I tried to restore back to a earlier date and it didnt work .

Look up "Computer Repair". There will be someone fairly near. Most will come to you rather than you coming in to them. <-- This, BTW, is a double-win:

The Geek does not have to pay rent for a store -- and pass that rent on to the customer-- as well as making a dime for himself.

His costs are lower, so you get good service cheaper.

I am looking down the road and I can almost see the end but not quite
by the way , this is the busy hiway in front of our place
Y'all can tell us:

Them signs -- are they "Buffalo Crossing" or "Dome Ends Here" warning signs?

Scrolling down... I think I see the line where the Dome ends, with the vertical wall painted up from the join. Notice the higher up the wall you look, the blurrier it gets. Somebody was careless.

Now what do we do about Big? We can either bring him in from the cold, or have a buffalo eat him. [/sekrit typer OFF]

Can you check out how to get to where you can reset the computer to a date where everything is working? I've had to do that once or twice in the back. It was something like hitting F8 or F12 during start up that brings it up to safe mode and then you can choose to go back in time for the settings and everything reappears. Do some google search or you tubes, and you may be able to recover what you lost.
Angie is talking about System Restore. You can restore your computer to an earlier date. Which restores it back to where it was before it started messing up. You can find that by going to your control panel.

You can do a refresh. You will lose some Apps but won't lose files,folders or pictures. It just refreshes your computer.
I just had to do that to my Wife's computer because she got a fking Trojan and I it wouldn't boot up.


Something to remember from now on. When your computer is running good,,set a restore point and do that every month.That way next time you have several restore points you can use. Make sure system restore is set to protection and it will also set restore points.

Good morning Ness. Sorry about your puter problems… I lost all my stuff once, it was a sad day… Hope you figure it all out. I no longer have a computer. I do everything on my iPad and iPhone now. The iPad is easier as I can see a little better. Have a good rest of your day 🥰

Went to the Dr's Thur. Had my right breast examined because I felt a lump and it is tender. I am getting a breast x-ray. Can't think of the word it called it like it just left my mind. And after that I go to a surgeon. I don't think it is serious they called it a knot. I had one on my left breast years ago. It check out O:K. Just wait on phone call to set up appointments.

Morning OFC. Happy Shatterday!

Cool, overcast and threatening rain. Gonna be A inside kind of day. Might get a short walk in in between rain drops.

Damn Ness, computer issues and a knot on your breast. So sorry. Mrs Pute had breast cancer a few years back . She caught it early, stage one so only surgery and radiation....no chemo. Hope everything turns out for the best.

Speaking of computers, I depend on so many electronic devices I am always chasing a bug somewhere. If it isn't the phone, desk top or tablet it is my security system, televisions or pared devices. Then when you call support nobody speaks English.

Just started raining and the first golfers just showed up.....hope they are having fun.

Most computers nowadays also come with the ability to reinstall Windows over top of your current operating system. When doing that it should also give you the ability to reinstall Windows without deleting your old files. I've done this before, it's a pain in the ass but sometimes it's necessary.

Sending good thoughts sister! Grayfox had a benign cyst taken off one of hers, which is more likely to be than a tumor.

Too flat and not enough trees for me, but the solitude is breathtaking.
I would gladly except your help but I know it hard to explain in words. I'll be all right I have a repair man at Anderson's it's like Radio Shack. I'm just thinking of the cost. I need him to fine my recovery source. And my ions on desktop and starter menu.

Have a wonderful day.😻🐶🌱🌱🌱🌱 Potted 3 Bruce Banner Auto Fem yesterday. :cool:
