Computer was running when power outage struck. Computer was shut down and when I started up my computer, a window appeared and said something about my Start-Up Configuration being in Safe Mode. Bottom toolbar is gray (it’s usually blue) and many toolbar icons are missing. Font is different as well.
Not only am I now not able to connect to the Internet (Activity light not on), but my Help and Support will not function (computer beeps) and “Help and Support” Window Reads “Windows cannot open help and support because a system service is not running. To fix this problem, start service named ‘help and support.’”
On top of this, my System Restore had been switched to “off.” I switched it to "off" last month when installing a new printer/scanner but I remember switching it back on. So, I don't know how system restore got switched to "off."
So, Windows software is corrupted. Total Area Connection Icon not Visible. Device Manager shows nothing. Network Connection not working and IP addresses are at 0 when I ran Startup –Run---services.msc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
