Hello rlowtan, I have three suggestions to get your PC back.
I'm going with the assumption that this is an XP,SP2 system.

TRY...Options Back and /or Cancel are not available on the Page? If they are use one.

TRY...Pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL simultaneously, should bring a window up called Task Manager.
The first tab at the top is Applications,click on it if not already there.
In the Task window locate a reference to System Restore
Click on it to highlight it
Then click end task. This should shut it down.

TRY... Clicking Start,then Run
type services.msc in the box
In the ensuing window,called Services (local),scroll down to locate System Restore Service.
Click on it to highlight it
Upon doing that The words stop and restart ( they will be blue) will appear on the top of the left column.
Click stop to stop it.
Reboot PC

You will need to run the third try again if it was successful and Click Restart to to resart the service and reboot.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
