Hi ptrk_1969,

You would need to have a recovery partition to do that. Do you know if you have a recovery partition? It's usually called "D" and the operating system is on "C"

Why don't you give us the make and model # of the computer and we can go from there.

Thanks
Joe

This would show me a recovery partition, are you able to download and run that little program.

Please download MiniToolBox http://download.blee...MiniToolBox.exe and run it.

Checkmark following boxes:

  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size
  • List Restore Points

Click Go and post the result.
