Thank you
You should have a seperate harddrive partition that is laballed recovery which will wipe your computer clean and then install OP again with the factory settings. Look under computer and it should be there. If that doesn't work then contact the place where you bought your PC from.

I have checked "show hidden files" in manage folders but I do not see "recovery" as part of the My Computer listings. Is there a trick to getting it to show? I'd like to restore my OS but afraid to try it without knowing if the recovery partition is there! Thx!
