If it is the same computer as you asked about on this thread, which you started on 19 Jan 2011


when you were being assisted by SpywareDr, then unless you have increased the ram - memory from 512Mb as advised, then the computer will ALWAYS be slow.

Also as SpywareDr advised you with a 40Gb hard drive and a computer that is I think about 8 years old, you would have to consider the merits of spending any amount of money.

That is, not to dishearten you, or to say that the computer cannot remain in service, simply that it will NEVER be fast. The speed of the processor is 1.5Ghz.

These specifications need not concern you for basic Office processes and browsing, but running mulitiple applications, intensive graphics based operations and the like is always going to be a non-starter.

I am a little uncertain if you mean that the computer will not now load windows. or if you mean that there is no longer a restore point. If you used the ONLY existing restore point OR the first restore point, in otherwords the oldest, there WILL NOT BE ANY restore points now.

Please clarify what you mean exactly regarding the state of the computer NOW - in respect of it loading Windows.
