LOADS of trouble with My Computer


master brummie
I am getting loads of trouble with my computer.
I cannot seem to restore my computer to a previous point in time.
I cannot seem to access DELL as I may have forgotten my password and it did not recognise my email address anyway.
Would be great to have some help sorting this out.


Hello there Ernie,
If you go back to System Restore, as well as the possibility of restoring your computer to an earlier time, there's the alternative of creating a restore point. Have you tried doing this, and then attempting to restore to the newly created restore point. Remember that you can only use bold dates as restore points.
As regards your second problem, as Dell doesn't recognise your email address, have you considered re-registering? Only suggestions, but they may help. Will speak to you on Monday, David

Hi Derek,
As a shot in the dark I would suggest you make sure you're properly logged in. Other than that, I'm afraid, you'll have to consult someone in Admin.


Derek do a system restore,i never let the computer update because it caused probs weather this is right or wrong but it works for me



gone but not forgotten
I thought Derek was having trouble with the forum as the last Windows update was a few weeks ago.
