geuine recovery disc RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am not very knowledgeable about computers and got lots of viruses etc when I bought this just over a year ago. It became so slow it almost stopped. I couldn't afford to have it 'cleaned' professionally (and heard lots of bad stories about the local company's stealing information etc) so a friend of a friend of a friend.etc.....agreed to look at it.  I left him to it with all the paraphenalia and discs which came with the system.  I later found out from a relative that the disc the 'etc friend' used was not genuine. This was  a few weeks ago but I have been unable to do anything about it, I have tried to use the system recovery disc but nothing happens.  I am really worried about losing all that is stored on my computer but do not want to continue using something which is not genuine......I need advice in greenhorn language HELP!!!
