is there any way possible to completley restore XP ..my "restore to the previous state" isint working. and plus i would just like to restore it to the factory condition because of recent problems. thanks ahead of time.
Check and see if you have a recovery partition in your HD. Go to my computer and check. ( if you have an HP you most likely have one. Which i dont care for) If not you may consider having a clean install of your OS. I would go with the fresh install...
When you restart during boot up you should notice " press f10 ( or anyother key ) for recovery. If you hit that key you should be running the recovery software. You will notice 2 types of recovery. 1 - destructive ( which wipes everything off and turns your computer to day1. The other one replaces the system files and recovers the OS. If you are infected never go with the second option. Save your data and wipe everything off will be the best bet.
