Hi everyone, I don't wish to appear stupid but my 60 year old brain is finding it hard to grasp certain things about the modern PC. How do I start the pc in safe mode?
Another piece of magic I'm not to sure about is re-installing Windows XP when some files are corrupt(I think),I have a disc that say's "product recovery CD-ROM for Windows XP home edition,will this return the computer to the original settings?
Quite honestly after joining this forum when I bought my new PC a couple of months ago and reading all the posts regarding system crashes and other nightmares that can happen I'm scared to do anything in case something goes wrong! PS. I can't use system restore as it is not working and all I get is "your computer cannot be restored".
the recovery cd does just what it says on the box.you do have to reinstall all your printer/adsl modem drivers,software,utilities,games,etc.(it,s like having the pc returned to normal.)i,m mid 50s and in the same sort of position as you and have used restore cd many times after virus/trojan takeovers etc etc etc.this site is a godsend to us oldy and non techies.so good on you very helpful people who answer these questions.i,d suggest peg leg that 1/2 hour a day on this site would send your computer ability up and up and up.(mine is slowly and surely).good luck.
Can anybody please help,my daughter has been unable to get PC started,it swiches on gets to windows XP, then imediatly switches off to blue and then black screen,she has been told it is a virus,could this be right,if so how can she get rid of it,as she is unable to get PC running enough to run spybot,any suggestions please.
