What happens if you reset

Reset What?

If you Reset a Router then it goes back to the settings set by the manufacturer. It will be just like it was when you first purchased it. You will have to reconfigure it to get on the internet.

If you do a System Restore it lets you return your system to a restore point (date and time) when you know your system was working properly. It does not lose any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs. If you installed a program after the restore point (date and time) that you selected, you will have to reinstall the program.

System Recovery WILL LOSE EVERYTHING. It sets your system back to the manufacturer's settings. It will be like the first time you purchased the system from the store. All of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and programs will be gone.

I am victim of software counterfeiting

if you purchased software w/ credit card / personal check or even money order it can be traced and a chance of refund. wired money not chance... cash to a store chain they will refer you to Microsoft itself... download from the internet (other than Microsoft) you are really playing in gasoline. (this could have been worst a virus)

so if you can reset the pc start/all prog/access/sysytem tools/system restore ... set it back 1 month prior to this problem
hopefully this helps

Restore will not work comp goes thru the motions and comes back with unable to restore, it doesn't matter how far back you go

Hi, I believe you need to reinstall your operating system, follow these instruction:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} To install new version of XP. Insert XP CD into drive, reboot pc pressing F1 button.. This takes you into BIOS, change your primary boot device to CDrom, save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD once this appears and wait for files to be installed. Select the part of the hard drive you wish to use for your operating system (usually the largest) and select partition this drive. Delete any previous os, and reformat hard drive. (Be aware this removes everything saved on your hard drive, so always back up first) Re boot afterwards and reinstall operating system.
Hope this helps

Want to reset the factory settings

If the issue started happened after installing/uninstalling some driver/software, Then you can use the System Restore option offered by the Windows operating system. This will help you restore your computer's system files to an earlier point in time. It's a way to undo system changes to your computer without affecting your personal files, such as e‑mail, documents, or photos.

System Restore uses a feature called System Protection to regularly create and save restore points on your computer. These restore points contain information about registry settings and other system information that Windows uses.
