Start the System Restore tool at a command prompt

1. Restart your computer, and keep tapping F8 during the initial start-up until you get options, select Safe Mode with a command prompt then press enter.

2. Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.

3. Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:


%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.

Look for the most recent system checkpoint created before the errors to restore from

For additional information about the Safe mode with a command prompt, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

That's not what we thought you were saying...

Many multimedia keyboards have the function keys turned off at bootup

look for an flock key, tap it to turn see if a light on the keyboard goes

Note: Sometimes, when you tap a f-lock key to turn the function keys on, your computer turns it back off when it detects your keyboard, so you have to tap it again quickly
