General discussion


I was wondering how to reboot my computer and make it so that it functions like brand new. I know about system recovery but I dont know if that erases everything and lets me start fresh, anybody know how to I would greatly appreciate it.

What do you....

...mean by "it functions like brand new" ? Do you mean like the very first time you ever boot up the computer after properly setting it up ? What is the problem ? How 'old' is your computer ? 3 years ? Five ? 1 month ? A week ? Two days ? If you have a system recovery disk which came with your computer, then drowse its contents for the read me file, manual, or instructions files. That should tell you every thing you need to know.
