Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Start the System Restore Utility 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

Im sorry but it does not let me click on anything it just lists the files as not readable then says file verification complete. there is no mouse cursor, nothing I cant even shut the system off without pulling the plug.

Press and hold the power button, it will go off then, leave it a minute, start the PC

Try tapping F8 as soon as you press the power button, though it may choose to restart the repair
