as you can see the options are grayed out here where I cannot even access them, let alone the other problems I had trying to follow Kaktussoft's suggestions...

But aren`t you already in windows there, isn`t there an option on the boot screen to do a factory restore before it even gets to windows ?

Do you have a Recovery partition ? That`s insane, you paid for a program you can`t even use.

Get on the horn with the manufacturer.

This is another example of why it`s so important to create disk images, it could have saved you here.

Anyone on, still willing to help a little?

I even formatted and got a disk and re-installed and I'm still having issues with "repair my computer" and now having multiple selections upon turning on the computer, instead of just loading windows.......


Hell I will give anyone willing to help, remote access to my pc, if they think they can fix it.....
