I'm sorry but if your father has the system setup the way he wants it we can't help you override that.

Has anyone else been using your laptop? I don't think anyone could have adjusted the system restore settings on your laptop without a) physically accessing your laptop or b) deliberately accessing it through the network.

I don't see the relevance of whether you're connected via a wireless or wired connection.

How many user accounts are on your laptop? You need to be signed in with Administrator privileges.

Ask Dad. If he says he didnt do anything then you may be stuck, but you do need to ask
