Tough click

I'm a newbie. Was having trouble with email settings in Windows Live. While searching for answers I clicked someplace to go WinXP. Now, I can't remember how to get my Windows 7 back. Any help will be appreciated!

I'm not quite sure what your query is. Are you dual-booting Windows XP with Windows 7 or are you just wanting to close Help down?

If it's the latter, just press the Ctrl+Alt+Del key combo, select Task Manager and stop any running applications you no longer want to run.

If none of the above suggestions work, you can always try a System Restore to the most recent date before you clicked onto WinXP.
