Is it possible to restore to a previous system restore that is not listed? 

by on June 18, 2013

Q: Hi, I need to do a system restore on my computer but to an earlier time than the current preset system restore?
The computer is giving a system restore period of yesterday when some changes were made but I need to go back further than that but I cannot see an option of changing the date. What should I do?

Additional Details
The problem is that when I logged in yesterday, all the icons on the desktop had become word icons, in that they are all opening in word and giving an error because they are not word documents. I have run a virus check using Kaspersky but there seems to be no problem. Even the Mozilla Firefox icon is now a word document. What can I do? I really need some help.

My computer is running on Windows 7 operating system.

How do I restore from a restore disc I created when I bought my computer? 

by on April 18, 2012

Q: I need to do a factory restore on my dell Inspiron 1525 because the registry files have all been hacked making system restore impossible. Years ago I made an image copy of the cd that came with the laptop for such an occasion, but I’m having troubling trying to boot the D: drive instead of the C: drive. I hope this makes sense to you.

Also the f8 function does not show an option for restoring and I tried getting to use the rstrui.exe from the cmd prompt with no luck.
