<<I am wondering if there is any way to save all my files at are inside the hard drive, or if anyone knows how to get my computer back to normal so I don't have to restore it.>>
Hmmm...that's asking al lot, if something serious has gone wrong. But...we'll see what we can do
This is going to be somewhat laborious...if you get tired of any of the steps or suggested approaches, feel free to quit. It's your system and you don't have to try to do any of what might be suggested.
Manufacturer of PC...and the model? Manufacturer is Compaq, Gateway, et alia...while the model would be something analogous to Presario 1234.
Have you tried any of the methods for repair which might be enabled/suggested by the manufacturer...and probably contained in the owner's manual?
Do you have restore/recovery CDs, provided by the system manufacturer?
Did you note any onscreen error messages?
Are you the only user on this system...there's only one profile?
Are you using the Windows firewall? Do you have an AV program installed and updated? What other programs do you have installed that are supposed to protect the system from malware?
Is your version of Windows current with all critical updates that should have been installed to better security?
Do you have access to a working, functional system...in addition to this one?
Is this a laptop or a desktop? I tend to think "desktop" but I make many mistakes daily
Do you have any reason to suspect that malware is at the root of your problems? Do you download torrents? Install unknown software?
Can you get to safe mode? Can you get to a screen where you can try last known good configuration?
You might take a look at a software program I had noted before. I've never used it (never had the need) but I've been meaning to suggest it to posters who seem like they ought to be interested in trying it. I suspect that it works (I use Avira AV), but I don't guarantee anything, at any time.
