  • Hi Jed,

    Then you will have no choice but to reinstall your Operating System.

  • Hi Jedking,

     

    You can contact your computer manufacturer. Some computer manufacturers hide their "factory mode" backup on hard disk.

     

    Hope it helps.

  • Hi JedKing,

    Did your computer come with System Restore disks?  This will reinstall your machine back to the configuration it was when you pulled it out of the box.  If you need to keep data that you have created, you will need to see if you can use System Restore to revert to a more recent state.
