  • Depending what you are attempting to do select the appropriate option.
    1. System Restore – will allow you to restore your computer to a previous Restore Point.

    3. Startup Repair – Fixes problems with the boot loader.
    4. Command Prompt – Boots the computer to an administrative command prompt.
