It has said the system restore did not work it mentions an error(O0x80070005)
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It says I can restore for another point
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Are you there?
Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
Hmm, I see - that's a quite generic error code. Please go ahead and use the 01/06 restore point this time; if it still does not work, I'll set up another remote session and assist you further with the issue. Keep me posted.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Actually all the task bars have now come up at the bottom so something worked should I close the system restore window?
Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
Oh, I see - so you are able to open up and use the Start menu now?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes
Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
Great, so it looks like the system restore did complete successfully; please go ahead and check if you are able to restart/shutdown as well.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I pressed restart and the message said my pc had an error so it was sorting it still whizzing! Of now should I shut it down now?
Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
Yes, please shut it down and boot up again - let me know how it goes.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
