First, it may just be a startup issue.

Restart the computer and tell me if it is still empty please.

If it is, tell me which version of windows you are running.

Thank you

When I went in to Restore I chose the last restore point there. It said create now REstore point description, I think I may have made a mistake and should have chosen restore to a former time!
