need system default RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • A friend of mine was messing around with my computer and now I am having a whole bunch of problems.  It is telling me that my memory is low,  it is slow to shut down and I cannot add any new users when i do create a new user they cannot logon.  All my restore points are gone.  I need to restore the entire computer to their defaults because I do not know what he did and do not want him messing with the computer again.  Please help!!

  • I don't really know how to help since I don't know what your friend did and there are no system wide default settings. The best solution might be to take your computer to a local repair shop. Another alternative, if you have current backups, would be to reinstall Windows.

  • Okay.  After "the incident" I am now getting a memory error.  Can this be fixed?

  • The memory error you are seeing is most likely related to the to the changes made to your computer and should not be a problem after you reinstall Windows.
