I have two laptop computers one is a backup unit working

Customer Question

I have two laptop computers one is a backup unit working normally but my main laptop crashed several days ago but now seems to be working but apparently with a complete loss of files. It also tells me "we cannot sign into your account" with the only suggestions that I "sign out" or "dismiss". A final message arrives saying "High Risk" and "Licence revoked"
Can you help me please? I might add that these message suggest that I have a internet available but cannot reply on the failed unit. (Hence why I am using my backup laptop with this message.David Madden (e-mail:***@******.***

ok, I want to do a system restore please.

To do this, close all programs.

Press the windows key (the one to the left of the left ALT key) + R and type in the run box that opens


Press enter

Then follow the onscreen steps to choose a system restore and choose a date before this problem occurred.

Let it complete and tell me if it now functions correctly please

As explained I have two laptops, the main one not working except saying "we cannot open your account" and this one which is working normally. Which laptop do you want me to close?

We are only doing work on the problem laptop, as this is the one with the issue
