NO system restore.

My daughter has windows 2000 and can not find any system restore on it. I have since found out from Bob that there is no system restore on Win 2000? Is there some way she can restore? I'm sorry to say I don't know anything about her pc. Thanks so much.

This OS was before such an idea was on the table. More.

In those days Microsoft expected us to attend classes, read books and wipeout then install the OS then our files to fix OS problems. Over the years the message has changed.

Tell what the issue that needs to be fixed and hope that there is a known cure.

Last known good configuration.

On startup, during the first POST screen, start tapping the F8 key. When the choices come up, highlite "Restore last known good configuration". (may not be the exact wording). Hit Enter and let it restart. It should get you back running.
You can get a freeware program called ERUNT. It will make a daily backup of your Registry. If you have a good screw up, you can put the system back to any previous day. That will help you find out what happened and hopefully fix it. For ERUNT, go here:

Unfortunately there is no restore

Unfortunately in Windows 2000 there is no restore - the only thing that bothered me when downgrading from XP to 2000.

Really sorry, in this situation I'd reinstall the OS.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
