My daughter had some friends around last night, and now my desktop doesn't work... Grrrrrr.
Apparently they didn't do anything, but it did get knocked and switched itself off.
Well, now I am having issues with it.
I want to do a system restore, but I can't get it to start.
It will not start in Safe Mode AT ALL. The screen fills up with files that it is loading etc, then it stalls at btkrnl.exe and won't progress.
I cannot start it normally on my account (corrupt user file)
When I start it as Admin account it starts, but there is no taskbar at all and turns off after a while with a message that some program has terminated unexpectedly and the station will close down. It then counts down and shuts down.
There is approx 5 GB of space on the disk.
How do I know if the restore function is working, has backed up any points? And how do I get the last point to revert back to? System restore within control panel is switched on, but I can't remember ever setting a point. Does it do it automatically?
I was using the desktop normally yesterday before they came round.
