I can not upgrade windows, javaor my restore point/ what can I do ?
Windows XP comes in two editions: Home and Professional. The Home edition is intended for a casual computer user while Professional is intended for an office context. If you are experiencing slow performance in Windows XP Home Edition, you may want to reboot the operating system, which is defined as simply reloading the operating system by restarting the computer.
Turn off all peripheral devices connected to your computer, including speakers, printers, scanners and external hard drives. Click the "Start" button located in the bottom left corner of the desktop and select "Turn off Computer." From the "Turn off Computer" menu, select "Turn Off." Allow the computer to completely shut down. Give the computer sufficient time to rest and make sure that there is absolutely no noise coming out of the computer. Unplug the power cord from the power source and wait at least five seconds. Plug the power cord back into the power source. Turn the computer back on by pressing the "Power" button on the computer and wait for Windows XP to reload. or factory settings Restart the computer. Press the "F8" key after the computer reboots but before the "Windows" logo appears on the screen. You should now see the "Advanced Boot" menu. Scroll down through the menu options using the down arrow key. Stop when "Repair Your Computer" is highlighted and hit the "Enter" key. Select the language you wish to use and press the "Enter" key. Type in the computer's administrator ID and password. Press the "Enter" key. Scroll through the options using the down arrow key. Choose "Restore (name of computer manufacturer) Settings." Press the "Enter" key. Choose "Yes" when asked if you want to reformat the hard drive. Press the "Enter" key to begin the reformatting process. The process takes a few minutes, so be patient. Do not turn off the computer or attempt to stop the process after it has begun, or this may result in major damage to the hard drive. Choose "Finish" and press the "Enter" key to restart the computer. The computer will restart with the original factory settings.
Hope this helps.
