Question about IOGear (GBU211) Bluetooth Wireless Adapter
I installed the iogear bluetooth adapter to my toshiba satellite 1400 laptop - now the classic windows xp logon screen displays instead of the welcome screen - - can you help?
(I have since uninstalled the bluetooth software from my laptop - - )
My Toshiba Laptop was setup to create automatic "System Restore Points"...I simply went back to the system restore point one day prior to installing the Iogear Bluetooth software: (my computer>accessories>toshiba tools>system restore).
I now have my Windows XP Welcome Screen back - -any changes or program installations I've made after the restore date will need to be reinstalled or reapplied, but I didn't have much on the laptop anyway, since I had just got it!
I would suggest backing up any files or data you may want to save before doing the system restore on any computer (maybe on a flashdrive or sd card, someplace other than the harddrive - then you can select what you want to install - excluding the culprit that caused you the problem). The system restore option will backup certain system files - notifying you of the new filenames after the restore has completed.
If the system restore process doesn't work, you do have the option of 'going back' to the last system settings, or trying another 'System Restore Point'.
If any desktop or laptop pc has a 'System Restore' option, I highly recommend turning this feature on....it may prevent a lot of headaches and problems!
One suggestion - BACKUP your system somewhere before making any major changes to your system...especially before installing new applications, or even before changing your system profiles or connectivity options...so many things can't easily be 'undone' !
