click the line beside details.
    4. Check browsing & download history, form & search history, cookies, cache.
    5. Click "Clear Now" button.
    6. Close and re-open Firefox.
    7. Access your e-mail.

    * For Safari:

    1. Open the Safari.
    2. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) and select "Empty Cache".
    3. When asked "Are you sure you want to empty the cache?", click "Empty".
    4. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) then go to "Preferences".
    5. From the security dialog box, click "Bookmarks".
    6. Click on "Show Cookies" button and then hit "Remove All" button.
    7. Select "Done".
    8. Access your email.

    Thank you and good luck!

    Downloaded itunes but it will not open or run with my windows xp


    Is it giving any kind of error message or is just not responding to your clicking on it? Have you tried reight clicking on the icon and choosing open, and if you have is tghere a different response?

    If the program is not responding, I would recommend trying to uninstall and reinstall iTunes to fix the issue.

    You may also try the following:

    First, please make sure that you have the latest firmware and drivers available for your CD/DVD-ROM drive. This can be done by visiting the CD/DVD-ROM manufacturers website.
    Then, clear out your C:\WINDOWS\TEMP directory (this is a storage area where files are stored before they are installed). Delete everything in this file, and your problem may be solved completely.
    If this does not work, you may also need to clear out your Internet cache (temporary Internet files):
    (Internet Explorer)
    1. Open Internet Explorer.
    2. Click on Tools -> Internet Options.
    3a. In IE6 - Click on the 'Delete Files...' button on the Genral Tab
    3b. In IE7 - Click on the 'Delete' button under the Browsing History section of the General Tab.
    (Mozilla Firefox)
    1. Open Firefox.
    2. Click on Tools -> Options
    3. Click on the Advanced tab -> Network Tab.
    4. Click on the 'Clear Now' button under the Cache section.

    - Empty your recycle bin

    - Run Scandisk
    1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
    2. Select Scandisk
    3. Select your hard drive. If you have more than one, you should scan each drive individually.
    4. Click Standard
    5. Check Automatically fix errors.
    6. Click Start

    - Run Defrag
    1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
    2. Select Disk Defragmenter
    3. Select the hard drive you wish to defrag and click ok.

    I hope this answers your question.
    Thank you for visiting FixYa for your solutions.

    Internet Explorer


    click on File at the top of the screen make sure it's not checked work offline.

    Also make sure you have valid shortcuts of actual websites on your desktops and not copies of those same webpages, the difference is that when you click on a copied webpage it will almost always open up as an "offline" web page. When you click on an actual shortcut icon of a website it will open up and go to the website, however you still need to ensure that "work offline" is not checked.

    Also update your internet explorer.

    Another thing you can do is, open up a program that you know will pull up a webpage and try it that way. A final thing you can do is go under the Internet Explorer folder in the Programs folder under your hard drive and click on the Internet Ex icon there.

    Not responding


    The Internet Explorer issue could be a lot of different things, but the first thing I usually look at when someone has an IE that's acting flaky is whether or not they have a bunch of toolbars and add-ons installed.

    Are you using IE 7.0? If so, go to Tools --> Manage Add-Ons --> Enable or Disable Add-Ons

    Disable all toolbars.

    If you aren't using IE 7.0, try upgrading to IE 7.0.

    As far as the mouse issue... do you have an external mouse that you're using, or are you using the touchpad that's located below the spacebar? Sometimes people that are using a separate mouse forget to turn the touchpad off, and accidentally brush it with their hand, causing the mouse cursor to jump around or activate an icon and such.
