I have a Dell Vestro 200 Mini Tower computer.
Product Key: J2X88-KW6BQ-9T794-QDDF8-JB6TQ
I was doing a system restore which was proceeding normally. I left the room for a few minutes and when I returned I had a black screen with white lettering which informed me that Windows was shut down to protect my computer. I was offered one of two choices. I could click on a line which would restore my computer to the last setup which worked, or I could wait until a timer at the bottom of the page ran out, at which time Windows would restart normally. Neither one of these choices had any affect whatsoever. I spent several hours over two days trying any and everything one might think of, to no avail.
I will be forever grateful to anyone who can tell me how to get my computer back from the limbo in which it now resides. Dell will only help me if I pay them $129.00. I consider that legalized extortion.
HELP! HELP! HELP!
